  • Description


    Discover the rural coast of Colombia! We created a space dedicated to becoming self-sustainable and self-conscious to provide for a tranquil experience living a simple life in one of the world’s most bio diverse coastal ecosystems.

    Capurganá is a little town on the Caribbean Coast of Colombia, in the middle of tropical rain forests near the Panamá border. There are no roads or cars leaving us far from city noise and pollution. It's accessible by boat or small plane.

    We arrived to the area in September 2016 to a truly magical place. Nestled among a variety of tropical fruits trees like lemons, mangos, guayabas, papaya, cacaos, bananas, breadfruit, chirimoya, guanabana, zapote to name a few and even more we have yet to discover!
    We manage a small camping and 2 rooms for guest. Aditionally we work in agriculture, banana and in the natural construction.

    Located on a one-hectare field near a river with a natural swimming pool our site is 20 minutes walking distance to the Capurganá beach, leaving you endlessly captivated by the natural landscape of the region.

    Our main activities for volunteering include organic gardening, working on the banana plantation and woodwork with locally grown bamboo and earth soil.

    What else ...

    Around Capurgana there are nice caribean beaches where you can chill out. You can do a lot of trek along the coast or in the jungle, visit natural swimming pool. You also can snorkeling, take dive classes (there is a dive school) and do birdwatching with a very good local guide.
    There is no cash machine in Capurgana and all around. Take enough cash for your journey.
