Scroll Down to Know About Our History

Why MAPU ?

It is a word from the native people, and it means "LAND." For us, it's not just any earth, but a little piece of paradise. A place where we try to disconnect from something we've learned so far, living in cities. Here we try to get connected with a simpler relationship with life. The quality of food, respect for the body and sleep are important attitudes for our well-being. Time is precious and important. Cycles are also part of our daily life. For us it's a place we want to protect and care for; by living life as sustainable as possible. We are more conscious about what we eat and where our food comes from. Finding balance between BODY, MIND & SOUL is the real success in life.

Our History

We wanted to reconnect. We wanted to change from a huge and busy city and find a healthy balance. Then we found this piece of land. Where clock runs differently. Where difficulties give us strength. We arrived here in 2014 and since then we've been working on the project, upgrading infrastructure, building our cabins, planting in our organic garden and learning from the land. Since the beginning things have been happening naturally in creating this landmark and we're able to share lots of stories and knowledge with people who seek this same connection. The soul of our project is to connect people from all over the world with the same intention: exchange knowledge and experiences. Living here means to immerse ourselves in this soil and raise our children with the values of MAPU, finding inspiration in Thoreau's words in Walden: 'Simplify, simplify.' In search of a more authentic life in harmony with nature, we have found in MAPU the perfect refuge to cultivate a deep connection with the world around us, learning to respect TIME and NATURE".

Our Mission

Being able to keep protecting and living with a better meaning of life. Applying simple steps, learning from local people and also sharing with local people some other possibilities. Showing them we're all connected and that we must keep taking care of this place.
