Our Community


The surrounding communities that we are part of and serve include Chacala - a small fishing village where Mar de Jade is located; Las Varas - a large farming town where the free clinic operated; and La Cuata - a farming village where the Organic Farm & the Trade School are located.

We are situated in Nayarit, a primarily rural and underdeveloped state in Mexico, with a high index of poverty and unemployment. Yet we have seen a profound willingness in the community members to work hard to improve their lives. There is a tremendous healing energy in this land, a natural beauty that is reflected in the spirit of it's people.
