  • Description

    Description

    We aré a generous spirited Colombian natural reserve who has been building an ecologically agroforestal project for the last 7 years. The reserve resides on 35 hectares in the peaceful and beautiful Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
    We want to grow our organization with volunteers to give many people the chance to experience being part of this project.

    We receive no more then 3 visitors at a time and there are not many neighbors, so if you are looking for social life this is not the place, there might not be much apart for the Kogi Family that live there and myself. The ideal is that you bring your own food.

    What else ...

    The National Park of Tayrona is a vast protected area of 150 square km on the Caribbean coast. Visiting Tayrona is an excellent way to explore a rainforest and spot animals for days without a guide. The trails are well marked, and the hikes are easy. Plus, the visitors don’t have to carry a heavy backpack filled with bottles of water and foods because there are campings nestled along the coast.
