We live in a coffee farm 7km away from Pereira-Colombia.we are a legally registered Hostel Making bike tours, hiking, and other outdoor activities and of course the whole coffee proccess from the fields to the cup. Ready to export. My biggest concern is about web design, social media and finding the way to bring more income to keep this project going, I have to much work outside and I'm really outdated about techs. My goal for this year is to keep this place open, just reading our guest's book I realize that I can't give up with this dream. This is a lovely place with a huge potential due to our prime coffee, the unique spots that I Know around and the increasing demand for adventure in the region.We are a couple 45-41 years old. We love cooking local and explore other flavors and tastes, so bring your spices and stuff and we can explore fusions and why not create a hit.
We live here with our pets, 4 dogs, 3 cats, and other wildlife visitors sometimes, we have book exchange and a lot of easy reading books in spanish, dictionaries and stuff to learn little spanish here while cooking or helping with some last minute duty like painting a new wall or bringing the salad from the garden. easy public transportation, convinience stores around, pharmacy, supermarket, atm machines.
Due to weather conditions, here you never know when it's going to rain, so schedules and plans can change in a minute. At first, people feel frustrated and dissapointed but when you realize that there is no reason to believe 100% what a forecast app shows you, everything start going well. One thing for sure is that you won't have a minute hanging around with nothing to do, birdwarching, having a swim in the river, opening a new bike tour, etc.
Just need some help to keep this paradise going and we will feed you, nurse you and send you back home at least speaking a good and useful slang spanish.
Help with Computers / internet
We are located in a environmental and archeological protected area (Consota River) ancient Quimbaya's main salt mine is just 3km down the Road, this area has been the main commercial hub connecting first the different indigenous families with intrincate trails and paths crossing the central mountain range to trade with the Muiscas, Pijaos and other families from Magdalena Valley and Sabana de Bogotá at Eastern Mountain Range, to South West with Nasa, Paeces and to NorthWest with Embera Chamies and many other cultures, Then during Spanish Conquest the trails were used to connect royal provinces in south like Quito and Popayan with SantaFe de Antioquia near Medellin, Tunja and Bogota. Then Antioquena and Cauca colonizations used the trails to expand their plantations and economy to what is nowadays the main coffee district in Colombia. Trails has become in the main roads we use today, some are still in service as secondary unpaved roads, narrow trails to connect the villages in the National Park and others are still just hidden on the bushes or simply desappeared.
We will go back on time at nights to study and discuss about history to understand better our roots and culture.
Home of almost 1.900 species (nearly one fifht of the world total), Colombia hosts the highest number of birds than any country in the world. Our surrounding highlands are dominated by numerous volcanoes in 600 square Km, all located in one of the biggest National Parks in Colombia known as PNN Los Nevados. We are located in the western slope of the central Andes having 3 classic sites for birding above the main cities such Pereira, Armenia y Manizales. Main Bird Festival takes place in Pereira in March every year.
Need a Web/ Social Media developer
We already have a website but outdated and without any content.
Have lots of pictures and videos but I don't know how to choose the right material to show up and succeed.
The idea is organize all that media stuff to choose the right pics and videos to use them in the advertising. If you have a drone will be great to film river courses or explore ancient trails.
Better if having driver license to help me a bit with the jeep while doing videos and photography.
