  • Description


    We are part of the magic of Bacalar, one of Mexico’s famed Pueblos Magicos (Magic Towns). We are located on the shores of the Lagoon of 7 colors, known for its turquoise waters.
    Travellers from all around the world come here to have fun, adventures or just to chill out and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and breath-taking scenery. We aim to be more than a hostel: where friends become family, a place to come back to again and again.. a home.

  • Help


    We are looking for people that want to help with the day to day work of the hostel ; seldom reception , garden mantinance, painting and artwork, among other things.
    At this point what is most needed is some help with social networks plus some furniture restoration.
    We are located in one of the most incredible lagoons Quintana Roo , and we think that's a great motivation to work and live at ease.

    We are also interested in anyone who wants to give workshops or seminars include yoga, meditation , painting, acrobatics, and any other area that looks like that may be of interest for our guests

    Do not hesitate to write and show us your projects or proposals!
