    Description

    Mo (French Nomad traveling since 2011 - Wilderness Survival Instructor and Expedition Paramedic certified from England) and Angie (Polish Nomad- B.Sc Animal Husbandry Major in Horse care, riding and training) and their 2 little children were traveling with horses through Argentina since July 2018 to June 2020 as a part of their project to travel from Argentina to Mexico on horseback over the course of 10 years. We have recently bought land in Potrerillos, Mendoza province, where we plan to build an eco-friendly tourism site which will feature alternative cabanas, restaurant "Comidas del Mundo" and an adventure center with a variety of outdoor sports. We are seeking volunteers to help us with our project. Experience not required, but preferred.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Currently, we can provide a tent. However, volunteers may feel more comfortable bringing their own equipment. We recommend you bring your own sleeping bag preferably winter rated as it gets cold in the night. As we build cabanas, you can stay in one of them unless a client books it out.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Once a week we go to Mendoza city, where we can take you for the day, maybe even the night if we go with our motorhome so we can sleep the night (the motorhome has 3 bedrooms). Twice a week we go to Potrerillos lake, and every 2 weeks we go to Cacheuta Hot springs. If we have clients, the volunteers will accompany any of the tours from the adventure center.
