The Experience

Yamay es un nombre que significa “estar bien” en Mapuche. Un espacio dónde los visitantes nos ayuden a cuidar la naturaleza y los expertos invitados compartan sus conocimientos sobre todas aquellas técnicas que nos ayuden a cuidar a nuestro hábitat. Compartimos Yamay como un sitio donde el visitante se encuentre entre la comodidad que ofrecen los centros turísticos modernos y el ritmo pausado de las poblaciones rurales.

What an awesome few days in Yamay, and an amazing way to kick off our Argentinian adventure! We learned a lot about traditional mud building practices, spent some great quality time with the staff and other guests, and got to spend time in a beautiful and quiet place, a perfect opportunity to connect with nature and self-reflect! Highly recommended :) Marcelo and his team were incredibly generous, welcoming, and communicative.



Uma das melhores experiencias que vivi com o Wordpackers, um lugar lindo, ideal para quem quer se afastar um pouco do tumulto das grandes cidades e aprender mais sobre a vida no campo. Marcelo e Pipi são pessoas incríveis e o aprendizado dessa experiencia vai ficar em sua memória para sempre. Recomendo o lugar para todos que querem paz e aprender novas atividades.

Muito obrigado por tudo, espero um dia voltar.



Fue una experiencia excelente, la oportunidad de dejar atrás el ruido y la locura de la ciudad, y recordar que se puede vivir de otra manera. Tanto Marcelo como Juan Manuel (Pipi) me han tratado excelentemente bien y doy gracias por que me hayan recibido.



Yamay é um lugar único, incrível e especial.
Superou minhas expectativas em um nível altíssimo!
Todos me receberam muito bem e tiveram muita paciência ao me ensinarem as tarefas.
O terreno é muito bem preservado, em um pueblo de 200 habitantes onde eu rapidamente me senti em casa.
Sofri uma revolução interna, repensando o caminho que estou traçando e qual estilo de vida quero construir em alguns anos.
Pipi, o caseiro, é muito tranquilo e receptivo. Juan, construtor, é muito dedicado e paciente, e Marce é extremamente simpático e buena onda!
Aprendi muito e recomendo de olhos fechados!!



Yamay experiencia única y hermosa. La noche. El silencio las vacas y el sonido de los pajaritos al levantarse. El amor, las risas y el buen humor siempre presente.
