Six years ago our family of four moved to Mexico to follow our dreams of a simpler life. We purchased 4 rental apartments in the Akumal Jungle, one of which we lived in for the first year. Since then we have expanded to 10 rental units, a main house/lodge/reception area and finally (!) this year a new house of our own. It has taken years of hard work and determination to get to where we now are and we realize the life we built has become anything but "simple".
We have taken many volunteers over the years to assist with the running of our hotel but, with the current world situation, our property is for the most part closed. We are currently looking for an English speaking teacher to tutor our 10 year old. You must have some teaching/childcare experience. We are looking for someone immediately to come and stay for 3 months.
At the moment we are a safe haven for travelers looking to relax for a while.
Room for 2 with king size bed (or 2 single beds), bathroom, sitting area and use of kitchen. There is airco and WIFI.
It is a 1 km walk to the highway, where you can take the local transportation as far north as Playa del Carmen or south to Tulum for less than 3 USD per person. You will have use of a car 1 day per week to do your shopping/exploring. You will have a grocery allowance and can buy and cook your own food.
There is so much to do and see within the Mayan Riviera and we are located in the heart of it...Beautiful Beaches, Underground Rivers, Mayan Ruins.
The beaches to the north and south are endangered Green Sea Turtle habitat. The local NGO educates residents and visitors about habitat preservation. Yal Ku Lagoon, to the north is a haven for snorkeling; an area where fresh water percolating through ground limestone meets salt water and creates nutrient-rich habitat for marine life.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
We also work online and are happy to have digital nomads. Our connection is good, we rarely have down time but it does occasionally happen due to power outage or high volume times. Therefore, this situation mostly works best for people who can work without specific working hours. For example, if you need to be on video conference every day at designated hours this may cause an issue. However, if you just need to get in a few hours of work per day at whatever time, it will be well suited for you. We are happy to make arrangements of reduced price rental for a few hours of help or free lodging for more dedicated help. We can also offer online projects depending upon your qualifications.
We can park campers and still offer lodging. We do not have hook-ups for campers (electric,water)
5 hours per day - 20 hours per week
