Dear friends,

As some of you may already know, Aldea Luna is a Nature Preserve sustained and maintained by our family: Elizabeth, Martín, Matías and Anna.

It’s been nearly 15 years since we started this project, and we’ve kept it going with our daily work.

However, we have come to realize that the resources generated by tourism and the volunteering programs are insuficient to satisfy the requirements of the Nature Preserve on a day to day basis; and reflecting on the near future we want to use the Preserve to its fullest potential, creating new protectionist and research projects for the environement.

The highest expenses that we have every day revolve around the maintenance of several key aspects of our preserve:

  • Our means of transportation .
  • The road to the preserve.
  • The fences surrounding several áreas of forest in a recovery process
  • The wáter filtration system
  • The comunications system

It is necessary to improve and renew all these!!!

Now, thinking about the near future, we list all the new projects we plan to develop:

  • Firstly, the creation of several job opportunities for people in the surrounding area, to help with the hands-on process of developing these projects.
  • The clearing of new trekking paths for visitors, equiped with look-out points and resting areas.
  • To build a greenhouse for the native species of flora, to strengthen those areas of the forest that are in a recovery process.
  • To transform the preserve into a wildlife shelter for all endangered native species of fauna.
  • Studies on the birds, mammals, amphibians and ophidians that populate the yungas region, in order to help the general research done in the province.
  • Studies on the diverse species of fungi of the preserve.

All this projects are part of a very achievable dream, hopefully rather sooner than later, with your monetary aid.

We count on you.

Muchas Gracias!!!

“Amazing place, amazing people”
I really had good time in Aldea Luna and this mainly because of the people. Martin, Elizabeth, Matias and the little Anna are all the members of this family but everyone that goes there is part of the group! The place is amazing, in the middle of the jungle and so the nature is incredible.

“Great Place. Great Location. Great People.”
Aldea Luna was the highlight in my Yeartrip around Southamerika. I stayed there for only 3 weeks, because I was running out of time.
If not I would stay for 2 or 3 more weeks. The location is gorgeous, very very scenic.

“A Jewel in the Forest”
I was at Aldea Luna for 6 weeks. I arrived in april and I was coming from Bolivia with 2 friends of mine. After travelling for 2 months, our digestive situation was a bit delicated and I recommend Aldea Luna because it is a very healthy place.

“Everything You Could Ask For and More”
If only staying forever were an option. I was only able to stay at Aldea Luna for 2 weeks, which was far too short in my opinion. Aldea Luna is unlike any other place I’ve been to before or since. The owners, Elisabeth and Martin, are welcoming, generous and impressive people who have built an amazing sustainable vegetarian farm

“Very Homey and Loving Family! Would Return in a Heartbeat!”
While I was at Aldea Luna for over 5 weeks I had a great experience with the whole crew there and with all the travelers coming through. I also took Spanish classes while I was there and they were very helpful and I gained a lot of Spanish Speaking skills. Honestly while I was there I felt at home.

“Best Place in Argentina”
Aldea Luna ist THE place for volunteering. For my sister and me it was the perfect combination of working (4 hours a day), cooking and eating (best vegetarian food in my life) and living with a real authentic, friendly and lovely family. We improved our Spanish a lot, learned a lot while working, had great walks on the hiking trails

“Feeling at home, far from home!”
Whether you are travelling alone, with your friends, your partner or your kids, whether you speak fluently Spanish or you have no idea of this language, whether you are carnivore or vegan, 20 or 70, travelling for a month or for a life,
