    Description

    We are an intentional community that strives to create a safe space where you can build real relationships whilst giving back through volunteering. Whether you are a long time traveler or a professional looking for a life change, we offer a place where you can be yourself and explore more of who you want to become. We enjoy spending time together through activities like game and movie nights, sharing meals, outings in the city, and more!

    Our guesthouse falls under the umbrella of a larger non-profit organization that includes: numerous online publications, a program focused on wholeness in health, a small cafe that uses locally grown Veracruz coffee, two camps, and professional networking and coaching resources for Latin American organizations. Between publishing magazines, supporting microenterprises, and networking with non-profits across Mexico and globally, we exist to help inspire people to use their skills to serve others. All the staff are followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ, and this is reflected in many of our events and work; but we welcome volunteers from all beliefs and over the years we have hosted a diverse array of backpackers from many different beliefs, backgrounds, and cultures. We look forward to getting to know you and your story!

    We have the following requirements for those interested in joining our community:
    Fully vaccinated with two or more doses
    Minimum stay of three (3) weeks
    Between 21-40 years of age
