  • Description


    Welcome to our finca, we are Pablo and Coline, we have just finished a 5-year trip to South America in our van, visiting, sharing and learning in various projects related to permaculture and regenerative processes. All this great movement has inspired us to start a new stage and carry out a project that mixes art, in its various branches, along with permaculture with its various techniques. We have under our guard a 10ha farm near Tayrona National Park, in a village called Orinoco, in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Here we intend to experiment with music and garden design, paint and plant, do acrobatics and bio-build, we have knowledge about various techniques of agroforestry, bio-construction, intensive bio garden. We will gladly share and receive the knowledge! Welcome

    Here you can sleep in a tent or hammock. We have mats to lend if you wish. We have a Mother House, where we live, there is the kitchen and the common space. The toilets are dry, here we take care of the water! For now we do not have Wi-Fi, but the neighbor 100 meters away does, and he lends us his password. Also the 4g signal of clear works very well. The electricity is solar, it works well to charge cell phones, cameras and computers. Please bring long work clothes and sturdy footwear for work in the field. Let us remember that we are guardians of this land and we ask for your collaboration and awareness with garbage, hygiene products. We do not provide toilet paper.

    Aquí puedes dormir en carpa ó hamaca. Disponemos de colchonetas para prestar si así lo desean.
    Tenemos una Casa Madre, dónde vivimos, allí se encuentra la cocina y el espacio común. Los baños son secos, aquí cuidamos el agua!

    Por ahora no tenemos wifi, pero el vecino a 100metros sí tiene, y nos presta su clave. Igualmente la señal 4g de claro funciona muy bien.

    La electricidad es solar, funciona bien para cargar celulares, cámaras y ordenadores. (el acceso es limitado)

    Pedimos por favor que traigan ropa de trabajo larga, y calzado resistente para los trabajos en el campo.

    Recordemos que somos guardianes de esta tierra y les pedimos colaboración y conciencia con la basura, los productos de higiene.

    No proveemos el papel higiénico.

    The land is located at 5km from the main road, and the beach !!! It has good access for cars (if you own car ask for further information), and from the point in the Troncal, it takes you1 hour walking or 10 minutes by motorcycle. Here in our spare time we make music, crafts, slack line, acroyoga, we refresh ourselves in the ravine and other crazy things that arise. The beach is an hour's walk away, we sometimes go with the surfboards to spend the day. You also have many attractions in the region, we can tell you some. Tayrona Park is very close, only 10km by car or 4km on foot. You have buses to Palomino or Santa Marta every 30 minutes from the point in the Troncal, it is about 1 hour of travel.
