  • Description


    Helo, I am Valerie, a Canadien girl from Quebec. I fell in love with Bacalar first time I came, 4 years ago. Now I am here, leaving my dreaming life.

    Bacalar is a small town with an amazing laguna of Seven Colors that is freshwater lagoon. It's a unique place 5 hours from Cancun and 30 minutes from Chetumal (border of Belize).

    I am starting a new project right in town with the lagoon view.

    I need help in many different area going from construction, carpenter, electricity, blacksmith, decoration, social network, art, painting, gardening and more.

    I just start a restaurant in the center, with Lagoon view. The place have a lot of potencial. I need help to improve and make this restaurant, THE place to be.

    Bacalar es un pintoresco pueblo mágico enclavado en el sureste de la península de Yucatán a 5 horas de Cancún y 30 minutos de Chetuma ( frontera con Belize)l. Es en el estado de Quintana Roo.

    Bacalar es un lugar lleno de naturaleza e historia, esta población es ideal para disfrutar de la versión mas tranquila y paradisiaca del Caribe Mexicano.

    Tengo un local muy amplio, con un gran patio. Con mucho potencial para realizar un restaurante con jardin.

    También estoy interesado en diseñar y construir una palapa en el techo y un jardin en la parte de atras. Hay espacios libres que deben ser acondicionados para cultivar. También es importante crear un compost para aprovechar los residuos orgánicos que genera el restaurante en su operación diaria.

    Necesito ayuda en construction, carpintero, herrero, pintura, jardin, social network y mas.

  • Accommodation


    Shared accommodation (3-4 persons) in the local with the lagune view, it's a busy and noisy street, right next to a cervezaria. The place can be noisy, but it's right in the center and you can see the sunrise from the room. **** With the actual situation of the Covid19, the street is realy quiet and peacefull. Only lunch included, but because the restaurant is close, you can use the kitchen and cook for yourself.

    No smoking inside
