we are 4 French, Maël 28, Loïs 31, Tristan 29 and Benjamin 30 years old.
We built a wooden hostel in northern Colombia, on the Caribbean coast, next to a small fishing village called Capurgana.
The site is located by the sea, on a small bay between the tropical forest and the Caribbean Sea.
The land is 2500m², we have a main structure which serves as a bar, restaurant and meeting / rest area. Around it, bungalows spread over the entire surface of the land. around the bungalows we have a garden of fruit trees ..

You will have the opportunity to blend in with Colombian culture as we work with the locals every day.
You will also have the chance to practice and improve your Spanish with the local workers and your French with us.
Do you want to live in the heart of nature? Here you will not find cars, only canoes and mules!
construction is complete!
we ask for help focused on general maintenance,
welcoming tourists, gardening, helping to carry the groceries, carrying groceries to the bar, to the kitchen, setting up restaurant tables, painting or some repair projects... the needs are varied and depend on the time, the number of tourists present in the hotel ...
you will sleep in the hostal dormitories, sanitary facilities are available outside the dormitory.
The site is equipped with electricity and wi-fi.
We all have lunch together, dinner can be more private.
we offer 3 meals per day.
Though the hostel is located in the jungle, the beach and its activities are very close (3 min walking).
If you like seaworld, you can take your fins, your snorkel and your diving mask and go swimming in the beautiful El Aguacate bay.
If you go scuba-diving, you may be able to see small reef-sharks, turtles, sting-rays and all kinds of fish and colorful corals.
And why not fishing with Capurgana fishermen ?
If you are more of a hiking-in-the-forest fellow, don’t forget to look up to see monkeys, sloths, toucans, raptors, parrots, haras and so on…. !
On your way, you will also cross impressive ants, as well as all kinds of frogs, spiders and even some felines if you are lucky !
Going to Capurgana or Acandi by boat will take you 10 to 20 minutes.
Of course, you can also walk there, which will take longer but will enable you to appreciate a nice and sporty trail.
We are currently working on a « chilling area » at the hostel and soon you will be able to enjoy volleyball, basketball and boules fields .
