  • Descrição


    Our project is the meeting point between the souls of Mazunte and the ones of La Ventanilla. Anyone who feels called to share a family moment meets here. You will learn a lot about the area we reside in of Mazunte from those who call this place home. It’s very important for us to preserve the integrity of La Ventanilla, a beautiful mangrove and ecotourism zone.

    Recently our work has shifted. There was a recent hurricane that damaged wooden structures and felled trees all around the property. The flooding, which receded after a few days, has left a mess behind. Right now, our biggest priority is cleaning/woodwork.

    We have had to put on hold our production of Kombucha, but I have years of experience and if we are able to get back on track in a timely way, you could have the opportunity to learn the art of Kombucha.

    From some misunderstandings of the past, we ask couples and those under 25, we just ask for a quick video call :)

    Your living situation is RUSTIC. While this is typical of Mazunte understand that we are close to nature- which means showering and bathrooms involve operating a well and hauling water. On top of this, the hurricane has caused some immediate damages to the rooms. They will be prepared in anticipation for your arrival of course but please be ready to roll up your sleeves with a do-it-yourself-attitude.

    This is a Hostel that also rents room- we need a weeks commitment, otherwise you can reach out and perhaps rent a room for some days here or in Mazunte before committing. Any less than a week, and it doesn't help our operation. We've also had people volunteer for a little time and stay months ;)

    We are a hostel, a vibrant community in the beautiful Ventanilla, Oaxaca harnessing our love for the land and each other. Our Palapa acts as a hub for creators and dreamers to connect.
 The hostel is great for people who travel through volunteerism or are looking to stay on the coast of Oaxaca. We’re looking for artists, musicians, handymen, creative people, chefs and amazing souls alike!

    We are not so much a party hostel, however we have music events on Saturdays and a few of the residences are musicians. So music lovers are very welcome, if you don’t like music being played the majority of the time this place may not be for you.
