  • Description


    Update; We currently are looking for 1 more person or a couple to join our other volunteers at our Casa helping with improving the property. We are only looking for people who can stay for at least 1 month so the projects you start can be finished.

    The most important help we are looking for now is:

    A great professional photographers
    A Web master
    An interior designer

    Our casa is a villa set on a private beach on La Boquilla in Oaxaca Mexico.
    We are a local family from the near by town that rents our property during peak seasons to tourist.

    During the low season we will open our home to Workawayers to do some construction and repairs.
    You would have access to the full property, which includes a 4 bedroom villa each with its own ensuite and veranda. The villa is set on 3 floors with an open concept living, dinning and kitchen.
    We also provide snorkeling gear and bikes for your use.
    We will also supply basic ingredients for you to prepare meals such as coffee, rice and beans.

    There are many beach towns within 10 minutes by local bus that cost $1USD to travel too.

    Also food and shopping is plentiful and very cheap!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This area is very traditional and not as touristy as the Caribbean coast and other parts of Mexico.
    There is much culture in this area and the people take great pride in keeping many of their traditions alive.

  • Help


    The house is newly built but we would like to enhance the property by adding more deck space, a pool, a retaining wall, gardening as well as construct a building to use as a spa including a temazcal and some other projects

    You would need to have skills in building, construction and electrical.

    We would love people who are able to manage themselves and creative types are definitely welcome!!!
