    Hola!! Somos Juanita, Mauricio y Leandro!
    Entre nosotros 3 hemos comprado un pequeño lote de terreno en zona rural del municipio de Pijao en el Quindío.
    El sitio se encuentra en las montañas del eje cafetero, rodeado de un entorno natural muy bonito y con una gran vista del paisaje. Nuestra idea es poder desarrollar en el corto plazo un proyecto turistico con servicio de hospedaje. Por ahora, ninguno de los 3 puede vivir allí y es por eso que estamos buscando a alguien con la disposición de tiempo y voluntad de colaboración para atender las necesidades del terreno mientras podemos dar inicio oficial a nuestro proyecto.

    Hello!! We are Juanita, Mauricio and Leandro!
    Between us 3 we have bought a small plot of land in a rural area of the municipality of Pijao in Quindío.
    The site is located in the mountains of the coffee region, surrounded by a very beautiful natural environment and with a great view of the landscape. Our idea is to be able to develop a tourist project with lodging service in the short term. For now, none of the 3 can live there and that is why we are looking for someone with the time and willingness to collaborate to attend to the needs of the land while we can officially start our project.

    Buscamos principalmente alguien que permanezca en la cabaña. Las tareas son pocas porque el proyecto esta apenas iniciando.
    Por ahora las labores son esporadicas, como siembra de árboles, retiro de malezas en potreros, ayudar a contruir el camino de acceso entre otras.
    Los viajeros estaran casi todo el tiempo solos en la casa ya que nosotros no vivimos allí aunque tratamos de ir los fines de semana; estos dias, los viajeros pueden irse de viaje y nosotros vamos a cuidar de la cabaña.

    ENGLISH

    We are primarily looking for someone to stay in the cabin. The tasks are few because the project is just starting.
    For now, the tasks are sporadic, such as planting trees, removing weeds, helping to build the access road, among others.
    The travelers will be almost all the time alone in the house since we do not live there although we try to go on weekends; These days, travelers can go on trips and we will take care of the cabin.
