    Hi there! We are a community living at the magnificent Selva Lacandona in Palenque, Chiapas. Our family is composed by friends and people of other communities and we all together run an Eco Project in the jungle.

    Our family have great love and respect for our mother nature. We are taking care of a conservation area of 41 hectares along the jungle which is filled with plants and trees, springs, creeks and all kind of wildlife. On one side of the jungle, there is an area where fruits and vegetables have been planted and are growing. Besides, there is another area with ponds full of fishes, also an area with domestic fowl, such as chickens, and turkeys. Apart from that, there is a camping area, a kitchen and dining room. We are currently building new cabins around the place for national and international tourism.

    Our vision is to be 90% self-sustainable, preservate nature and encourage others to learn and practice sustainable living, Adittionally, promoting ecotourism and eco-friendly travel.

    Seeking for volunteers throughout the year! and each season has it's own charm!

    ¡Hola! Somos una comunidad que vive en la magnífica Selva Lacandona en Palenque, Chiapas. Nuestra familia está compuesta por amigos y personas de otras comunidades y todos juntos llevamos a cabo un Eco Proyecto dentro de la selva.

    Nuestra familia tiene un gran amor y respeto por la conservación de la naturaleza. Estamos cuidando un área de conservación de 41 hectáreas a lo largo de la selva que está llena de plantas y árboles, manantiales, arroyos y todo tipo de vida silvestre. En un lado de la selva hay un área donde se cultivan frutas y verduras. Al lado hay otra zona con estanques llenos de peces. Otra área de aves domésticas, como gallinas y pavos. Aparte de eso está la zona para acampar, la cocina y el comedor. Actualmente estamos construyendo nuevos cabañas alrededor del área para el turismo nacional e internacional.

    Nuestra visión es ser 90% autosustentables, preservar la naturaleza y alentar a otros a aprender y practicar una vida sustentable, además de promover el ecoturismo y los viajes con conciencia social.

    Estamos recibiendo voluntarios todo el año! cada temporada tiene su encanto :)
