Hey Workaway !
I am Aymeric, a 35 y.o. French guy, dreaming about making a peaceful beach hostal focused on well-being, yoga, veggie food and intercultural exchange on the Colombian Carribean coast.

We are soon opening our beach hostal on the colorful Carribean coast of Colombia, only 15 minutes from both Tayrona park and The Lost City entrances. If you're a nature lover and a life on the beach may attract you, you'll love our place, a virgin beach located between a protected jungle, offering a majestic view on the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and only 20 minutes walking from two refreshing rivers.
The project is hitting the end of the first building phase, with a great social zone with bar & restaurant, 5 beach huts and a 8-persons dorm. The idea would be to build a small tribe of 4 volunteers to help us bringing the place to life: starting with helping building the furnitures & decoration "DIY style".
We'd like to have some turnover on the tasks to avoid routine fatigue, be prepared to help in cooking for the tribe (with a great focus on veggie food), housekeeping and gardening :) We'd also love a kind someone to give english class to our worker(s) and possibly involve kids of the community twice a week.
Volunteers will also be welcome to enjoy our daily yoga class on a stunning beach deck for free !
Oh, one more thing... as we're still waiting for the electricity to reach our land, be prepared to live simply : bonfire style by night ;) There are 3 other hostals on the beach so you'll still be able to connect to internet if you need to, spend a night partying, or even get discount on surf classes ! The region is full of natural marvels: rivers, waterfall, jungle are all around waiting for you.
If you feel you'll be happy joining the adventure for a while, don't hesitate to shoot me an email :)
Gracias y abrazos

The colombian Carribean coast is a pristine paradise full of beautiful locations, delicious tropical fruits and cultures that flourished between the numerous rivers, the carribean sea, and the Sierra Nevada, home of many indigenous tribes from Kogis to Wayuu. It's an incredible place where colombians, indigenous and backpackers meet in a surprising mix.
You can experience the history of this region, visiting the pre-Colombian Cuidad Perdidad and learning about the indigenous cultures around visiting their villages, feel like Robinson Crusoé in the Tayrona Park, discover the infinity quantity of Colombia's tropical fruits, learn to surf, join our free yoga classes, and practice your Spanish & salsa/champeta/cumbia dancing skills with the costenos, the welcoming and colorful people always ready to party !
