    Hello! We are an Eco Lodge near Minca, Colombia. Located at 1500 meters above sea level, our project sits literally on a mountain top overlooking the Caribbean Sea, with beautiful views of the snow peaks in the Sierra Nevada mountain range of Santa Marta.

    Our main focuses here at the lodge are permaculture, plant medicine, herbalism, yoga, meditation, natural building, and overall creating a more conscious living environment for our guests and volunteers. We cook homemade vegetarian and vegan meals, using as much locally grown produce as possible. In time, we hope the project will provide many of our dietary needs.

    Our accommodation includes shared dorm cabañas with 2 floors, and private cabañas for couples/families that sit on the edge of the mountain overlooking the sea. In the surroundings of the farm there are multiple activities for the adventurous, outdoorsy person such as: hiking to the ancient ruins of The Lost City, an ancient city occupied by the Tayrona tribe over 1500 years ago; multiple waterfalls, including private waterfalls that are only accessible to our farm guests; survival training courses; multiple rivers to swim in and coffee farms to tour.

    We also host a variety of different events; it is our future goal to run entirely from such events. Amongst these we hold cacao ceremonies, yoga courses, permaculture classes and plant medicine retreats. The Sierra Nevada mountains are the highest coastal mountain range in the world, which means if you are seeking a change from the mountain scene, you can be on the beach with a cold drink in about 2 hours. We believe that in these mountains, there is something on offer for everybody!

    Currently we have many ongoing projects, although since our project is fairly young we are especially looking for volunteers with experience in . One of the most important skills we look for is experience with vegetarian cooking. We cook in small groups, and we value diversity and creativity in the kitchen.

    As of the beginning of 2018, our building projects include building: a function room for ceremonies, yoga and workshops - known sometimes as a Maloka; a natural swimming pool plus other water retaining ponds; swales, terraces and garden beds. We always have work in the gardens; planting trees, flowers, herbs and vegetables; mulching and applying compost; plant propagation and maintenance amongst other tasks.

    We are also always looking for people with experience in yoga, plant medicine, natural building and permaculture. We include a photo which shows our short and long term goals for future projects, to give you a better idea of what kind of things we do around here!

    During the summer months, our internet connection is pretty good. Maybe not for uploading heavy data files but for working simple apps it should be enough.
