    We want to start different projects in order to teach people that a sustainable way of living is possible and necessary if we want to change the future.
    We want to live in a more sustainable and ecological way and teach what we have learned to whoever we can. Now we live in the Cuxtal reserve. Located in Merida Yucatán.
    In the surroundings there are several cenotes and very interesting archaeological sites that you can get to very quickly on your days off.

  • Accommodation


    We have a house very close to the project with a double bed and we have hammocks and there is space for tents. We are not smokers.
    We offer the 3 mostly vegetarian / vegan meals but we also eat meats from time to time if you are not vegetarian. On weekends if they have tours it would be great or if they stay home they would buy the things they need for their food since we will be moving forward or away from home. And sometimes we want to get some rest. We do not accept smokers and we do not smoke.

    Tenemos una casa muy cerca del proyecto con una cama matrimonial y Tenemos hamacas y hay espacio para casas de campaña. No somos fumadores.
    Ofrecemos comida mayormente vegetarianas/veganas pero también comemos carnes de vez en cuando si no eres vegetariano. Los fines de semana nos gusta que estén fuera en algún Tours o en Mérida o donde gusten ir . Nos gusta tener un poco de tiempo para nosotros y descansar un poco. No aceptamos fumadores y no fumamos. Todas las cosas extras que deseen comer deberán comprarlas .
