  • Description


    We are a family of three - a busy artist, a busy hotelier, and an active 5 year old, and our house is usually full of guests. We would like a volunteer (or a couple) who can help with our child and activities around the house like gardening, food prep, helping with animals, etc.

    My husband owns a popular surf hotel next door to the house where you can chill, take surf lessons, party, and enjoy the swimming pool in your free time. There are plenty of opportunities to learn/ practice spanish with us and with a large group of volunteers who are working in the hotel next door.

    We live about an hour from Santa Marta (nearest city), we like nature, the beach, and the place where we live is a paradise. Tyrona National Park is only a few kilometers away and is a must for travelers. Nearby there are also many beaches and rivers, incredible natural sites, Minca, Sierra Nevada, Cabo de la Vela, Taganga, Palomino, etc.

    Volunteers will live in a private cabin with private bathroom. Food is included.
