    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are working with permaculture. This means we try to be the most resilient and self-sufficient has possible. We grow the most possible food we can in a responsible, biological and respectful way. We have our own water. We built the house manly with natural and local materials etc... There is a lot to learn about these techniques. The workers are only locals as well. If you are interested you can work with them to get to know them and practice Spanish. And finally we are close to indigenous tribes and we still have some remains of their ancestral civilization even on the very land the house is built on.

  • Help


    Only maintenance and routine, cooking, care of the garden, cleaning etc can get someone busy. We will also need a website and activity on social media. You can also help and share ideas in construction and design. Any interesting projects can be developed if it's possible in terms of logistics and budget.

    The only problem is that we have only very limited access to internet. There is almost no signal and the satellite connection for the wifi is limited and expensive. But we can talk about it and find out some type of "deal". But except that, ones the construction will be finished it will be a very peaceful, quiet and pretty comfortable place. It should be a very good environment to work.
