    We are an award winning hostel situated on the Rio Buritaca, around 10 minutes by car from the Caribbean coast of Colombia. We run a Foundation from the hostel that runs educational, sporting and environmental projects to positively impact our local community.

    For the Hostel:

    We are looking for yoga teachers, artists, carpenters or people who really want to have a good time being part of our volunteer family.

    Enjoy the Colombian Caribbean while working with us, you will have a lot of joy from both worlds.
    All skills are welcome, just send us a message and we will gladly answer you, we will be more than happy to have you volunteer with us. Also for the foundation, to help provide FREE, fun, inclusive and impactful activities for every child in our local town, we are also looking for the following volunteers to help us:

    • Community English teachers/Academic Tutors to work in our local town to help children who didn't go to school for nearly two years. At the moment, we are looking for a Native Spanish speaking teacher to be able to stay from early July until at least end of August.
    • A Foundation volunteer to help join all our activities and promote volunteering opportunities to guests
    • A Spanish speaking multi-sports coach
    • Environmental education expert or someone who has experience in setting up recycling infrastructure
    • Film makers and photographers

    We can offer all 3 meals and accommodation, most likely in a small shared dorm (2 - 4 ppl) or larger shared dorm for more general volunteering, and discounted drinks, in exchange for 5 hours help a day. (5 days a week).

    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 and the Caribbean is a 25-minute walk away.
    We also have a wide variety of activities available in and around the hostel: table tennis, pool, paddleboards, volleyball, football, tubing and loads of amazing beaches: Parque Tayrona, waterfalls, entrance to lost city, sunrise hike and much more.

    The surrounding area is quintessentially Colombian - we are in a very rural location with plenty of fun things to do in the area and lots of other hostels nearby

    Yoga lessons! If you're qualified, even better.
    Our English teaching spots are available again from late June and beginning of July 2022. we are looking for a native Spanish speaker and TEFL qualified is also a bonus.
    The Foundation volunteer/multi-sports coach role is to promote our daily Foundation activities to hostel guests and encourage them to come along and volunteer with us. It is also to drive on site fundraising, especially on Foundation Wednesdays. There is also the opportunity to go out everyday and run fun sport or arts sessions with kids in our local area. We are looking for someone who is fun, sociable, reliable and who is happy to approach all guests staying in the hostel to tell them about the Foundation. Sales and sports coaching experience hugely preferable. Spanish speaking also desirable but not essential.
    There are also big painting opportunities both in the hostel and in the community and the opportunity to teach art to local children through our Foundation.
    Film makers and photographers always welcome :)
    And someone to help lead our year round environmental education programme in our local community would be fantastic!!

    Palomino, Parque Tayrona, 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.
