we are 4 french, Maël 26, Loïs 29, Tristan 27 and Benjamin 28 years old.
Our plan is to build a wooden hostel in North Columbia, on the Caribbean coast, next to a small fishing village named Capurgana.
The site is located by the seaside, on a small bay between the tropical forest and the Caribbean sea.
The ground is 2500m² big, we have already built the main structure that will serve as bar, restaurant and meeting / resting area. Around it, we built bungalows that are spread over the entire surface of the ground. around the bungalows we have a garden of fruit trees ...

You will get the opportunity to merge into the Columbian culture since we work everyday with the locals.
You will also get the chance to practice and improve your Spanish with the local workers and your French with us.
Do you fancy living in the heart of nature ? Here, you will find no cars, no motorbikes but only dugout canoes and mules !
we have almost completed the big constructions (bungalow, sanitary ...) we are doing cabinet making (prote, windows, partition ...) we also do painting, varnishing, siding ...
in December we are planning to open our doors!
we will ask for a different help focused on the general maintenance, the home, the gardening, the help to protect the races ...

Most of us sleep in hammocks (it is possible to get a bed).
The sanitary facilities are finished (not all) but you will have showers and toilets functional.
The site is equipped with electricity and wi-fi.
We all have lunch together, dinner can be more private.
we offer 3 meals a 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 .
