    What else ...

    (the hostel is closed at the moment so you may not find mutch human interaction, so if you are a person that cant be by your self for a long time, is not the right place)You need to have travel insurance. We don't have internet at the moment but you can buy a Sim card from Claro it's cheap and you have internet at anytime in the area. There are no atm in this area, bring enough money. Is better to buy the food in a supermarket in the city before you arrive, here you don't find a variety of products. If your main focus is a cultural exchange here is not possible all the time, depending of the season and situation, there can be less or more people to interact with. Right in front of the farm you can take a bus tha can bring you to Tairona park, Palomino, Hostels and other atractions. We have a river as a border, it's all yours!! Go explore an refresh. :) If you are a creativ person we have an art studio were you have the space to paint or build something and if you like bushcraft, the farm provide you the material you may need. Fishing in the river is also a good option to pass the time. You can eat from our fruits llike mango, coconut, starfruit... If you are coming from any big city it's better to buy your food there and bring it.
