    Only 2 hours via bus from Bogota our home is an easy first stop using from the city using the Transmillenio Bus Station to Bogota's Portal Sur. From there it is a 10 minute walk to Terminal de Transportes. Even with limited spanish it quite easy to find. Once you arrive here we would ofcourse send one of our cabs to pick you up.

    We have a pool, jacuzzi, and also a gym inside our house. Within the gated community there is a small lake, church, and poolwaterslide. Feel safe and secure while living next to Colombia's largest military base. The Rio Magdale, El Parque Aquatico Picilago are a few sites very close to our home. Pereira and Manizales are roughly 4 hours via bus.
    We have 3 dogs but most people sensitive to animals do not seem to have a problem with that due to the fact that our floors are tile and we keep the windows open.

    This host listing was written by my friend who is a native english speaker. I would appreciate if you could use basic english or spanish if you are interested in this opportunity.
