Learning & Fun




Paola es una persona comprometida con lo que hace, creo que estar junto a ella no sólo te permite aprender acerca de Colombia, sino acerca de cómo ser alguien con verdadero impacto en la sociedad. Además su familia es muy linda y amable, si querias probar deliciosa comida tradicional, este es tu sitio ideal. Todo esto en un lugar como San Gil, una pequeña ciudad, muy segura, rodeada de lugares de aventura y pueblitos encantadores. Totalmente recomendado!!!
