  • Description

    Description

    We are a boutique hostel situated on the Rio Buritaca, around 10 minutes by car from the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

    We need English teachers from November onward to help with community lessons that we offer here at the hostel.

    We also need help with our free yoga classes at the hostel - calling all yogis!

    We are looking for teachers to stay for a minimum of one month to teach children at a school in the Sierra Nevada de Nevada that do not have access to education due to their isolated location. The school is around a 90 minute walk up river into the mountains from our hostel, with spectacular views across the jungle and into the Sierra. This is a truly unique community project, so if you have artistic skills you'd like to share, or are a travelling teacher that believes you can impart some knowledge then we would love to hear from you!

    Our site is a stunning 2 hectare plot of land with a unique river beach and natural pool. We enjoy daily visits from humming birds and howler monkeys, the Caribbean is a 25 minute walk away, and there are thermal springs in the hills nearby. We also have an abundance of fruit trees!

    We are situated in Buritaca, sandwiched between Palomino and Parque Tyrona, both just 25 minutes away.

    Either a room of your own or a tent, all with beds.

    We have drinking water, showers and electricity and a working kitchen in a fully functioning hostel. We provide all meals and discounted drinks.

    For the teacher, your time would be split between living with us at the hostel and with a host couple closer to the school. They live in an eco retreat in the jungle set in a stunning nature reserve.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Palomino, Parque Tyrona, Minca, Santa Marta, Taganga and La Guajira desert are all perfect day off excursions. The collectivo bus that runs between Santa Marta and Palomino is 10 minutes from the property, we can also organise transport to take you to and from Buritaca.

    We are 25 minutes from the ocean and there are plenty of walks in the hills close by. Rancho Relaxo and Costeño Beach are our closest neighbours, both of which are great for any time off.
