  • Description


    Hello travelers! we are Carlos and Anie, we live in the community called Xoy, in the state of Yucatan, in Mexico. Since 4 years ago we created the project which is a place dedicated to the care of the earth and ourselves. In all this time we have been able to build a space where in addition to learning and sharing your skills, you will have the opportunity to rest in the midst of a natural environment and full of culture.

    All the constructions that we have carried out have been with bioconstruction, using materials of the region and adapted to the climatic conditions of the place. We are in a tropical zone and the cabins are the best to rest, during the day are fresh and at night protect from the cold. We have hammocks and we have beds, you decide where to sleep. We offer breakfast. If you want to prepare your food for lunch and dinner we offer our kitchen. Sometimes we have ingredients of our crops, depend of the season.
