We have one private rooms for you, we have normal electric power and internet coverage (on some points of our place more stronger signal and less stronger in other zones, but we can do videocalls by whatsapp without issues most of time).
We provide you the food.
We buy food on Boyacá and Chone market. And we can eat our cheese, vegetables, fruits....
Closer of home, we have our cow pen, with other animals like chikens, pigs... And there is a small barn too.
Appreciation - take time to enjoy the local tropical fruits, the beautiful sun, the showers, the stunning sunsets and night skies, learning different languages, and being part of a farming family. There are nearby waterfalls, and cacao processing facilities are are interesting to check out, also the beach is just an hour bus ride away.
Commitment.- keeping your promises, being on time, don’t mind being out of your comfort zone, being proactive in daily tasks, enjoy challenges and being busy most of the day.
