We are an award winning hostel situated on the Rio Buritaca, around 10 minutes by car from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, with a large community outreach arm.
We are looking for a teacher for our Community English programme to start asap (TEFL qualified and/or Spanish speaking ideally, but do still reach out to us if not). A volunteer to run Yoga in the mornings at the hostel and a preferably Spanish speaking multi-sports coach to help out with daily sports activities with our Foundation. Our rooms are also in need of a bit of an artistic makeover, so if you're an artist and are up for some painting then let us know. There will also be opportunities to paint in the community and teach art to local children.
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, the Caribbean is a 25-minute walk away, and there are thermal springs in the hills nearby. We also have an abundance of fruit trees!
We are situated in Buritaca, sandwiched between Palomino and Parque Tayrona, both just 25 minutes away.
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.
All English teachers please get in touch. We prefer TEFL qualified and/or Spanish speakers if possible but feel free to get in touch otherwise.
The Multi-sport coach position is to support our big community sports programme: to provide free sports club opportunities for every child in our local town. Spanish speakers again preferred if possible.
There are big painting opportunities both in the hostel and in the community and the opportunity to teach art to local children through our Foundation.
We have private rooms with beds, plus all 3 meals
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.
