We are Daniela and León and we fall in love in colorful Jardín and its beautiful nature that’s surround it. We found a peaceful place 3 km from the village where we want to offer an accommodation and a peaceful place to relax to the travelers.
On the property are builded, next to the main house, 3 cabins and place with hammock to relax. It’s a perfect place to enjoy nature; we have our own three waterfalls accessible just from our property, cultivation of Lulo, many fruit trees and berries. Mornings and late afternoon you can observe many species of bird’s coming back to their nests, in the darkness the place fills with fireflies and during the night you will hear just the sound of the fizzing stream.
Jardín is a beautiful small town with friendly authentic atmosphere located 4 hours from Medellin. There are many things to do; there are many hikes to waterfalls, mountains, you can visit one of the many coffee farms and coffees around town, you can go biking, horseback riding, paragliding and canyoning. We have bikes which you can use to go to the village.
In exchange to the 5 hours’ help a day (5 days a week) we provide you accommodation and a food (sometimes Daniela cooks sometimes volunteers cook by them own, we provide basic ingredients). Volunteers are expected to help keep the house clean and tidy, help in the kitchen (for volunteers) and wash the dishes after the meals.
