  • Description


    Hello we are Esperanza and Aristides, Colombian people. We propose one or two weeks stays of an organic farm. The idea is to take advantage of splendid landscapes in the middle of a luxuriant vegetations of mango trees, tangerines, orange groves, cocoa and more. Esperanza stays there all the time in the farm.When you're at the farm, maybe Esperanza needs to go to Bogotá for few days...

    The idea is simple: we can accommodate up to 2 people in exchange for what you work according to the needs of the farm (about 5 hours per day).

    Information: We accept the beginning of a voluntary mission from Sunday or at the latest Monday evening...
