  • Description

    Description

    We are a family trio of farmers. I live, my partner and my 17 year old daughter. We are open minded and without prejudice!
    Our farm is on an island in the Amazon Rainforest called, Combú Island on the banks of the river Guamá, located 5km from the capital Belém. Here we work with the collection of Cocoa, Acai, extraction of acai palm and also artisanal fishing for family consumption. . We also just opened a camping, because the demand for tourists for places like this is increasing intensely, so we decided to add to the business. We also promote occasional parties, with local rhythms and also Reggae. Here our volunteer finds a little of everything; work, culture, music, dance, adventure and quiet. So what do you think about living it here?
    We like to receive travelers and show our way of life and exchange knowledge with everyone, because living with the different is always very rewarding.

    Somos um trio de agricultores familiar. Moramos eu, minha companheira e minha filha com 17 anos. Temos mente aberta e sem preconceitos!
    Nossa fazenda fica em uma Ilha na floresta Amazônica Chamada, Ilha do Combú as margens do rio Guamá, localizado a 5km da capital Belém. Aqui trabalhamos com a coleta do Cacau, Açaí, extração de palmito de açaí e também a pesca artesanal para consumo familiar. Aqui nosso voluntario encontra um pouco de cada coisa; trabalho, cultura, musica, aventura e sossego. Então, o que acha de viver isso aqui?
    Gostamos de receber viajantes e mostrar nosso modo de vida e trocar conhecimento com todos, pois a convivência com o diferente é sempre muito gratificante.
