Hello dear workaway guest. I’m Maria. I live in Bacalar. Me and my family have a project here. We manage the old grandparent house as a space for hosting people.
If you like cleaning and building text us for more details! We have space only for one person at time.
The last years we've been working to create a Bacalar’s microcosmos at our place. So come on, join us!
Our place is so quiet and in less than 5 minutes by walk you will be at the lagoon.

My twin sister and I are working on this project to transform our grandparents house in Bacalar into a lovely and eco friendly hostel. We can share with you the Mexican culture (as typical words in Spanish, Mexican recipes and history about Bacalar and Mexico).
The location of the property is great. Very close to the lagoon (less than 5 min by walk and we have a lovely view to the lagoon from the roof).
Dear workaway host,
We’re looking for creative people, who like to work! You’ll find a list below. If you have real experience and want to join us send me a message. Make sure to add your idea about what do you really can help to the project in your message request. Right now (February and March, we need ONE person for cleaning the rooms and laundry (we have our own procedures and now we’ve been using non-eco friendly products. If you have some recipes for ecofriendly products please share with us but be sure that everything looks clean)
- A constructor/carpenter! (We want to build bunk beds for the rooms, stairs and wood roads in the garden. It´s important to have on mind that we are in Mexico and is not even close to a development country, so we do not have so many tools and everything could be a challlenge find the way to build)
We really care about the cleanest of the house, that is why we are looking for someone who is well organised and can help us keeping the house as clean as possible.
We offer a single bed inside of the main house. we are working on build a room for the volunteers but it the mean time you can sleep in the living room.
