  • Description


    Welcome to Heroíca Puebla de Zaragoza!

    We're looking for a motivated workawayer to help us out with our guesthouse.

    It started out as the house got a ittle too big and lonely when the kids moved out it and has developed into a great project. We now run apartments which are very popular among both Mexican and international guests. The more guests we receive, the harder it all gets to manage.

    We actually do marketing and small documentaries and our guesthouse has grown a little too fast making the work somewhat overwhelming. We also do charity work in local communities as it is our passion and mission to help those with less resources.

    Your help will be very appreciated so we can keep working on all of the above.

    We look forward to hearing from you,

    Martha & Jorge

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love exchange with foreigners, hearing their stories and going on adventures together. If we organize trips for our guests you will most likely be able to join. We will happily practice Spanish with you and show you Puebla and its surroundings.

    Puebla is a beautiful city with a population of about 1,5 million. We were named a World Heritage Sight in 1987 and attractions include downtown Puebla with colonial era arquitecture. Go to Cholula to see pyramids, try the world famous mole poblano and eat a cemita in a mercado.
    Being the home of largue automobile plants, Puebla has attracted many international expats and big universities.
