  • Description


    My name is Rafael and i have been working hard into make my dream come true. My own small lodging facility that includes a small dryforest reforestation action. At the moment i am are very close to finish the main family bungalow and my trees and desert plants are growing, many ready for transplanting so a lot of gardening and landscaping work is needed. I am able to recieve volunteers in these first step and give them a good lodging facility. It is 1.5 km away from Lobitos Town, in front of Baterias Beach, desert lifestyle with Ocean view, perfect sunsets, uncrowded beach and waves everyday is the mayor attraction of the unique location. The ecobubgalow is solar powered and we get water from the local supplier, we also work only with local people from Lobitos town, so i get them involved into the touristic vision that i have. Myself, i am a experienced hotel manager with marketing and operations expertise. I am a natural surfer that loves nature contempletion.
