    Hey, My name is Jay. I am currently building a homestead/campground in the beautiful Mazunte, Oaxaca, Mexico. The objective is to creative a self-sustainable (or as close as possible!) eco-farmstay and Hostal where people can live together and share a different lifestyle.

    We are using solar power for the whole property still and we try to use all waters more than once using natural filtration system.

    Our home is located on a quiet street about 10min. walk from Mazunte and less than 20 min from the beaches. We bought, a friend and I the 2000 m2 property in 2020. Since then we have been working by hand to create this little place to live our life in a way that is more suited for our values.

    We have a dry toilet, a beautiful shower and a well equipped kitchen for everyone to share their favourite recipes.
    We offer accomodations in a tent in exchange for about 15h of work (per week). We work on week days in the morning only (around 9 to 12) because the sun gets quite hot after and its not enjoyable to work in the heat and weekends we are off, we only ask everyone to clean after themselves so that the place remain enjoyable for everyone at all time.

    Lots of the tasks are to maintain the spaces clean and also develop the place and do some small projects here and there. We also have a small campground that we rent at a decent price during the dry season (nov-may)

    ***if you are massage therapist or tattoo artist and would like to exchange accommodations for sessions let us know about it!! Also if you have a specific skill you think could be traded, let us hear it!

  • Alojamiento


    We still have no housing built so we will offer a tent (or a spot to put your own), sheets and pillows, and of course access to the shower and dry toilet.

    We have sufficient solar power to charge your devices.

    Food is not included BUT when we cook we usually make enough for everyone. Food is always better shared anyways.
    Drinking water is included, make sure you keep hydrated.
    **Little fact on drinking water in Mexico, most drinking water contains NO minerals so it is important to either get your source of Calcium, Sodium, Potassium and Magnesium in your food or drink electrolytes once in a while.**

    We have wifi but its not starlink so sometimes connection is slow or put of service (this is for all of Mazunte). On the other hand, There are many places in town to get starlink if the signal isnt strong enough here.
