  • Description


    Here in the Sierra Nevada we have a beautiful farm/project, with neighbours of the Koggi. Including waterfalls and natural swimming pools on the property!! A true Colombian experience. Close to the World famous Lost City Trek!!

    We are looking for some keen workawayers to come along enjoy the Camp Life and help build some cabañas with natural materials taught by the indigenous tribes nearby. A perfect way to get away from the crazy corona world we live in now!
