Palapa Eco Project
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.
- Learn natural building & permaculture for the construction of the infrastructures, furnitures and gardening
- Build a community with the volunteers around an ecology project
- Develop different community projects for the locals around sports (e.g. football, basketball)
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 !!

About me... I'm a French 38yo with a Russian Family with 2 kids: 5 and 16yo. We started together in early 2022 and now my family is back to France. 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 !
