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. We have work hard with some volunteers now and we are close to finish the second bungalow, some DIY projects ongoing always, Plants and trees are growing, so gardencare and landscaping work is needed. I am able to recieve volunteers in these first steps and give them a good lodging facility. We are located 1.5 km away from Lobitos Town (15min walk), 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 ecobungalow is solar powered and we get water from a local supplier by truck (no pipelines in the desert) we have open a small bar at Lobitos town where you can hang around to meet the locals and to make your expierence more suitable NO help is required at the bar, but playing music or doing some artwork is mostly welcome. We only work with people from local town, we really want to make them get involved with tourism as an opportunity to grow in their lifes (social and economic aspects). Myself, i am a experienced hotel manager with marketing and operations expertise. I am a natural surfer that loves nature contempletion.
