  • Description


    Hi, my name is Matia, I`m working in tourism in the last 14 years and we have a project to work on this with my family. We are 2 members, my mother(62), and me(38). We own a peace of land with a very nice view of the mountains, The Andes, in the province of Salta, that`s north of Argentina. Salta has become a growing touristy destination because of stunning landscapes and there`s the chance to develop activities in the nature related to the mountains like hiking, trekking, climbing, camping and enjoying the nature in our land.

    The project starts with the idea of improving our campground and brewery in all related to the services to the guests. The main idea is to use ecological techniques and the local materials available like, rocks, mud and logs.

    Some flats were bilded and now we have to finish part of them in order to host more people. Then it´s needed to paint the rooms, the new swiming pool and some garden work. To colect wood is also helpfull. On the other side people with knowledge of digital marketing and social media would be good if can help us to improve the sales of the guest house.

    For this we need help, there´s a lot to do and we can provide a very good and comfortable place to stay, internet and our friendship of course. I speak English, and I`m also improving my German. We love to be in touch with people from different countries and we want you to have a very nice experience while being in Salta with us.

    At the moment we want to finish 2 flats to host more people. We need to paint them, also the new swiming pool, gardening, colect wood.

    For the future, when finishing with our guest house we want to work on the next stage of the proyect, ( build a base camp, clean part of the land on the way to the mountain, cutting the grass, improve the trail to get to the top of the mountain. We also need to make small signs to help visitors not to lose the trail. The way to the top of the mountain takes about 2 hours walking.)

    The third stage of the project is to build a refuge at the top of the mountain with rocks, mud and logs. We will need to carrie some materials to the top and then start the construction.

    So, there´s a lot to do, We estimate a few years of work until the trail and the refuge area is ready.
