The 'Nueva Vida' community is one of several small villages to the south of San Lucas. Most parents work in the surrounding coffee plantations

Many workers are paid three months on, then three months off. That way the plantations don't have to pay minimum wage or health insurance.

They are fortunate in having a good junior high school there. It uses the primary school premises in the afternoons.
