We are a small startup motorcycle tour and rental agency that shares it's location with Drop Bear Hostel, one of the oldest hostels in Santa Marta, Colombia. As such, all of our volunteers get to enjoy the perks of living at a bustling and popular hostel, free bed, onsite bar, wifi, pool, TV/chill-out room and kitchen, but with a job that's a little more interesting than your standard bartender/reception volunteer position. Volunteering with us will give travellers the opportunity to get to know Colombia and Santa Marta in a way that most travellers otherwise would not. Practicing your Spanish with mechanics, helping deliver bikes to customers, learning about motorcycle maintenance/repairs and exploring areas surrounding Santa Marta that are only accessible by motorcycle (or a large amount of hiking!). Volunteers will also enjoy free use of all our motorcycles/scooters during their free days, as well as during slow periods during the day, and will receive small discounts at many other businesses that we work closely with as well. Last but not least, the majority of our volunteers will have the opportunity to come free of charge on one of our guided tours when we have enough clients that our lead guide may require a second set of hands. Mostly simple stuff, helping checkin clients, getting drinks, preparing bikes etc etc, and all expenses (food, drinks, gasoline etc etc) are all paid for as well during the tour.
Our staff is made up of a mix of Colombian, Estadounidense, Venezuelan and Australian owners and employees, all of whom are generally very laid back people. We have all travelled a lot both through South America and to other continents, and have varying levels of English/Spanish proficiency, although everybody speaks both to at least some extent. We're all within the ages of 25-35 and love the outdoors and adventure sports, as well as the occasional party, all of which you will be invited to join in on whenever we have a team outing, however there's no obligation to do so if you don't feel like it!
Spent a month with this guys and I had an amazing experience.
They are all super welcoming, experienced and fun.
I’ve been riding (road) for over 10 years, but never had a truly off road experience until I joined them. Went to a couple tours up to the mountains around Santa Marta, delivered bikes to some nearby Hostels, leaned a bit about basic maintenance, etc...
Thank you all for the opportunity 🤗
