    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you can enjoy the benefit of living on the top of the mountain surrounded by pure nature with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean on the Oaxacan coast. Here you can take advantage of living in a place where you are connecting with the earth all the time, surrounded by trees, typical birds of the area, silence and tranquility but at the same time very close to the magical town of Mazunte. Like 10 minutes walking. Also here you can learn about bio-construction, work the land, learn to plant different foods and plants. We are always willing to teach Spanish.

Como 10 minutos caminando.

    Siempre estamos dispuesto a enseñar español.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have 2-3 comfortable spaces for volunteers. The space offers camping. You can bring your own tent or here we can also offer you one. The space is private, surrounded by trees. Our bathroom is a dry bathroom, this means that we do not use water to maintain it but sawdust that later becomes compost. We offer a small meal in the morning such as fruit or bread and coffee. And after 4 hours of help we offer a hearty lunch.

    Tenemos 2-3 espacios cómodos para los voluntariados. El espacio ofrece camping. Puedes traer tu propia carpa o aquí también te podemos ofrecer una. El espacio es privado, rodeado de arboles.

    Nuestro baño es un baño seco, esto significa que no usamos agua para mantenerlo sino aserrín que luego se convierte en composta.

    Ofrecemos una pequeña comida en la mañana como fruta o pancito y cafe. Y despues de la 4 horas de trabajo ofrecemos un almuerzo abundante.
