  • Description


    I am a single mother of an 8 year old boy who just happens to have down syndrome. I am originally from Mexico City, I lived in United States for many years where I graduated with a BA in International Relations and economics. I love people, traveling, reading, playing with my son and being often instead of doing. I love Bacalar with all my heart!!!! Right now I need someone to help take care of Noah, I am looking for a loving and fun person, preferably with experience working with children, Waldorf pedagogy and/or speech therapy. Also I am looking for an experienced gardener !!!!!. Please I need someone that is passionate about working with children with special needs.

    Endless possibilities here in this amazingly beautiful, mystic place. It has a powerful lagoon known for its 7 shades of blue and it is the home of the oldest form of organisms (stromatolites). Located among Mayan communities you will be part of Mayan culture, language and traditions. Bacalar’s history is unique in the Mayan world. I am a Spanish and English teacher also. The town is thriving with conscious visitors from all over the world who understand the importance of protecting the lagoon, culture and traditions. For all you water loving people sailing is a way of life here between fresh and salty waters of the Caribbean. We are only 20 mins from the border with Belize. I could go on and on.......

    At the moment my eco project at a temporary standstill, so I'm currently only looking for someone to take care of my son Noah. I would prefer someone with experience taking care of kids, and ideally someone that has worked with kids with special needs before. But if you're just passionate about kids, feel free to write me!

    I am building a small traveler’s welcoming lodge, Eco friendly, comfortable and affordable in the magical town of Bacalar, Quintana Roo, Mexico. I need help with gardening and construction using perma culture techniques and all natural and recycled materials. I also need someone to take care of my beautiful 8 year old Noah who happens to have Down syndrome. I will be around most of the time but I am looking for someone responsible who can play and keep an eye on Noah when I have to go buy stuff in town. Looking for people who would be willing to help 4 hours/day.

    At the moment I offer camping space with a tent and if available a cabin with an individual bed. I will provide the tent, bedding and all. I have a shower, bathroom and the kitchen is free to use! . I offer a lot of basics for cooking; stuff like oil, oats, Quinoa, spices, coffee and stuff like that. There are markets nearby, and you are free to use the kitchen as you please, and there'll always be room in the fridge for your food. I also have Wi-Fi.
