  • Description


    Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!

    The hotel is a transformative experience of visiting Santa Marta. Designed to offer our guests (inhabitant) and volunteers the possibility to discover a magical territory, with all the singularity of its geography, history, culture and people.

    We are a unique social tourism experience in Santa Marta and Colombia, the hotel is owned and operated by a Colombian NGO called Tiempo de Juego that aims to better the life of youths through the use of arts and sports. All proceeds go to this end. More Info on Tiempo de Juego: . We also operate three grass root projects in and around Santa Marta which gives our volunteers unique opportunities to work with our proven methodology and work with your skills and teach or work with our foundation members.

    Volunteering here is part of a new way of living and inhabiting the city, in addition to staying in a spectacular house in the historic center of Santa Marta, our visitants or volunteers mix with the local daily life by having the opportunity to live the territory and contribute to a project that is contributing to the positive change of the people who need it most.

    We also pride in being the first social tourism hotel in Santa Marta with our unique portfolio os social tourism activities; They are: Walking Tours in the historic center of Santa Marta guided by youths from the foundation, visiting our foundation headquarters and getting to know first hand what we do, play soccer with the community in our Community Soccer night or visit Bonito Gordo Beach and get to know the history of one of the oldest fishing communities in Santa Marta.
