    What else ...

    The site in the isthmus is located half way between the colonial cities of San Cristobal and Oaxaca. The bus station is just two blocks away. The place in Veracruz is in the cloud forest reserve, part of a community of like minded people, with an Ashram and a famous farm coop, near by.
