It helps to speak Spanish, but even if you don't, the building process is understandable with the tour that demonstrates how they make the wall panels, steps, windows, furniture etc. Cost was 120 pesos which supports the work they do. They also sell things made...More

We have visited this house made of plastic bottles. Nice and interesting place. We did not go inside. There were some people, but we probably was there at wrong time.

This house of recycled materials is conveniently located near the Falls. Trust me, this is awesome. It's Pinterest on steroids. All the ways the owner reuses every-day materials is amazing. Definitely worth a visit!
