Our Office

We moved offices in 2020 and can now be found at Benito Juárez #38-D. It’s a bigger, shinier, and brighter space and we’re easy to find. We’re opposite the PC Doctor, next to Casa Rosa, and just by the taxi rank and square in Villa Obregón.

Click on the map opposite to see where we are, as well as highlighted attractions and places near our office.

Drop by and pay us a visit! We’re open from 9am to 2:30pm and 5pm – 7pm Monday to Friday, and 10am – 2pm on Saturday.

We’re always happy to help with any questions or queries so please feel free to contact us.

In the Office This Year

As always, we have various products and crafts on sale from both our travels around Mexico on the tours we offer, as well as from local producers near us in Melaque. This season we look forward to having some of our usual products, such as those from Cuzalapa, as well as some other new finds! These include:

– Greetings cards and postcards, designed and painted by Charlie

– Homemade jams and marmalades produced by the ladies at Mumalade, 2 local women from Barra trying to give back to their community

– Artisan wares from around the country that we’ve picked up along the way

– Cuzalapa Color de la Tierra products, including dark and medium roasted coffee, organic honey, and jamaica (subject to availability)

– Organic honey from a local producer based just outside of La Huerta

– Hand-made eco bags by a local seamstress

– Original design and branded t-shirts

– Locally produced seasonal food products from other local businesses

And much more as and when we pick it up!
