    Description

    Hi, my name is Brenda. I am 35 years old and I love to travel and make new friends. My family and I have a project to build cabins for rent in a land near the Nevado de Colima volcano. We want to create an eco-tourism space where families can stay in the cabins but can also camp. We need help to enable the path, gardening, painting, decoration and some other field activities to leave the space pleasant. We can offer you accommodation and free time so you can get to know the surroundings of Ciudad Guzmán, Jalisco. Just for be clear, we dont include the food.

    The ecotourism project starts in October. We need help to clear the land, enable roads, gardening, decoration and generation of many ideas to make the space pleasant. The land is very close to the Nevado de Colima volcano. We would like families to spend a pleasant weekend in the cabins or in tents. Therefore we must enable the land to be safe, comfortable and with unique details.
