Eco-Hostel/ “La Casita”


La Casita Complex (Casita means “the little house” in Spanish). Archetype of a sustainable Mayan house in El 20. It mixes Mayan traditional construction techniques and implements clean technologies. It is owned by the community and serves simultaneously as a community hub, complementary facilities for the school (cafeteria, toilets, working spaces), and as touristic infrastructure (accommodation).

This concept derives from two opportunity areas identified in the field; that of empowering their economic activity through community (eco) tourism, and that of generating infrastructure that is specifically designed to meet the climatologic conditions and cultural traditions of 20 Nov.
