    Description

    We are located on the North Pacific cost of Mexico on the state of Sinaloa. The closest city is Mazatlan (35min). And the closest village is Stone Island (7km).
    Actually we are working just 2 friends on the land, we are lovers of mother nature.
    This is a rural and remote place out of Mazatlan city.
    We are not living there at the moment, but we have built a tiny house which we rent and two bell tents for weekends rental. There is a big space for camping and we have shawers and compost toilets.
    My friend Rogelio lives on the closest town called Isla de la Piedra 7km away. There are local markets, restaurants, etc..


    Volunteering is a way to learn and live in a natural and rural environment, while you know another perspective of life. You can help on the organic garden and other projects.
