    Hello, we are looking for volunteers to make our lodge an even more unique place. We are surrounded by amazon forest with jaguar, spectacled bear, tapir, 5 species of monkey and about 500 species of birds.
    The lodge is complete off grid. We runs on solar panels and we do have (satellite) internet.

    You will learn a lot about life in the Amazonian jungle. Our friendly guides will teach you about the fauna and the flora. Soon you will recognize the sounds, learn about our cooking and how it is to run an ecolodge.
    The lodge is well-known among birdwatchers and photographers.

    The reserve exists for almost 4 years and the major works have been completed. But many improvements are still needed (mainly the paths around the house) and maintenance (the trails).
    There is plenty to do in the reserve and you can basically choose what you prefer to do. For safety reasons we do not want you to do risky things. But I presume you will not ask to work with the chainsaw.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️ ️ the garden requires a lot of work and it is not easy. The soil is infertile, (except of course for the weeds). Moreover, it is teeming with locusts, eating everything.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️ ️ You can help the tourists, guiding, explaining the (safety) rules, etc ..
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️ ️ you can help our caretaker with the maintenance or with small projects.
    Maybe you come up with an idea for improvement.

    You have to stay minimum 3 weeks, as it takes a lot of effort to explain how the lodge works. Also it is better for you as you will quickly be independently and make your own planning.
    We are limited to max. two workawayers (unless small families) as otherwise we can not give you enough attention.
    Check our calendar on the website (green = 2 places available, yellow = 1 place available, red = no places available).

    The food we prepare is delicious (mainly Asian food with Colombian ingredients). We are a lodge for tourists and therefore we are not strict vegetarian. It would however be hypocritical to try to save the rainforest and to organize BBQ's (meat is one of the main reasons for deforestation in Colombia). So we limit the use of (especially red) meat. And we serve many vegetarian meals as also a lot of our customers are vegetarian.

    The lodge is located at 1,5 hour driving + 2 hours walking (beautiful) from Puerto Asís. Your luggage can be brought to the lodge on horseback.

  • Unterkunft


    You will stay in a room with 2 beds and you will have it most of the time for yourself or with another Workawayer. Young families are also welcome. Pets are not allowed (as in most reserves).
    Because we are already located in the foothills, it is not hot (never airco required) and there are no diseases, such as yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, zika or malaria.

    There is a extensive network of trails (25 km) around the lodge, with various swimming holes and look-outs.
    Apart from that we have 3 canopy towers (even with accommodation).
    Also there are forest walks possible (with guides) to other swimming holes and waterfalls.
