  • Description


    Our eco-language school and adventure guides offer a unique opportunity for travelers to learn about Colombian culture and language. We're located in beautiful San Rafael, a small town just 45 minutes away from Guatape, with many pristine blue swimming holes (or charcos as we call them here) and scenic mountain hikes. Each day starts with language classes, followed by a daily activity ranging from language exchanges with locals to nature adventures like swimming and canyoning. As a volunteer, you'll be able to join in this unique experience and help us make it even better.

    We are three friends who are dedicated to helping travelers experience authentic Colombia. We are Colombian, somos Colombianos and we are certified adventure guides with a lot of experience. Our school opened in September 2018 and we have met some amazing volunteers and guests through this project. We would love you to be part of it.
