The Experience

El Zopilote is a permaculture farm / hostel at the same time. We always need help because the place is big and we are use to work with volunteers. We make sure you'll learn permaculture because we have a lot of work in the garden , we have many books and we are doing a daily permaculture tour.

My stay at El Zopilote was one of the best experiences in my life. I met a a lot of great people, the location is incredible and the work was not hard.
I would recommend a stay at El Zopilote to anyone who loves the outdoors and wants to learn about permaculture .

Wow, El Zopilote was my first experience as volunteer in WP community and i couldn't be better. It's an amazing and very peaceful place which has some magical magnetism that catches and envelops you and can feel a wonderful energy around. I found a family with my volunteer team and support and solidarity with the workers of the farm. Thanks to Danielle and Cristiano for the opportunity, so many experiences and a lot of learning make this one of the most incredible experiences of my life... 100% recommended to all WPcommunity.
