    Description

    Welcome to Paradise!

    OUR FARM- The farm is 400m high in the Andean foothills of the Amazon, surrounded by wild jungle & other village farms. We are far away from the city and enjoy fresh air. There are many rare birds, butterflies and wild animals in the surrounding jungle.
    We practice organic farming. We have a tree nursery and reforestation project, some bee keeping and chickens. We produce coconut oil and natural products here as well.

    -WHAT YOU CAN DO HERE-
    You will have either a private room or a shared room, 3 meals a day which is a collaborative process in the kitchen. Working hours are only 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. We usually go sightseeing, hiking on the weekend or even a weekday as well as make a run to the city if you like.
    We are currently developing an Eco lodge project. You can help with tree planting, gardening, coconut oil production, construction, etc. It's not very rigid, so you can participate in the activities you are more interested in.
    We have a really wide variety of things to do. We're not just looking for helpers but also people to share this beautiful place and experience with. We have an incredible river with cascades on the property that we are developing as one of our main tourist attractions. (International Backpackers coming soon!). All our workers are local Peruvians so you will experience the best of both worlds.
    If you want to see everything from the jungle forest, eco-construction, permaculture, to producing coconut oil you came to the right place.

    -HOW TO GET HERE:
    We are located in the Sector of Huapo, in the District of Lamas, in San Martin Peru. Lamas is 25 minutes outside of Tarapoto.

    To get from Lima to Tarapoto by air, I would recommend Star Peru ( ) The flight is 55 minutes.

    By bus I would recommend Movil Tours (). They are the largest bus operator in Peru and have new and clean buses. The ride should be about 28 hours.
    We can arrange for you to be picked up by trusted contacts in Tarapoto, the biggest city in the region less than an hour away from our farm.

    Feel free to ask me about anything. I check my Workaway inbox daily.

    Take care,

    On your time off, there are cascades, and great hiking right on the property and other natural wonders close by as well. We often make a trip into the city ussually on the week-end. We can plan some trips to the local natural attractions here in the amazon, and check out the night-life for whoever is up for it. Whatever, your preference is I'm sure we can point you in the right direction.
