Un Destino No Turistico Eco Hostel & Camping
In this Destino No Turistico, you can take a solar shower, learn how to save energy and experience life in the countryside, participate in a workshop about sustainable life, permaculture, bio-building, composting toilets, etc or participate in a guided visit to know more about this project or who knows, maybe you will build a geodesic dome....everything is possible, but the best thing of all: go for a walk and chat with the local villagers. Anyway, you will enjoy a slow travel in Patagonia.
This new Eco Hostel has capacity only for 8 guests in: a twin-bed room, a spacious dormitory for 6 people and a kitchen available for travellers.
Eco-Kitchen: For saving energy and learning, we use the parabolic sun cooker, the solar oven and the hay box.
Eco-Toilets: We use composting toilets, solar showers and we reuse grey waters for irrigation.
We exist because there are travellers (no tourists ) who take the time to know the region and its people, those travellers who are concerned about the environment and their carbon footprint and who are interested in organic agriculture, renewable energies, solar cooking, bio-building, recycling, permaculture, etc
Cash only accepted as payment upon arrival
