First stage is San José Tzal, close to Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico. San José Tzal is a small village 12 miles from Mérida, 35 minutes by public transport (every 15 minutes).


San José Tzal is located 12 miles from Mérida, 40 miles from the ocean, the closest airport is in Mérida, and has a good location as being a base for one-day trips to cenotes, pyramids, and to the everyday programs in Mérida.

The quinta has 6 family rooms all with private bathroom, a spacious dining room, a big living room, a shared kitchen, a small pool and a huge terrain around the house. You don’t have to buy towels or sheets after arriving in the house, the fridge will work and you will have equipment for cooking and cleaning. The closest football pitch is 3 blocks from the house, next to the basketball field. There are some activities for children in the community house of the village too.

In the quinta you can have  all basic things included, like beds, sheets, shelves in the rooms, closets, towels, laundry basket, toothbrush holder, toilet paper, soap in the bathroom, plates, flatware, dishes, sponge, washing liquid, coffee machine, fridge, stove in the kitchen, a fan in your room, dining table, chairs and cleaning equipment.

to come to San José Tzal for a while?

Because of like-minded families, company, and programs for both children and families in a self-directed way, and because of Mexico. Exploring, learning, cooking having rest or simply being together.

We want to build up a self-directed community, so all the opportunities are always changing depending on the participants.

In the plan children can take part of different workshops like music, art, science, weekly outdoor activities, board games, homeschooler meetups, going together into museums, exploring the city, language exchange, communication games, cooking together and following a curriculum once a week if wanted (vision: with worldwide connection via internet), participate in local activities. Depending on needs and local conditions and of course on you and your children.


can you get here?

Anything that we make together.

To be more precise, some of the planned activities are listed below.


Board games: at least once in a week together, and as often as you want anyway. Board games and homemade board games. Did you try Alhambra? Do you like snakes and ladders? We could play ancient games, very modern ones, new games, mathematics or reading games, memory games or even self-developed ones.

Crafting activities: Anything the kids want to try: beading, sewing, painting,  papier mache, crafting with plasticine, montage etc. Would you like to show us a new technic? 

 Outdoor activities for children: playing some well-known plays like tig, hide and seek, darts, we might try traditional Mexican games, games of your country of origin. What was the favorite in your childhood? What is the favorite of your children? Show it for everybody here!

Weekly academic topic: One academic topic for a week with different activities. Here are some of the topics we made earlier: prehistoric men, equinox, languages – differences and similarities. Would you like to teach us a topic?

Cooking together: would be great once in one or two weeks: preparing your favorite food together or some local food or the food of your country of origin or one of a chosen country. Once we have made szilvás gombóc together with local children. Can you teach one of your favorite foods? 

Language exchange: learning some basics from each other, basic Spanish for nonspeakers, maybe some Mayan words? Can you introduce your native language? Just to teach how to say Good Morning, my name, and maybe count up to ten.
