  • Description


    We are two brothers: Nacho & Inés (36 and 33 years old), Nacho lives at the island all year and Inés comes and goes. We enjoy a lot sharing with other people, share experiences, language and food!. We have an eco-sustainable accommodation in the Delta island of Buenos Aires. The island is located within the Biosphere Reserve of the Parana Delta. The place is surrounded by a natural environment and native forest streams. In this project we attempt to maximally preserve the flora and fauna of the island. We are growing native plants and treeS. We´ve used as much of the natural resources of the area (mud, straw, cane and wood) and recycled (wood, veneer, plastic bottles) elements for construction. The idea is to experience / share a more natural life and in better harmony with the environment. This project began in November 2012 and now we have built: a main room, bathrooms, kitchen, a dock, walkways and 5 tents . The minimum stay in the island for volunteers is 3 weeks. We invite anyone who wants to participate in this wonderful experience!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love sharing culture and travel experiences. We had travel around Argentina, Southamerica and Europe so we have some knowledge and can recomend places. We speak english and some french. People usually want to learn or improve their Spanish and we love to help in this project. Everything that has to do with our eco project and the natural reserve were Yporá is, plants and animals, rowing and sailing, the people leaving in the island, history of the place etc we can share with volunteers. Is a very special and interesting place to know.
