  • Description

    Description

    A green oasis, ancient, spacious, preserved place, inside a small city which is in fast development.

    To keep the place magic and in harmony, we are looking for volunteers who would like to take care and do gardening, pool care, maintenance of the property, including apartment cleaning (3 apartments), grocery shopping, some woodwork, decoration,...

    You will have a rustic kitchen and a Mayan cabin to sleep in, food ingredients will be provided, sometimes also cocked food (if the hosts have enough time to prepare), two to three meals per day, depending on the contribution.
    The use of chemical products is not allowed to use, as our plants drink the "waste"-water!
    This means also that soap, toothpaste, the shampoo you bring needs to be biodegradable. And the containers need to be recyclable or taken with you when empty.

    Important: no alcohol consumption or other drugs, non-smoker only, no partying.

    We offer a minimal-waste and plant-based holistic space, where animals, humans and nature are treated fairly with equal values. For nature lovers, animal lovers, health lovers.
    We are a conscious living couple living a vegan and minimal-waste lifestyle for many years.
    Besides speaking Spanish, we love to communicate in German. We also speak English. However, we are open to other languages as well. We love to read books in German and are happy to collect and exchange books that you no longer use.

    Our vegan-oasis is a place where no animal products are allowed to be entered, neither as food nor as cosmetic products!

    Each volunteer is responsible for their own safety. We are not responsible for accidents, robberies or diseases.

    *️️️️️️️️️Check-in: from 11 am to 4 pm (Monday to Wednesday)
    *️️️️️️️️️Check-out: from 9 am to 11 am (Wednesday to Friday)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You get the chance to learn about healthy vegan and zero waste living, local healthy food and superfoods and local medical plants (herbology).
    You have the opportunity to get a unique certificate of participation.
    Since most of the time we speak Spanish, you can practice your Spanish too.
    And it's learning by doing while gardening, building respecting nature and collaborating.

    Accommodation

    We have a cabaña (Mayan cabin) with a double bed and also possible to hang a hammock.
    There is a rustic kitchen, a shower with only cold water and a compost toilet. The latter is in the process of remodelling because we are turning it into a conventional toilet. Keeping all clean and tidy is a must!

    Usually, you prepare your own breakfast (we provide the ingredients). For lunch, we provide the ingredients as well. If we have enough time we will cook for you. Meals are provided only during workdays.

    There is a small kitchen which you can use during your stay. It is in your responsibility to keep it always clean and cleaned up properly. If dishes break, please let us know and we ask kindly to replace them.

    Electricity in Tulum is very expensive. We ask you kindly to always turn off lights and fan, when not needed.
