    Description

    We are Jesica and Mauro, a couple that devised a sustainable tourism hotel, located in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay.
    Through our interest in taking care of the environment from our activity, we thought of a sustainable hotel which began to be built with the Earthship method with the Earthship Biotecture group headed by Michael Reynolds (known as the garbage warrior), part The building is still under construction with volunteers from different parts of the world.
    Our space has an orchard, a future bar / restaurant, in a plot of 2 hectares.
