  • Description


    This a project aimed at people who want to leave the political and economic system (the matrix), our vision is to make a community where people who do not feel part of the reality imposed by society can come and discover a new way of living, always aimed at sustainability and harmony with nature.
    Our idea with volunteers is to share knowledge, awareness and make them part of our family community.
    In our project we have chickens, sheep, pigs among other animals, the tasks are varied from watering the plants, taking care of animals, planting, building with natural materials, collecting wood, cooking among others.

    Our place is in a privileged place since it is close to the ring of cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula, it is a place with magic and we are on top of one of the wonders of the world, the largest underground river system in the world and the cenotes. They allow us to see a little of this wonder and let us see a part of the history of the world.
