  • Description


    Hello WorkAway Friends!

    Welcome! This is our dream come true, a 3 acre Farm, Eco-Lodge and Animal Shelter ( still working on this one ). It is a fairly new project, having started on June 2022, so every help is welcome and appreciated!

    We are located right in the middle of The Colombian Andes, 15 minutes away from a picturesque little town called El Retiro in Antioquia, Colombia. We are also 30 minutes from the Jose María Córdova Airport and 40 minutes from the beautiful and famous city of Medellín!

    Do not hesitate to contact us, and see you around!

    What else ...

    You will be 40 minutes away from Medellin, one of the most beloved cities in Latin America. We regularly go there to visit our relatives, the ride is lovely, and we will always bring you with us and show you around so you can experience the best of the countryside and the city life. Also, 5 of the most beautiful Towns in Colombia are within a two hour ride (El Retiro, Rionegro, La Ceja, Jardin, Jerico and Santa Barbara). In otherwords, you won't be bored. Also, being close to the airport (18 minutes), you'll be able to jump on cheap flights and discover other destinations.
