The Beehive is one of a growing number of social projects helping to bootstrap development in Sucre. The Beehive currently consists of a hostel, community center and cafe.
Beehive was established to empower local women by offering them training programs culminating in part-ownership of the Beehive business. Beehive also seeks to involve travelers in the process, and all profits go towards social projects.
