We are Jane and Felipe and we are setting up a new hostel here in San Gil. Jane is from the UK and Felipe is Colombian. We have been running a hostel here is San Gil for the last 3 years but it's time for a change! The house is a beautiful hacienda on an organic coffee farm up in the hills about 5km from San Gil. We are surrounded by tranquility and wonderful nature, birds, butterflies and hummingbirds.
The house has previously been used as a hostel but needs some love and attention before we can open again. We have a veggie garden that always needs work along with chickens, cats and dogs.

We offer the chance to get away from it all in this beautiful rural location in exchange for help getting the hostel ready to open. We both speak English and Spanish so are able offer language practice if you need.
We are looking for volunteers (preferably a couple) handy with a paint brush (general painting and murals), an interest in diy and gardening would be fab too!

San Gil is around 8 hours from Bogota by bus and around 12 hours from Santa Marta or Medellin. On your days off there are lots of activities for those who like adrenaline, such as Paragliding or Rafting, but also other villages close by to visit for those that just want a nice walk.

We have lots of space for campervans but need to be capable of off-roading (narrow, mostly unpaved) for around 2km to get here.
