    Description

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Gladys- Gyannandi, I am a single mother and good modesty apart I was the pioneer in the concept Hostel, more than 30 years ago in the "Mayan Route", so I have had the great blessing of meeting many people from all over the world of which I feel very grateful and lucky.
    Now I am an older woman with 4 beautiful grandchildren and the forces have diminished despite the dreams and desires to continue creating and providing new spaces for tourists, "Travelers and citizens of the World" continues to keep day by day.
    The adventurous and creative spirit never dies.
    Today I find myself slowly worrying about creating a new space near the mountains of this beautiful "Magical Town", where you can stay and at the same time eat the same vegetables, fruits, etc. that the land where this lodging is located, be in contact with nature, providing space and time, here and now a healthier and more peaceful life for guests and volunteers in harmony with the universe.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here and now here, you can learn more about our Mexican culture, since I regularly share and spend time with my volunteers talking and smiling on different topics, making their stay more pleasant.

    I think that the main benefit of being here is to build a friendly and warm friendship, where we both learn from each other, and that this relationship lasts a long time, beyond your stay as a volunteer.
    Welcome friend!

    Help

    Welcome volunteers with true desires and positive attitude to support the different areas of the accommodation and thus achieve a pleasant stay in one of the most beautiful "Magical Towns" in Mexico.
    The place (OM Home) is located near the mountains in San Cristóbal, it is a country place, cozy, simple, pleasant, comfortable, in a healthy and quiet environment.

    Ideal for lovers of nature and meditative life or for those travelers who are already tired of party hostels, and want to give themselves a space and time to breathe ... calmer, exchanging their gentle, responsible and productive support in the different hosting tasks.

    The place has three bedrooms, living room, dining room, 3 bathrooms, equipped kitchen, a large garden, common areas, terrace, parking, WiFi, BBQ, TV, stereo, DVD, etc. type of help is basic about maintaining the accommodation, I would love to find a true "handy man or woman" with experience.

    The ideal volunteer for me is a single and responsible person, who helps me in the different tasks and activities that are required in the lodging, which is a country house, with a lot of garden, so your help would be precisely in caring, planting, cleaning the garden, repairs of the house, such as painting, electrical repairs or carpentry, cleaning and organization of the house.
    Part of the help is to provide service and attention to guests, such as information on the region / tours available.

    Secondly, I also need volunteers with experience in online booking and guest registration and online advertising.
    I prefer volunteers with a long stay (minimum 3 weeks).

    I hope someone who is open-minded, conscious, proactive, simple, attentive, intuitive, honest, responsible, out of dramas and complications, with a good sense of humor, respect, cooperation, gratitude, in harmony and coherence with him and the universe .
    Therefore, I wish to have a healthy and warm connection with the volunteers to share a good work experience and cultural exchange, thus achieving a pleasant and lasting friendship.
    We are here to learn together and share good experiences.

    Accommodation

    I offer a small room inside the house or if you like you can build a small rustic cabin or a bed in the bedroom, depending on availability.
    If you like camping, you can also bring your own tent and camp in the garden.
    The kitchen is for the use of guests and volunteers, where everyone cooks their own food.
     The organic market and shopping centers with fresh products are located very close to the lodging, about 10 minutes away.
    The bathrooms are with hot water (if you wish), all areas are shared, WI-FI, books, movies, games, music, living room, dining room, palapa, tv. garden, swimming pool (only filled by seasons), meat grill, barbecue area, large patio facing the mountains, camping area, parking, hammocks, etc.
    The laundry service is very economical.
    The hostel has a large patio, hammock, and soon we will build a large terrace to be able to contemplate even more the view of the mountains that surround the city.
     I am an instructor of Dynamic Meditations of Osho, which are eventually offered to guests and the general public, so volunteers can participate for free, since they are part of the staff of the accommodation.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The OM Home House is located 15-20 minutes from downtown. We have a really nice location, because although we are close to the mountain, it is not so far from the city center, in addition to urban transport they leave you right at the door of Casa Om. We are also very close (10 minutes) from the main market for fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as the Mollie's, Sams, Aurrera area, etc. and an area that shows a true sense of small town in the province of Mexico.
     There are restaurants, cafes, cinemas, the main theater of the city, banks, gas stations, Oxxos, hospitals and small shops very close.

    San Cristóbal is a very attractive and lively city and there is always something to do. There are several cinemas, art galleries and museums, as well as a very active nightlife.

    San Cristóbal is one of the magical towns of Mexico with a great colonial charm. The city has a very good location because we are on the Mayan route with all the ruins, also near the border with Guatemala and the Caribbean.

    We also offer tours to Palenque, Montebello Lake, Agua Azul and Chiflon waterfalls, Sumidero Canyon and indigenous peoples. We also offer connections to Guatemala with Lake Atitlan and Quetzaltenango.
    We also offer holistic massage sessions and Spanish classes.

    Sorry, my English is not good.
    Thanks for your time.
    Gratitude and blessings
