  • I went through a stage of very poor mental health and extended solo traveling seriously helped me to get past those times. I travelled for a year and a half by myself and it was during this time I fell in love with the hospitality industry. From being a guest and all the people I met along the way helping me so much I wanted to give back and help try to do the same for others as well as keep my own mental health up to where it had reached.
  • We aim to make sure everyone feels at home and can be who they are.
  • We hire locally and try to support the local ecosystem as much as possible

Impactful Planet

We aim to preserve the puerto escondido ecosystem

Our love for Puerto Escondido moves us to do our bit (and more) to support the local environment and organisations

  • Puerto Escondido is a small town with limited infrastructure but we try to recycle as much as possible to minimize our footprint
  • We are regularly involved in beach clean ups
  • We support an NGO ‘Save Puerto’ which looks to prevent big business from taking over the town and keep the town in the hands of small to medium size business owners
