Helping with Tourists
We ask our volunteers to be available to help us out for a total of 35 hours per week. This is soo relaxed; either being behind the bar for an evening or being available during the day to help with tasks such as showing guests to their rooms. Basically an extra pair of hands where necessary! In return, we offer accommodation, one meal a day and alcohol proportionate to what you sell.

Medellín is a vast city built north to south in the Aburrá valley and surrounded on either side by majestic mountain ranges. There are the busy markets and a thriving street life that make up much of the city's charm. The city is home to a half-dozen universities, accounting for a vibrant cultural and nightlife scene fueled by thousands of young adults from all over the country. Medellín is also Colombia's second largest industrial center, and home to factories making everything from designer clothing to trucks. The city's northern hills are flooded with rural refugees from the ongoing civil war and their ingenuity in making a living is impressive. People sell anything from crayons to guinea pigs to garden earth in the bars in order to make a living.
As a relatively newer city, the architecture has a decidedly modernist appeal, which goes hand in hand with the progressiveness of its residents. Medellin also has the first (and only) Metro system in Colombia. And, for international travelers, Medellín is perhaps most famous for the Botero Museum, whose namesake is one of the most famous modern artist alive today. It is also known for its perfect climate, as witnessed by its nickname "city of the eternal spring".
