The Experience

The volunteers at our place will be helping with the process of planting the indigenous Mayan corn organically and other small trees . We also build our own house and cabins with wood and organic material from the region, we use ancient Mayan techniques as well.. We elaborate hand made corn tortillas and they will be helping with that. they will also help with the animals and the kitchen... They will still have enough time to enjoy!!

Volunteering at the eco village was a lot of fun! I felt very welcome from the beginning and had a chance to learn a bit about the mayan culture and their way of living! Planting the eco village and taking care of animals were my tasks. The week I stayed was very good for me to reconnect to nature. I could have stayed longer for sure!! :)

It was fun taking care the eco village animals and learning about the native plants. The property, building, and experience is very unique. Victor and Lexie are very nice and easy to get along with. The beds/rooms are open air with a bug net covering the mattress. There is no signal or wifi and not much to do in the area, but it's relaxing and a great way to reconnect with nature. We would do it again!

I had a great time at the eco village! It was great to be out immersed in nature and there was just the right ratio of working. I would definitely come back again it was like entering a whole different world and I would recommend anyone to do it

Perfect get-away in the jungle, with helping to grow and maintain the farm. Planting different kinds of plants & nuts, and nurturing planted crops, feeding the animals, constructing new places, entertaining guests, etc... Very chill environment, the work almost doesn't feel like a job anymore. Ideal if you want to get back to basics and get to know some real local habits!
