    Description

    This is one of the best known tourist places since 2006, led by Dora, eldest daughter (of 10!) in Samaypata from a Quechua family. The patio, the kitchen, the balconies and the rooms breathe a cozy and artisanal atmosphere. The place houses many plants, works of art and we offer a complete and informative service to the traveler. You as a volunteer could be part of that!

    FINCA is a beautiful place in the mountains 15 minutes by mototaxi from Samaipata. Location: near the Amboro National Park. It's living in another way! I am Andrés originally from Holland, I will receive you, I have lived in Samaipata for 19 years. If you want, you can join me in my yoga (I am a Kundalini Yoga instructor). Minimum stay is 15 days.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Hostal: Samaipata area ofrece paisajes y ecosistemas sumamente diversos. Estamos ubicados entre Amazonia, Andes y el Chaco boliviano. Luego,
    vivir y compartir con tres flamantes mujeres bolivianas (Dora, Marlene, Marina) dentro de un pueblo pintoresco pero también cosmopolito (este pueblo atrae gente de todo América Latina y el mundo!) te da muchas oportunidades.... Conocer, ensayar, probar, la cultura familiar boliviana te atrapará. Aprenderás y conocerás nuevas comidas, español y un poco de Quechua quizás. Y (depende de tu) actitud aprenderás mucho de hotelería. Los mercados locales son fantásticos !

    Finca: un lugar apto para `ensayar` otras actividades y un estilo de vida diferente. Permaneciendo en las montañas te hará mas fuerte y mejora tu voluntad y tu condición físico y mental. Puedes aprender sobre permacultura, hierbas locales y medicinales, compostar y producir abono. Compartir yoga y meditación. Probarás nuevas recetas y maneras de cocinar (a gas, a leña, y el n horno).
