  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple of travelers who want to share the opportunities that the road offers them. We will be two months in a set of cabins that we can share with you and our guests. In the area where we are there are no pipes or electrical wiring, so we operate with basic solar energy, we have a well and hermetic sewage system. We have a cat (Nabu), a cat (Monte) and a dog (Yin).

    The house is facing the sea and behind it there are kilometers of jungle. In front of us, the second largest barrier reef in the world extends. 20 min by car is the village of Mahahual with its beautiful bay where you will have restaurants, bars, ice cream shop, pharmacies, bakery, grocery stores, etc. At 48km you will find Xcalak, a fishing village between the sea and lagoons. and very close is Bacalar, Chacchoben and Chetumal.

    Somos una pareja de viajeras que quiere compartir las oportunidades que les va ofreciendo el camino. Estaremos dos meses en un conjunto de cabañas que podemos compartir contigo y nuestros huéspedes. En la zona en la que estamos no hay tuberías ni cableado eléctrico, así que funcionamos con energía solar básica, contamos con pozo y sistema hermético de aguas negras. Tenemos un gato (Nabu), una gata (Monte) y una perra (Yin).

    La casa está frente al mar y detrás de ella hay kilómetros de selva. Frente a nosotras se extiende la segunda barrera de coral mas grande del mundo. A 20min en carro está el pueblo de Mahahual con su hermosa bahía donde tendrás restaurantes, bares, heladería, farmacias, panadería, abarroterías, etc. A 48km encontrarás Xcalak, poblado de pescadores entre mar y lagunas y muy cerca está Bacalar, Chacchoben y Chetumal.

    All volunteers must clean the collective spaces and rooms. We have 2 studio apartments and a room with private bathroom. Our garden is very extensive so it will be a task that will take up much of the time and collect garbage on the beach. We also need to take care of the place in our absence and attend to guests who do not speak Spanish. Feed the pets.

    Tod@s l@s voluntari@s deben hacer la limpieza de los espacios colectivos y las habitaciones. Tenemos 2 apartamentos tipo estudio y una habitación con baño privado. Nuestro jardín es muy extenso por lo que será una labor que ocupará gran parte del tiempo y recoger basura en la playa. También necesitamos cuiden el lugar en nuestra ausencia y atiendan a los huéspedes que no hablen español. Alimentar y mimar a las mascotas.
