  • Description



    Are you interested in being part of the very first phase of a creative project on a beach ? Come help us build our brand new tropical Art Residency in Chacahua !

    The place is a private land that is 500m long and 80m wide, with the beach on one side and the mangrove on the other side. A place of raw nature where peace can be found and where you can reconnect deeply with Mother Nature - Pachamama as we call her here.

    The place runs with solar panel and we also have a really good internet connection available if you need to use it !

    The land is located in Chacahua, about 5 km away from the centre which can be reached either by bike in 30min or by public transport. We also have a boat that we use to go to the land, fishing and just enjoying the beautiful lagoon and ocean.

    Las Lagunas de Chacahua is a stunning national park on the Oaxacan Coast. It’s full of nature, color and life. If you want to discover the immense natural beauty of the Oaxacan coast, you will find it here.

    In your free time there are lots of activities to do nearby, such as hiking, surfing, stargazing, fishing, yoga and we love to play volleyball during the sunset. Chacahua is a surfers' paradise. It’s also a great place to learn. I can also show you around our beautiful lagoon.

    Chacahua is a place of extraordinary natural beauty - you have to see it to believe it !


    Our mission is to build a creative centre where artists, researchers, and other creatives can come to heal, make, and take a break from their usual lifestyle and surroundings.

    We hope to become a part of both the landscape and local community, too. We’ll be working in partnership with the local people and our goal is to bring ART to Chacahua ! This would involve offering art classes to the community but also language lessons, computer literacy classes, and much more ...

    As part of our vision, we are also planning to live completely off the products of our land.


    - Volunteers that can work 5 hours a day, five days a week.

    - People with experience in building sustainable structures/ecohouses

    - People with permaculture experience who can make us a vegetable patch and plant crops, and that can supervise the watering of the plants.

    - People who are fluent in both Spanish and English is an advantage

    - People with artistic skills to create murals, paintings, sculptures ...

    - People that could teach the community about art, languages and more ...

    - Photographers and film makers to help us document the early days of our projects

    Right now, we will give the priority to people with building and permaculture skills but let us know your skills and together we can come up with a role that works for you!

    There is a minimum stay of 1 week if you want to come and volunteer. We are just starting this community, and aim to create a unique and magical place with an atmosphere of mutual care, respect and love.

    If you feel compelled to live deeply immersed in nature, are hands-on, and have any of the above skills, this could be the place for you!

    I provide great food for breakfast and dinner Monday to Friday. Saturday and Sunday everyone is off and I don't provide food but you can still use our beautiful kitchen just in front of the sea and enjoy the view of whales and dolphins jumping just few meters away from the shore.
    Mostly on weekends you will also able to enjoy unforgettable tours by boat in the lagoon and in the ocean where I can bring you fishing, swimming with dolphins, birds watching and many other beautiful adventure.
    We have bathroom and shower:)
    If you asking yourself how many volunteers we have at the moment we usually have between 3 to 12 volunteers and you will be working most of the time with another person.

    Thanks for your interest ! We are so excited to hear from you !


With Love
