    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.

    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 all of the daily adventures, excursions, and immersions which will connect you with the local culture and the picturesque nature surrounding San Carlos.

    We are continuing to grow and we love the work that our volunteers have done thus far. Each person that we have met is a living adventure and 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.

    In order to continue improving our experience, we ask for a 4 weeks commitment or at least the time necessary to complete your contribution to the school. Many of our volunteers quickly become friends and choose to stay longer, and come back to visit. Both welcomed and encouraged :)

    We particularly look for people who have expertise in the following areas:

    - Digital Marketing - Experience with search engine optimization (SEO), paid search or paid social advertising.
    - Social Media - Creating content and sharing across networks.
    - Graphic design - website or printed marketing assets creation
    - Video and Photography ( is necessary to have your own camera and editing gear )
    - English skills (writing, editing, blogpost)
    - Education (Teaching English to locals)
    - Artwork (painting, handicraft)
    - House improvement ( decoration, interior design, building)
    - community manager ( community projects, project management)
    - Adventure manager (studies related with safety, first aids, canyoning, swimming rescue, biology)

    (for the areas above studies or experience is requested. We love people who are passionate about what they do)

    Other skills and ideas are welcome!

    In addition to taking on one or two of these projects, we expect all volunteers to help with the following:

    Cleaning and organizing the house
    Guest relations

    In your application choose one on these areas and please tell us about your skills and background. At the end of the day, we just want people who are eager and passionate about their work!

    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).

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    Transportation cost (a bus from Medellin to San Carlos is ~20.000 COP) must be covered by the volunteer. You will be responsible for breakfast and 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!
