a sustainable house in the forest
La Colmena eco lodge was born in Ensenada with the intention of creating a beautiful space for travelers to meet and share adventure stories around the fire. And to get a good night’s rest, of course.
In 2017 I started to build. The house has grown with the support of amazing workers, family, friends and volunteers. And finally, after more than four years of construction, we are ready to welcome you!

concept & practice
The house has been built with the health of our planet in mind. Our focus has been on the reuse of disused materials that would not otherwise be recyclable.
