  • 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, etc.

    All of us are in times of change. We are offering more comfort in exchange for better results and more efficient experiences with our volunteers. That is why we now only accept volunteers through this platform and through confidential internal monitoring, which is carried out directly on site. The reviews we have, show that you can trust our methodology for organizing work, even more so, after and during pandemic seasons.

    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 will have the possibility of living in a vegan and experienced minimal-waste environment.

    If plants are one of your strengths, you will be able to learn more about the regional flora (herbology) and fauna.

    Tulum is for us a place where you can see the amenities that exist in the city, on the beach and much more.

    You will have the opportunity to get a unique certificate of participation.

    You can practice your Spanish too.

    And it's learning by doing while gardening, building respecting nature and collaborating.

  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for supportive, creative, conscious, good vibed people with proper initiatives and skills.
    It's important that you are happy working by yourself.

    Volunteering works:
    -Gardening
    -Pool-care
    -Property-care
    -Composting
    -Manoeuvres with materials made for exterior maintenance, like varnish, paint, PVC-glue, painting for metal.
    -Daily tasks (picking up leaves, property cleaning, irrigation...)
    -Grocery shopping by bike

    Important note!
    - If you feel unwell or sick and can't provide the labour, you will have to leave the place or pay for the accommodation. Food will not be provided if labour can't be given.
    We do not host people who:
    - Like the nightlife (partying, coming home later than 11 pm)
    - For women: using tampons or other one-way intimate products
    - Are not aware when shopping for plastic packed products and taking plastic bags.
    - Who are not willing to live 100% plant-based during their stay.
    - Who are afraid of dogs.
    Because if so, neither you nor we would feel comfortable...
    Thank you for your comprehension.

    We have a cabaña (Mayan cabin) with a couch- bed and it's also possible to hang a hammock.
    There is a rustic kitchen, a shower with only cold water and a new toilet.

    Since August 2020, we are also offering comfortable accommodation in a shared apartment, in which there is another bedroom. The kitchen, bathroom and common area are shared.

    Keeping all clean and tidy is a must!

    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.

    The day of your departure, we expect you to clean the place you used, the kitchen, shower, toilet and leave also the bedsheets clean.
