  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The opportunity to live off the grid, practice your spanish, be a part of community living.

    As well, thanks to the diverse ecology and geography of San Martin, where the jungle (selva) meets the mountains (sierra), the region serves as a prime location for all things adventurous and fun. There exists a variety of options for outdoor adventure, with everything from horse-back riding, repelling, and rafting, to waterfalls, thermal springs, mud baths, national parks, and more! With all this abundance, there's sure to be plenty of adventure to schedule into your itinerary! And don't forget the majestic blue lagoon within Sauce, and the 3 meter waterfall on our land!
