  • Description


    Only accessible by foot, the base camp is a 25 min hike from Minca, beautiful little town of international and colombian culture where you will find a true buena onda. Lively little town.

    Our little piece of paradise is situated in the Sierra Nevada, a wild and powerful jungle of majestic trees, magical cacao, waterfalls, birds and snakes.

    See below for the main goals of this season.



    Somos jardineros, constructores, permaculturistas y artistas dedicados a enseñar, aprender y compartir.

    Nuestro objetivo es simplemente vivir en la selva y proteger la tierra.

    "Existencia armoniosa con la naturaleza"

  • Accommodation


    The accommodation is lovely but quite basic. There is no electricity or wifi, but there is phone service.

    We have a beautiful fully functioning outdoor kitchen. Compost toilets. Shower with a view ;)

    Good thing if you HAVE YOUR OWN TENT and stuff. But we do have some tents and small mattresses.

    Also, we are 25 min hike from town, there is no road access. Having boots is a plus, there are snakes out there :) Don't be scared but be cautious.

    Our work requirement is minimal, so we don´t provide food. We do often share meals that everyone contributes to, so you are welcome to buy food to share with all, only buy food for yourself, or some combination of the two :)
    We always end up making truly amazing food with what seems to be very little.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The most beautiful waterfalls in Minca are a short hike from our spot. And Minca is always there when we need to buy food, connect, party or simply change scenery.
