  • Description


    We are a Mexican-Serbian couple based in Tulum, Mexico.

    We are blessed with looking after 5 acres of jungle.
    Our vision is to live sustainably and create a learning platform to empower people using permaculture, yoga, meditation, medicine work, etc.

    My wife, Maja is a certified yoga teacher and I am a gardener, we are currently developing the garden and animal space.

    We are powered by solar panels, and have a fresh source of water from a well.

    We are looking to host people to share ideas and help us get closer to our vision.

    We are based in the jungle between Playa Del Carmen (45 min) and Tulum 35 min).

    We are 6 kms away from the highway, as well as our closest town (Chemuyil) and the beach, (xcacel) which is one of the last untouched turtle reserves in the Mayan riviera.

    There are some magical cenotes around to go for a swim and explore.
