    Description

    Hi there!

    We are looking for eager persons willing to help us in our projects.

    In October, 2017 we opened a beautiful Hostel in this amazing region of the Colombian Andes, with the idea of working sustainable tourism. Due to the recent events (COVID-19), the tourism sector is experiencing some of its worst crisis in decades. Taking this into account, we are re-thinking our economic activities and trying to innovate into this new world.

    As every crisis can be seen as an opportunity, we take advantage of the COVID-19 restrictions and we are promoting slow tourism as a new way of travelling. We are also working in some other projects (non related with tourism) in which you might want to get involved.

    Your accomodation will be in a private room in our hostel, with private bathroom and of course, hot water. We can provide you with all the veggies you want, but your meals are your responsibility. You are invited to eat with us, but many times we are just not at home, or not willing to cook for everyone. We care a lot about cleanliness, so if this can be a trouble for you, better not to write to us.

    We are living full time here I (Camilo) and my parents (Aura and Antonio). My brother barely comes. We also have 2 beautiful dogs (Nala and Zimba) and 1 cat (Pepa) who always love the extra company.

    We are needing help with our homepage, making some cool videos or photos to promote the place, help in our farm, help with general maintenance, bird-watching related activities, identification of plants, etc.

    It is important to have some previous Spanish knowledge, but this is the perfect place to improve it. I can speak English, German and French but the other members of my family are not so good with foreign languages.

    As I said, we are working slow tourism. So the minimum time stay is 2 months.

    Small cities of Sogamoso and Duitama are at less than 40 minutes, Bogota is at just 3 hours of way, and also in the surroundings are a lot of small towns, with almost none foreigner tourist, so if you want to find a really cool place away of the tourism mass, you are looking at it.
