During my week at Quinta de Fagua, I felt like in my own little house at the heart of the moutains.. :) Los Farallones del Palacio are great to climb (but, god, tiring), the view is awwwesome ! The host, Jorge, is really nice and wants to make sure you feel at home. The tasks are easy, and the air is pure :) So many thanks !

Beautiful and remote place 2 hours up north from Bogota (by bus).

Very good place to spend some quiet time, connect with nature and explore the surrounding mountains.

The work is very reasonable and basic (cleaning, greeting guests, helping with whatever needs to be done, ...) and not to much.

Jorge is a very welcoming and friendly host.

I felt very much welcomed and at home and I could recharge my batteries for my future travels.

Thanks a lot! Highly recommended!

Me encantó el voluntariado entre todo ese verdor. La naturaleza alrededor y la lluvia de estrellas que se ve en las noches despejadas son todo un espectáculo. Aparte, las tareas son sencillas. Atender a los huéspedes, hacerles check-in, cambio de sábanas y una limpieza básica. En mi caso, también aporté algunas fotografías y texto para las redes sociales del hostal aunque no las subí por falta de WiFi, pero eso también ayuda a desconectarse bastante, que es parte del encanto. Hay varias opciones de senderismo en la zona, y se puede practicar caminar en la cuerda floja (si eres capaz, jeje).

Cuando llegué al hostal mi mayor gratitud fue ver esos farallones, me sentí privilegiada de poder contemplarlos todas las mañanas. El viento, las aves, las vacas, las personas, el paisaje y las rocas fueron hermosa compañía. Gracias a Jorge por su hospitalidad y paciencia ante mi aprendizaje. Recomiendo este majestuoso destino como un forma de introspección y meditación. Me gustó mucho la experiencia espero volver en un futuro a recorrer los caminos con Pollux la perrita de la casa, para hablar de las estrellas por la noche y encontrar abrigo en la fogata. Muy buena y recomendada experiencia.
