Tlayacapan is a small, magical town surrounded by mountains. Born and raised in San Francisco, I stumbled upon it 5 years ago and now live with my horse, 2 dogs, and almost 2 year old son in my home at the foot of el Tlatoani-a mountain with a pyramid at the top. I am working towards making my home a cafe/restaurant/music venue/campsite/after school spot, it's name is Momo-you can look it up in facebook...

Tlayacapan and its surrounding areas have a lot to offer both culturally and athletically. Besides rock climbing there are a bunch of walking/running/biking trails (I have a bike you can use). Additionally, we can speak in Spanish if you are looking to better your language skills. There are also quite a few people I know who teach interesting subjects such as Nahuatl, the indigenous language of our area, traditional medicine, horseback riding, painting, music lessons, etc. Oh, I play violin, so if you want to learn or want to jam with me that would be sweet.
I want to be rock climbing as often as I can but have not been able to because I have to stay at my cafe/home on weekends which is when tourists arrive and also when my friends go rock climbing. So, I am looking for someone who is interested in being my rock climbing buddy during the week. Obviously, you have to have experience and have your basic equipment. We would be going a few times during the week, and if tourists want to go on weekends, we can also take them.
I will check a bunch of things I need help with, however these are not priorities, they are just options if you are interested in helping out or making extra money.
Spanish and English
In terms of lodging, you would have a 4 person tent to yourself that you can put in the backyard or in the rooftop terrace. Another option is that you can stay in the living room/store, however I would need you to clean up every morning so that I can continue opening the living room/store to clients.
There are also great camping spots in the nearby mountains... and I'd be happy to show you/join you.
In terms of food, we can cook delicious nutritious and affordable meals.
Tlayacapan is less than 2 hours away from Mexico city with really accesible transportation so you could go to the city on your days off, or as I mentioned, there are plenty outdoor activities.
