  • Description


    My (Colombian) husband and I (English) have recently moved to the countryside in a small village called Calderón on the outskirts of Puerto Boyacá , Boyacá . We're in the process of setting up a new business, so would love to host workawayers with experience of creating websites and social media such as Instagram. And also if you like gardening/growing plants and veggies, you're most welcome. You must like dogs as we have three fairly large dogs, and if you're up for some dog walking/training, that would be even better!!

    We live in the countryside near Puerto Boyacá, Boyaca. It's quiet and peaceful and not in the least bit touristy.

    Puerto Boyaca is roughly halfway between Bogotá and Medellin. The town is about half an hour away from Calderón where we live.

    The internet here is quite sporadic, so if you need to connect every day this workaway is not for you!

    If you like nature you're in for a treat as there are lots of animals and birds here
    Prepare to be woken up by parrots!

    I am pretty fluent in Spanish, and most of my friends are Colombians so there is plenty of opportunity to learn/improve your Spanish. In addition to sharing my nice rustic house in the countryside, you will also be well fed as I am a very good cook!

    I really cannot take smokers. I am allergic to smoke.

    Thank you!
