  • Description


    We have a farm with orchard and some gardens on a big 3 hectares property off grid 12km in the jungle away from any other neighbors.
    We are still in the process to open up, so right now we are building 2 new cabins.
    We are in the jungle, off the grid, close to the village of Francisco Uh May.
    There is lots of fruit trees, chickens and cabins to receive guests. There is also a community kitchen that serve as restaurant.

    By staying with us, the workawayers with be immerse in Spanish language, learn to build palapas like the locals, learn how to take care of chickens, plant fruit trees, keep the yard clean, learn some Mexican recipe.
    We are also of the grid fully powered on solar energy, so there is alot to learn on how this work.
    Masonry and carpentry are also skills you will learn.

    The help the workawayers are expected to give is varied.
    Cleaning the jungle with machetes is one
    Right now in the next few months, we are building 2 more palapas(cabins) and hoping to plant decorative plants, work on the pool area, maintain a garden and plant some new trees.
    We plan to have the workawayers cook there own food with the food supplied, and we are planning to share some meals together.
