We are a young family, our son is born on the 18th february. My name is Anna, I am French-Argentinian, and my boyfriend's name is Camilo, he is from Argentina.
We have been backpacking in Colombia for a few months last year, looking for our favourite place to settle down, to receive our baby at home. Of all the places we've seen, we chose beautiful Palomino. In november last year we moved in a house with nice open spaces and a big garden, located in a quiet and green neighbourhood of Palomino, walking distance to the river and to the beach.
We also recently have adopted a baby cat.

Help with Computers / internet
PLEASE NOTE: MY MOBILE PHONE GOT STOLEN AND LEFT ME PRETTY UNCOMMUNICATED. FOR THAT REASON WE ARE NOT RECEIVING VOLUNTEERS AT THE TIME BEING. SORRY IF I AM NOT ANSWERING THE REQUESTS.
I am now dedicated to the baby and have him in arms most of the time.
I would like to eat healthily and regularly, and as my hands are busy, it would be great to have some help. Mainly preparing food (green juices, fruit platters and vegetarian meals) if you enjoy cooking, as well as some help in the house, maintaining it clean and tidy, and with the washing from time to time (we rent a washing machine every couple of days to wash towels, baby clothes, sheets etc).
I am breast-feeding and spending most of the day topless, for that reason and for that profile, I am looking for a girl volunteer.
We are looking for someone enthusiastic, efficient and very clean, ideally that enjoys cooking creative and varied vegetarian healthy food, and that would like to stay at least a week.
I am looking for persons that have ecological awareness and live their life healthily: non-cigarette smokers (this point is very important), non alcoholic drinkers, going to bed early (all is relative, but basically people living during day time).
we both speak spanish (and Anna also speaks English, French and some Portuguese)
In tent on a nice shady spot under a mango tree, with thick grass. You need to have your own water proof tent as the rainy season is starting. We have mats and pillow for you to use. The bathroom in the house (potentially shared with other guests or volunteers).
Palomino has good waves to surf, and a long white sandy beach full of coconut trees, perfect for walking, running or just chilling out.
At each ends of town there are rivers where you can fish and swim, as well as go all the way down the Palomino river in a massive floater they will rent you in town.
Right behind us, is the Sierra Nevada of Santa-Marta, a snow-top mountain where you can go for hikes, and meet the 4 different local indigenous communities that live there.
Palomino is also only a short bus ride away from the famous Tayrona park entrance, that is said to be one of the most beautiful natural reserves of Colombia.
And much more to discover, according to your tastes and what sort of activities you like doing.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
You will be able to improve your Spanish, and experience a peaceful lifestyle between jungle and sea, in one of Colombia's best beach spots. Palomino has a special energy, it is a beautiful place to grow spiritually :)
