  • Description


    I'm Dermot from Ireland, I moved to Guanajuato three years ago and fell in love with this magical, romantic city. It's a Unesco Heritage Site, 5

    hours from Mexico City and is located within a few hours of many other Unesco colonial cities. Guanajuato is the cultural capital of Mexico and its also a university town so its full of young people, with lots of free music, and its inexpensive compared to other Mexican cities.

    I just bought a house here which is located in a safe neighborhood on the panoramica, 5 min walk from El Pipila. The house has fantastic views, 3 patios and a great terrace. What I am looking for is help marketing my business..i want to market my place as a volunteer house where volunteers can work with local nonprofits and also receive spanish classes...i need help researching what websites i should join to have a strong online presence...also i need help painting, cleaning and organizing the house. I plan on turning it into a health/meditation/yoga center. I want us to enjoy sharing beers and working together on this project.
