Our family is building the first hostel in town, we want to offer an authentic experience of living in Colombia, we see this as an opportunity to contribute to the traveller's experience, as well as help with the development of the town.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We can provide accommodation, breakfast and lunch, the volunteer is free to have dinner outside or cook, we have a washing machine. We would not only provide a place to sleep, but the warmth of a Colombian family, we would make the best to share cultural activities, salsa dancing, Spanish practising and city tours. Yumbo is a quite cheap place to live, ideal for people trying to save money while travelling.
We're building the first hostel, a non-touristic town located 15km away from Cali. We require volunteers to help us with this project, working 15 hours a week in construction tasks. Basically dry-wall construction and decoration.
Private room with a 2-floors bed. We can accept two volunteers who would share the room. The other spaces would be shared.
We will cook for everyone, my family eats meat, but we can cook vegetarian food, I prefer vegetarian food myself.
Volunteers are free to do other activities or works in their free time. Transportation is frequent from the Bus Terminal in Cali and we're close to the Alfonso Bonilla Aragon International Airport. We would constantly suggest activities the volunteer can do with us or alone in the city.
