  • Description

    Description

    Web aré a generous spirited Colombian natural reserve who has been building an ecologically agroforestal project for the last 5 years. The reserve resides on twenty eight 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 1 or 2 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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The reserve offers a lot of information and a good working experience in tropical nature. If you wish to learn something, you are always welcome to ask. Depending on the time of the stay, the responsibilities will be more and also the knowledge.

    Learning about farming and permaculture in general, take part of a great project that seeks to transform agriculture involving ecological and social local tissues plus you can balance your carbon footprint by reforesting.

    As an interchange we offer comfortable accommodation and healthy and delicious food. Our level of English is good, but we have a great experience in teaching Spanish to foreigners, which can be another possibility of Exchange.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The National Park of Tayrona is a vast protected area of 150 square km on the Caribbean coast. There are secluded beaches accessible by boat only and a hiking section with 2 entrances: Calabazo and Zaino.

    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.

    And, at the end of the excursions, gorgeous beaches like Cabo San Juan, La Piscina or Playa Brava are a fantastic reward. Particularly when you’re all dirty and sweating.
