    Description

    Hi! We are a french-Mexican family living in the maya jungle, next to the caribean sea. We've got a ranch in a beautiful place which is one of the only place in the world to have these water formations.
    We are bulding an ecological ranch to receive schools from Quintana Roo in order to raise children awareness of nature and a respectfull way of living.
    We've got goats, chickens of different breeds, rabbits, dogs and all the local fauna.
    We are searching volunteers to help us in this great adventure and that share our love for nature. Help includes attempt the animals twice a day, gardening and daily ranch work. The hours are generaly from 7 or 8'o clock in the morning to 1 or 2 pm, so 5 hours per day with 2days off per week (mostly saturday and sunday so that you can plan your activities).
    We love cooking and discover new dishes, so we prefer cooking and eating all together so that we can share this moment of the day.
    Please, be aware that we are living in the jungle, which means that there is a LOT of insects (spiders, mosquitos...), Scorpions, snakes etc... This is not a good place for you if you fear them.
    We've got two rooms at your disposition, so we can receive 4 people at the same time. THERE ISN'T ANY SIGNAL OR WIFI in the ranch, please think it twice!
    Hope to see you soon,
    Santiago and Mathilde :)

    Hola! Somos una familia franco-mexicana viviendo en la selva maya, al lado del caribe. Nuestro rancho se encuentra en la ruta de los cenotes, un lugar único.
    Estamos construyendo un rancho ecológico con fines educativos para recibir a las escuelas de Quintana Roo y así sensibilizar a los niños del cuidado de la naturaleza y de nuestro planeta.
    Tenemos cabras, gallinas de diferentes razas, conejos, perros, y toda la fauna local.
    Estamos buscando voluntarios que compartan nuestro amor por la naturaleza y que nos quieran ayudar a atender los animales, cuidar del huerto y ayudar con las tareas diarias de un rancho. Los horarios de trabajo son generalmente de las 7 o 8 de la mañana hasta la 1 o 2 de la tarde para cumplir 5horas por día, con 2dias de descanso per semana (generalmente sábado y domingo para que pueden planear sus actividades).
    Nos encanta cocinar y descubrir nuevos platos así que preferemos comer todos juntos para compartir este momento del día.
    Porfavor, toman en cuenta que vivimos en la selva, que está llena de bichos, serpientes y otros regalos de la naturaleza, no es un buen lugar para los tímidos.
    Tenemos dos habitaciones a su disposición así que podemos recibir 4 personas.
    NO TENEMOS SEÑAL O WIFI EN EL RANCHO!
    Esperamos verlos pronto!
    Santiago y Mathilde :)
