    Description

    My name is Víctor, I am 32 years old and I live in the interior of Salamanca, Province of Choapa, Region of Coquimbo Chile. Salamanca is characterized by being an excellent destination for medium-mountain sports activities, with a large number of archaeological remains, excellent skies for stargazing and many traditions where the production of grapes used to prepare the best Piscos in Chile stood out. In addition, the Coquimbo region and especially the Choapa province prepare the best goat cheeses, recognized internationally.
    We are an adventure tourism company with a strong seal of conservation and protection of natural resources, we also allocate an important part of the resources obtained to improve the quality of life of our collaborators and their families and rural communities, respecting their authenticity and preserving their traditions.
    Four years ago we were certified as Company B, so we work with a focus on the triple impact: social, economic and environmental. We deliver tools that allow viable and sustainable economic activities, giving a correct use to environmental resources, maintaining essential ecological processes.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    From the beginning, our hallmark has been the integration of local populations and communities in the activities we carry out, always under conditions of equality, understanding that the difference in tourism is a virtue that allows cultural reproduction. We care that the people who visit us enjoy their stay doing activities with the local communities and neighboring rural towns, it is important that the visitor feels welcomed. People who visit us can take care of farm animals, participate in tourism fairs, share with locals who carry out activities of raising goats, cows and horses and small agriculture. We would like to offer activities that seek to care for and preserve the social, environmental and cultural environment of the region, through sustainable and responsible tourism.
    Volunteers can also share with indigenous guides in the area who will tell them stories, traditions, myths and legends so that they have a good experience.
    From the visitors I would like to learn about their culture, their profession, learn to build with “bio-construction”, learn to take good photos and make videos, learn their languages, learn to do yoga and sports activities such as climbing.


    Desde un inicio nuestro sello ha sido la integración de las poblaciones y comunidades locales en las actividades que realizamos, siempre bajo condiciones de igualdad entendiendo que la diferencia en el ámbito turístico es una virtud que permite la reproducción cultural. Nos preocupamos de que las personas que nos visitan disfruten su estadía realizando actividades con las comunidades locales y pueblos rurales aledaños, es importante que el visitante se sienta acogido. Las personas que nos visitan pueden realizar actividades de cuidado de animales de granja, participación en ferias de turismo, compartir con lugareños que realizan actividades de crianza de cabras, vacas y caballos y la pequeña agricultura. Nos gustaría ofrecer actividades que busquen cuidar y preservar el entorno social, medio ambiental y cultural de la región, a través del turismo sostenible y responsable.
    Los voluntarios además pueden compartir con guías indígenas de la zona que les contarán historias, tradiciones, mitos y leyendas para que vivan una buena experiencia.
    De los visitantes me gustaría aprender de su cultura, de su profesión, aprender a construir con “bioconstrucción”, aprender a sacar buenas fotos y realizar videos, aprender de sus idiomas, aprender a realizar yoga y actividades deportivas como escalar.
