Also we are located 15 minutes driving from Tayrona Park and 10 minutes from the entrance of Lost City.

    We are a sustainable resort, with a culinary plant-based restaurant, natural pool, ponds, permaculture gardens, food forest, a big river side yoga shala en a spa. We also host a lot of retreats and events. We have build the project with natural materials like graduate (Colombian Bamboo) local clay, sustainable wood and local palm. We have solar panels, use a hydro pump, recycle all the grey water, and we do many more thing to be as sustainable as possible. Our main obtain of the project is to demonstrate many different ways to live a more sustainable life.

    For who are we looking?
    We are looking for someone with experience teaching English (even better if certified English teacher!), with the objective of teaching the language to our local workers, a beautiful experience of cultural exchange.

    We are looking for a marketing/sales expert who can help to grow our visibility online and off-line

    We are also looking for an experienced permaculturist with art skills to help us maintain and develop new ideas in the area of permaculture as well as help us paint signs for the gardens.

    What we offer:
    Volunteering with us means free accommodation, private cabin with shared bathroom and shared kitchen and includes lunch and dinner on working days, free use of the staff kitchen for plant based food, use of the natural pools, yoga shala, river and all facilities. The work will be 5 days a week, around 5 hours a day. On your days off you are free to go anywhere. We have a very quiet atmosphere and have a lot of respect for nature and don't allow loud music and noise.

    On the 1,5 hectares of land you find an incredible amount of tropical fruits like lots of banana and platano, avocado, mango, pineapple, papaya, yuca, lemon, guayabaya and much more. You will also experience the wildlife, like lots of hemmingbirds, toucans, butterflies, squirrels, iguanas, Iizards, many colorful birds and some crazy jungle insects and sometimes even armadillos or monkeys!

    In the area there is a lot to do. There is a beautiful white beach on the river, 5 minutes walking from the land. The carribean coast *where you can surf is a 15 minutes drive on a mototaxi (the famous Costeno beach is really close by!) Other things you can do: hike in 40 min to a beautiful waterfall, go to Tyrona park (20 minutes drive), go to the famous hostel El Rio where you can do river tubing (15 minutes drive) and the start of the Lost City track is also near by.

    How to go?
    Santa Marta is a 1 hour drive and there are busses going all day from and to Santa Marta (Mercado) along the coast and back and stops in our town Guachaca. From there it's a 20 minutes walk up the river (left side of the river, uphill) or you can take a motortaxi, ask for Yay or Finca Kelly ( 5 minutes drive)
