I am Florian, from Belgium, developing this non-profit project for humanity, I am in the area of Tapachula since +3 years but since more than a year in this wild area & serving... Such an amazing human experience surrounded by nature and her elements, in this old coffee farm, with tropical fruits, river, animals & most importantly freedom & peace 🙏🌱❤

    > community living
    > barefoot experience
    > & MUCHHH more...

    Located in the south border of Mexico with Guatemala and the pacific coast, a wonderful authentic area. The actual stay is in the main house for now and we will build new bamboo cabins in the land in the following months (also you are welcome to camp around, more immersive). There are few fruits trees pretty much everywhere but it was mostly a coffee farm that we want to convert from now to a food forest (agro-forestal system) & garden beds (food and medicinal).
    We are flexible, for one day/night of discovers, you are welcome as friends or visitor in our ecohostal for a bit longer then as volunteer we like for a minimum of a few weeks to fully live & share the experience with nature & us. We can also share different kinds of adventures, to waterfalls, rivers, beach, mangroves, volcano, staying with local families, yoga, meditation, ... Also, we are connected to different local people & organisations around the area working with kids, migrants or simply languages classes (for few months stays).

    As a non-profit organisation starting we can not afford to pay for the food for everyone so to balance we ask for a minimum of 15h/week to support the project (community food service available).

    You are also free to organise your own workshops or projects with our relations and us.
    If everything is going well after a while, we are open to longer stay, as part of the team.

    Peace and love from our team...
