  • Description


    Hello! We are settled in La Colonia, a small town with lots of wildlife, rivers, and nice people.
    By we I mean my in-laws, my wife and I. Right now we have no more employees just us and since we already have all the plans to start building we need extra help.

    We want to build a touristic site for travelers from all around. The finca has around 20 acres divided into cattle, plantations, and now we want to build a couple of rustic cabanas close to the river. WE NEED YOU!
    So the most important to us is that you feel good with the trade at all times.

    The help we constantly need includes recycling, feeding animals, cleaning, gardening and farm tasks.

    The experience we offer cannot be explained and our gratitude neither.
