We are located 15 minutes from Concepción de Buenos Aires, a small and adorable village, in the middle of the Sierra del Tigre, Jalisco, Mexico (around two hours from Guadalajara City).
    We offer various services to the public who visit us, such as Restaurant, Bar, Climbing wall, a circuit of three zip lines, Interactive Farm, Tortilla, cheese, and abobe workshops, SPA, children's area, horseback riding, bow and arrow workshop and soon Mini golf ( volunteers are helping us to build it ) which you are welcome to use. We also have either cabins or a camping area. We only have electricity and wi-fi in common areas, no cellphone signal, sometimes with AT&T company you get lucky.
    The cabins have natural light such as candles and a fireplace, to have a different experience and to be able to disconnect from the routine and connect with nature.
    The spirit of freedom, care, and love that is felt in our park is unmatched, unique, for sure you will feel at home or even better. Our staff is made up of 4 natives of the town of Concepción de Buenos Aires, a town known for its friendly people, Rob a native of Guadalajara and Brandy from Argentina.
