  • Description


    We are Ivan and Angela, living with our two sons on four hectares of land in the coffee belt of Colombia.
    We are a happy and open minded family and our goal is to set up an Eco yoga and permaculture hostel or eco-village. We moved from Canada to Colombia in 2015 so our project is still young, but we have lots of food planted with many producing fruit trees, and many animals (goats, chickens, rabbits, dogs and cat).
    Ivan is Colombian and Angela from Canada, at home we speak mostly English.
    Our meals are very healthy, we eat meat two to three times per week, no gluten and a lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. We provide 3 meals per day; typically oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, varying big healthy lunches, and a lighter arepa meal for dinner. We also provide high speed internet, a comfortable bedroom, hot showers and laundry. We ask a small fee of 10,000COP per day to contribute to these extras.
