  • Description


    Hey everyone, I m Florian from Belgium. Some friends of mine originaly from different parts of Mexico got a land to devellop a sustainable community around here, a wonderfull area in the lower part of the mountain (altitude +350m), 15min North of Tapachula. I am personally in the area of Tapachula since 3 years but since more than a year in this wild area, trying to help with non-profit work (managing small projects of sustainable development, design, bioconstruction, agroecology, cooking, ...).
    An amazing human experience in nature, in this old coffee farm, with bananas, papayas, cacao, lemons, rambutan,.. waterfalls, river, trees, wild animals and most importantly peace 🙏🌱❤ We are also connected to local people and some organisations around that are working with kids, migrants or simply languages classes, so here we are to get some help from you in the way you feel...
    Welcome here with us in our incredible wild (new) ranch in the south border of Mexico with Guatemala, a wonderful authentic area. We just got a new land that have waterfalls and a big house, so the stay is in that house now and we will build new bamboo cabins in the land. There are few fruits trees pretty much everywhere but it was mostly a coffee farm that we want to convert from now to a food forest and add garden beds (food and medicinal).
    For conditions, we are flexible, to stay as humanly as possible and open to everyone's budget limitations. One day/night you are welcome as friends otherwise we ask minimum a week to fully live & share the experience with nature and us around here. We can share different kinds of adventures, to waterfalls, rivers, beach, mangroves, volcano, staying with local families, yoga, meditation, ...
    The stay with us can be :
    > donation for food from 15$us/person/week and just help in the basic tasks of living (cook/clean) so you are pretty free all the time OR
    > donation for food without help asked from 35$us/person/week),
    > as volunteers for few hours a day of work
    You are also free to organise your own workshops or projects with our relations and us.
    If everything is gong well after a while, we are open to longer stay, as part of the team.
