Hola Amigos! We are Juan Camilo and Daniel. We are a language school in beautiful San Carlos, Colombia. We teach Spanish to students from around the world as well as offer English classes to locals. Our school offers a unique opportunity to get off the tourist trail and experience the real Colombia, as you’ll be fully immersed in a town with little-to-no international tourist traffic. We believe this is the best way to learn and understand a new culture and a new language.
San Carlos is a small town near Guatapé, and is easily accessible via bus from Guatapé or Medellín. The town is surrounded by breathtaking nature, including hiking trails, fincas, rivers, and over a hundred waterfalls with crystal clear water where people all over Colombia come to swim, relax, and connect with the nature around them. It is an ideal place for cost-conscious travelers who want to learn Spanish, and do so while experiencing the natural landscapes and scenery of this beautiful country. Breathe in the fresh air, explore the town plaza, go for a hike, take a swim, launch off a 15-meter waterfall, and connect yourself with nature—all while taking classes from extremely qualified, Colombian native teachers.
We have been receiving a lot of inquiries and we love it. In order to continue improving we want to increase our number of volunteers so if you do not meet the requirements for the full volunteer position we have more flexible options available like Volunteer-Student. Many of our volunteers quickly become friends and choose to stay longer, and come back to visit. Both welcomed and encouraged :)

You will have the opportunity to get an authentic experience in one of the most beautiful places in Colombia, San Carlos. Google San Carlos to learn more. San Carlos is a popular tourist town for Colombians, but it has yet to reach the radar of foreign travelers. For this reason, it’s the perfect destination to experience the wondrous nature while immersing yourself in genuine Colombian culture. You will be able to (and encouraged to) participate in the different adventures, excursions, and immersions which will connect you with the local culture and the picturesque nature surrounding San Carlos and finally living in a farm gives you the chance to feel out of the crowd, living peacefully and living nature.
We are continuing to grow and we love the work that our volunteers have done thus far. We want to continue attracting people who are passionate about their work, learning, and life! Everything about this school is an adventure and that is why we truly love what we do.

The school is located on a farm surrounded by nature, lots of birds and beautiful sunsets, we live with a little dog, a sassy cat, and some cows.
Volunteers will stay in a shared room with bunk beds. You will share a bathroom with other guests and students, and will have access to amenities such as wi-fi, kitchen, laundry, etc. Lunch is also included at a local restaurant every day (Monday-Friday).
Transportation cost (a bus from Medellin to San Carlos is ~25.000 COP) must be covered by the volunteer. You will be responsible for dinner each day as a way to encourage you to become familiar with the town and its friendly citizens. This is also a great way to improve your Spanish skills!
Even living on a farm, the transportation around the town is really easy there are public transportation and the school has his own transportation (minivan), the road from the farm to the central square is very short and easy to move because it is flat and paved (on a bicycle it will take you around 30 minutes)
