Hi, my name is Roci, I am a retired Pharmacist living here with my daughter and small dog Chester. I love living in Oaxaca and have many friends. With a strong knowledge of the area, I can offer great recommendations from where to find the best tortillas and tamales to which villages have the best handicrafts such as beautiful rugs and scarves. Our house is humble and the energy is good. Our people come as guests and leave as family.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live in a small neighborhood outside of the center with local access to culture, markets, hiking in the mountains, and horseback riding. Here you will be able to practice your Spanish and visit nearby artisan villages.
Here we are looking for help with keeping common spaces clean, artistic projects such as murals, and garden installations. If you have any building experience that is also great as there are always ongoing projects as we continue to grow.
The accommodation is simple but nice. A shared room with two bunks, a private bathroom, hot water, and access to a large shared outdoor kitchen with three burners, three sinks, a refrigerator, blender, kettle, etc. The terrace upstairs has 360-degree views of the mountains and is perfect for beautiful sunrise/sunsets and yoga.
There are many fresh markets nearby from which I will buy fruits and vegetables which you can prepare as you like in our beautiful outdoor kitchen.
The bus "terminal" is right out front with frequent trips into Centro (15-20 minutes, 8 pesos) or taxis which can take you direct to enjoy beautiful churches, artisanal shopping, restaurants and bars, as well as tours to popular sites of Mitla, Monte Alban, Tule, and access to minibuses and the ADO central station for your onward trips.
