    W are needing volunteers to help us to build our dream, a new rural eco- hostel. We have been constructing opportunities to enjoy of confortable rooms to sleep, taking care of your health through eating as organic as possible, having your own sessions of meditation and yoga in the best possible place , and an incredible place to work on top of the mountains while you have the tastiest cup of Colombian Coffee.
