  • Description


    We are Jane and Felipe and we have a hostel here in San Gil. Jane is from the UK and Felipe is Colombian. The house is a beautiful hacienda on an organic coffee farm up in the hills about 5km from San Gil. We are surrounded by tranquility and wonderful nature, birds, butterflies and hummingbirds.

    We aren't always looking for volunteers, just at busy times but if we need people it's for general help around the house - cleaning/laundry/help with guests. If you would like to help us out send me a message!
