    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As Mexicans we are happy to help you work on your spanish. Staying with us is a great way to see small town life in Mexico. The beach here never has many people and includes a wonderful view of the mountains. Anyone interested in farming will learn lots here! We have been doing this for ten years- experimenting with many types of production and learning what works and what doesn't. Every day is sometning new!
