  • Description


    Hi everybody! Our little family is running a small hostel project in La Paz México, where we love to meet people from all over the world and show them the great natural and cultural attractions that our city has to offer. Our project is very small, we started with space for just 12 people but want to create a good place, comfortable and affordable for travelers to meet Mexican culture in Baja. Little by little, we are adding new common areas so our guests can share great moments and travel experiences with others. All new ideas are welcome!

    I am Sergio, I'm a tour guide and naturalist, have a degree in tourism and work with snorkeling, sea kayaking, whale watching, and camping expeditions. I love spending time outdoors and explore new places. my goal is to find better ways to enjoy nature with the minimum impact possible so more people can learn about its beauty and importance. I don't own a tour company but I can help you to enjoy the area with lots of advice.

    Now we have a great team of people helping us with this project, you will meet Cecy and Juan and the rest of the staff. They are a very important part of our team as they will be working a lot with our volunteers, join this team and be part of the family

    We would love to see our project grow with your help!

    IMPORTANT NOTE: We offer accommodation in our mix dorms, the same our paying guests use, we do not accept couples as we can not offer private accommodation or days off that match.
