We live right in front of Mermejita beach. We love nature, cooking, gardening and yoga. We also need help with our garden which is always a work in progress.

    We like to share what we know. Both of us love cooking healthy food. Sometimes we share our yoga practice, but now with the baby is not always possible. Os can teach you about eco building, gardening and birds. Mar loves languages and is keen to teach Spanish.
