  • Description


    We are an adventurous growing family, who love to travel, and we are building a tiny home village in the Jungle of the Riviera Maya. We have a 3 year old son, 10 month old daughter and I´m currently 5 months pregnant. We are a bilingual family that speak English and Spanish fluently and would love to learn another language.

    We are looking for extra hands around the house, help with the kids, and maybe help with our social media. We love visiting our neighborhood cenotes and beach Xcacel at least 2 to 3 times a week.

    We live in a small friendly community 15 min away from downtown Tulum and 30 min away from Playa del Carmen. Our community sits right across the highway from Xcacel, ranked top 5 virgin beaches in Mexico, its also a Sea Turtle Reserve.

Ranked number 2 is Bacalar, ranked number 6 Tulum, ranked number 13 Isla Mujeres, number 33 Valladolid, and number 37 Izamal. We live 5 min away from Akumal beach where you can swim with the turtles and view the beautiful marine life. To the north of Akumal you can also explore Yal-ku Lagoon where you can snorkel and enjoy viewing the colorful tropical fish and a monkey sanctuary and rescued animals reserve . We are also located 6 min away from Xel-Ha Park, and all of Xcaret parks are within driving distance. The Mayan culture is rich with millenial knowledge which can be seen in the ruines which are also within driving distance. Tulum is 12 miles away and Playa del Carmen is 27 miles away.
