  • Description

    Description

    We are a growing forest reserve, created by a married couple: Hugo (Civil Engineer) and Silvia (Doctor), who want to leave a mark and contribute many grains of sand to the fight against climate change and food security. We started this dream of creating an eco-hostel that protects nature and recovers the cultural roots of the Guanes as an indigenous people that inhabited the Chicamocha Canyon.

    Somos una reserva forestal en crecimiento, creada por una pareja de esposos: Hugo (Ingeniero Civil) y Silvia (Médico), que queremos dejar huella y arportar muchos granitos de arena para la lucha contra el cambio climático y la seguridad alimentaria. Empezamos este sueño de crear a @Chicamocha_Vibes como un eco hostal que proteja la naturaleza y recupere el arraigo cultural de los Guanes como pueblo indígena que habitó el Cañón del Chicamocha

    In our house are all the time our living, some local farmers from the area who will have much to tell and teach. For now, we go every weekend, time in which we can share experiences, meals and do outdoor activities.

    En nuestra casa están todos el tiempo nuestros vivientes, unos campesinos locales de la zona que tendrán mucho por contar y enseñar. Nosotros por ahora vamos todos los fines de semana, tiempo en el que podremos compartir experiencias, comidas y realizar actividades al aire libre

    Hello everyone, we are Hugo and Silvia, we are currently starting a beautiful reforestation project in the Chicamocha Canyon in Santander, Colombia. Our project is located on the edge of the canyon and we are reforesting with species of native and fruit trees, recovering the ecosystem, supporting the birds and building a couple of cabins for eco-tourism. We are looking for people to help us with planting trees and gardening, planting home gardens and chickens :)
