Who are we?
A healthy living hostel, who run and arrange energising daily activities around town . We keep the experiences local and mix with the community whenever we can.
So it's about connecting with nature under pro-active days, in the local way.
We represent those different branches we offer, as well as the natural roots and wellness living.
What do we do?
Monday to Friday at 06:00, as fresh local coffee is served, we run daily fitness sessions. The sessions are for all levels and free for all clients, and normally last only 30 minutes but always finish off with a plunge in the waterfall, all before breakfast.
After breakfast, each day you can buy onto a number of other energising activities, such as; local daily treks into rural Colombia using local transport, yoga and meditation programs (weekends only), cross-fit classes, trail running, dance classes, as well as high adrenaline adventure sports from around San Gil town.
How do we work alongside the local community?
Firstly, although the hostel has private areas within the property, we also have community areas which we share with a hotel. A hotel which has local and national cliental, allowing us social opportunities with fellow travellers, on a Colombian basis, should you choose.
We also partner with a local volunteer foundation, cross-fit gym and kids school. For our local rural walks, the guides are locals too, we use local transport, and visit more locals along our way.
Keeping it real and Colombian, as well as supporting the local economy, is important to us.
Our Target Market?
International travellers of all ages, including families, who are travelling around Colombia. Mid-range budget, looking for nature, healthy living and local experiences.
