Velicano Verde Tulum

There is a lot to to do in the garden and we'd love to go on with some permaculture structures (huertos) to grow our own vegetables and herbs. We have already started with some plants. But the area is quite huge, almost 2700 m2. So we are open to receive ideas, a hand, good vibes,... There is an incomplete house structure, with a large roof part, we would like to go picking it up in a rustic-artistic way, with materials of the region (wood, palm roofs, with branches, moorings, etc.). Inside the building there are some small trees that we want to leave there adapting the building according to its surroundings, at best in the form of a basic plan that we have. We want to see ourselves in the possibility of building some very original and artistic furniture in the area. Most of the time we are in need of people who like and know how to make art with cement, sand, metal rods and water. We want to make the area greener with plants and in a beautiful controlled detailed way. It is also important to build in the area a dry toilette, collection of rainwater and installation of solar panels or sustainable energy. We are constantly looking for reliable, experienced people, looking forward to working in this beautiful tropical area of the Mexican Caribbean. Being that the area is a tropical place where, in addition to rain, the sun also warms, we prefer to host people who also like to work in the rays of the sun, who are not afraid of being exposed to the sun, or who are not allergic to the sun and who like to be at sea during free time. We prefer to accommodate people who have their own tent, hammocks and their respective travel equipment. The area is surrounded by natural parks with easy access that can be reached with different transports. We offer the possibility of obtaining a certificate of permaculture for your future references. Smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages are not permitted. We don't want to host people who like nightlife. Coming home after 11 pm is not appreciated. We like cleanness and healthy living!! Every visitor or volunteer with us is responsible for their own insurance. We are not responsible for accidents.

We speak Spanish (MEX), German, English. Live also a vegan lifestyle and try to be as precise as possible, guided by a cero waste lifestyle. Lodging and the food we offer: Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week, three foods per day. We have room for you to hang your hammock under trees, for tents. Both with shared bathroom and open shower. Depending on availability, we have a palapa where is place to hang 3 to 4 hammocks. There is a room with a double bed, fan and air conditioning and shared bathroom, for which we charge some money in case you want to use it and if it is available. There is also an open bedroom, with mosquito net windows, space for hammock, with a single mattress, shared bathroom and depends also on availability. We do not use hot water for showers because temperatures are always above 24 degrees Celsius and the weather is tropical. Basic kitchen services (100% plant based) We like to offer the opportunity to people who want to change their diet, to enter into a vegan lifestyle. You can also learn to live in a basic Mexican-style way.

The hosts & employees were all kind people. They are truly devout vegans who strive to minimize their waste & impact on earth. They have a beautiful property with a lot of work/learning to do. If you like camping this is the place for you, as you will stay in a tent outside. Make sure your tent is waterproof as it rains very often & mine got soaked! The hosts make absolutely wonderful food & you will have plenty to eat.
...due to what I felt were uncomfortable and unthoughtful living conditions I left after 3 days. Also there was some "drama" going on between the hosts & other volunteers.
