  • Descrição


    We just have started the building of the eco project early 2022. We have a 3500m2 land in El Transito, Nicaragua.
    We have created 3 wood buildings which have ocean views. The buildings have no walls to offer a different experience and to connect with nature. It’s an eco project focused on natural building and permaculture, 300 meters from an amazing uncrowded surf spot. We work towards a DIY philosophy and strive to balance work, play, personal time and communication - generating an overall community of well-being.

    Right now, the focus is to make the place functional: 2 Dry toilets, 2 urinals, 2 showers, 1 shared kitchen, urinal, fence improvement. Improve the current Palapas (Electricity, comfort...)

    About me... I'm a French 39, originally from Paris. I have been planning this project since 2016 and now the dream is becoming true. I see this project as a school, first for myself, then for all people. Join me in this crazy adventure !

    Please contact us by email or phone prior to your arrival. This is so we can check our schedule and for you to get all the term, conditions and important information !!
