    Good Host
  • Descripción


    Myself, my two young children and our two dogs live in a peaceful paradise just 15 minutes walk from the town of Amaga and 60 minutes by bus to the buzzing city of Medellin.

    We are working on creating an ecological hostel, situated on a beautiful hill surrounded by luscious green mountains where the weather is warm all year round and a variety of wild birds can be spotted.

    We are open to all suggestions for how to develop the project, if you have an idea you would like to work on we would be happy to hear and, time provided, let you see it through!

    The finca has plenty of outdoor areas with hammocks in the shade if you want to relax, listen to the birds sing and read or admire the view. You can also explore the area, climb the surrounding mountains and hike around the surrounding areas visiting local villages and viewpoints over Amaga.

    Myself and my children do not speak English however we would all like to learn. So a level of Spanish that allows you to understand us (even if it is with the use of google translate at times!) is necessary as we also hope you can help us to learn English.

    One of the most important things for us is to help our family learn English. Daily lessons of two to three hours would be very beneficial.

    Other tasks include:
    Gardening and general cleaning up of the finca
    Cooking daily meals for the family and guests
    Grocery shopping in the town
    Cleaning and general help around the hostel
    Cultural and language exchanges in the local community
    If you have skills or ideas to contribute to the internet presence of the hostel this can be useful too
