Two axes :
Support to agroecological projects for farmers and women in Yalcobá (Mayan community).
The development of the eco-place carried by the association. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Leeftijd 18+
The 15 hectares of this eco-place located in the Yucatecan jungle are much more than that. You will find a wonderful ecological place where volunteers and tourists reconnect with nature to understand its cycles. 
The eco center is located in the heart of the Yucatecan jungle, surrounded by cenotes, in the mysterious atmosphere of the Mayan civilization. 

The place is part of the communal lands of the community and is totally integrated into its environment. 

One of the objectives of this place is to reach a relative autonomy (energetic, financial, food) and for that, 2 axes have been developed. 

- The development of an agroecological center, with the implementation of permaculture projects and the combination of different agroforestry knowledge. 
- The development of an eco-tourism project and the reception of guests from all over the world. The eco-tourism project is linked to the community to enhance the cultural and natural heritage of this territory. 

The idea is also to achieve a complete integration with the community and to develop projects with it and to integrate it in the development of this place. 

The eco-center offers everything you need to detach yourself from everyday life, to experience a completely new world, to find yourself and to be inspired and learn from the Mayan culture. 

Dagelijkse activiteiten

As a volunteer at the Eco-Center, you will have a wide range of tasks. Responsibilities are redistributed on a weekly basis. You can indicate your preferences if you are particularly interested in an area of work. 

Life in the eco-center is based on the principles of community living. 

The work day at the farm is about 5 and 7 hours. The sun rises early in Yucatán and so does the work day.

The actual working hours vary depending on the year and the weather conditions. 

In summer, it is best to work early in the morning and later in the afternoon to avoid the heat. 

A well-deserved breakfast at 7:30 am.

After breakfast, volunteers help water the plants and continue with their daily tasks. 

The volunteers work hand in hand with the eco-center staff. 

The afternoon work revolves around different projects: community work, arts/crafts, teaching, gardening, maintenance and construction projects... 

Possible tasks at this location can be:

- Eco-construction

- Landscaping of spaces

- Pruning 

- Maintenance and development of agricultural spaces 

- Development of traditional agricultural spaces  (milpa type and syntropic agriculture) 

- Take care of animals 

- Artistic development of the place 

- Development of the cenote 

- Inventory of fauna and flora 

- Establishment and development of links and projects with the community 

- Help to traditional farmers 

- Exploration of the territory and places of interest with the community 

- Development of communication of the place and the association

- Participation in the daily tasks of the eco-place 


The region is characterized by tropical forests filled of virgen cenotes. Here you can immerse yourself in the authentic rural life of Yucatan, where the clocks tick more slowly and the priorities are completely different than in modern cities.
You will learn to live the buen vivir Maya. 
The eco place is perfect to disconnect and practice activities like meditation or yoga. 

You will be able to explore the surrounding jungle and discover its wonders (cenotes, caves, fauna and flora etc.) 

The Yucatan Peninsula is also known as an important place for birdwatching. You will be able to observe a lot of unique bird species, many of them endemic to Mesoamerica. 
The relative isolation that this place offers is also ideal for inspiration and for any artistic creation (writing, painting, music etc.) and to observe the stars from the top of the tower, whitout any contamination. 

The nearest city, Valladolid, is located 40 minutes away. It is a typical manioc pueblo, with a very particular charm. 
Located in the center of the Yucatan Peninsula, you will be at a maximum of 2 hours from most of the places of interest in the region such as the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, the numerous Mayan cities (Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, Coba, Uxmal, Calakmul), lagoons etc.

Internet toegang
Beperkte toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten. Afhaling van de luchthaven is ook niet inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Cancun International Airport (CUN) in Cancun. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Mexico.
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Mexico biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Mexico dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Mexico.
