  • Description


    This is a small family business offering travelers a unique experience in nature on the beach and in the jungle. We provide a magical space to retreat from the world and reconnect with oneself. If you love nature and teamwork this is an opportunity to have an experience of a lifetime.

    We ask for 5 hours of your time five days a week. We start early to beat the heat, work as a team and divide the work based on strengths and learning wishes. At the end of the day we like to meditate, move and do evening activities such as yoga, dancing, campfire story sharing etc.

    We prefer a one minimum month commitment and are open to longer stays.

    We specifically need help with: social media and marketing, plumbing, electricity and carpentry.

    We are receiving a wonderful response from potential volunteers. Please consider that it may take several days for us to respond. Thanks for your comprehension!!

    We are in the stunning Sian Ka'an Biosphere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, south of Tulum on the road to Punta Allen. It is a relatively isolated area. There is Wi-Fi, but no cellphone reception. And public transportation is available once a day Monday through Saturday. Currently it costs 150 pesos per person.

    Staying with us gives you the opportunity to discover the amazing variety of experiences available in the Mayan Riviera: snorkeling, diving, kayaking, fly fishing, cenotes, ruins and the Mayan culture.
