I had such an amazing experience at Palomino Sunrise! The hotel, the staff and the location were all amazing. Palomino is a gorgeous & safe town.
The work is so easy, the rooms are nice and all of the staff are super nice and welcoming.
You definitely need to have more than conversational Spanish language skills, as none of the full time staff speak English. Nonetheless, I managed to make it work & made some beautiful friendships!
I would recommend this experience to everyone looking for a volunteering position in Colombia.

Palomino sunrise became my home super quick. All the people are so nice and welcoming. It was just a fun time. Brayan, Leidys, Paola, Davi ,Jonathan and Hegel they are just the best. They welcomed me and made me feel like a part of their team. The hostel is super nice and if there is anything you need they’ll help you. Palomino is a small beach town and the vibe is super chilled. I would recommend this place 100 %. I also improved my Spanish while I was here which is a plus’. The work is very easy and the guest are super nice. Thank you for this amazing experience! I will be definitely back.

This experience was truly amazing, I came to Palomino not knowing anybody and barely speaking Spanish and left fluent with a town full of friends. Hegel and Bryan are the most welcoming person you can think of, they will always find ways to make you feel at home. The other members of the staff are always smiling and with a great joy of life, whether it is Monica, Paola or Yilmer! The tasks are pretty easy, and the staff is always willing to switch shifts or do something else if you dont like doing one of them:) The place is beautiful, really peaceful, and they also have the best wifi in town!

Las instalaciones son muy bonitas, es un hermoso lugar para conectar con personas de todos los países, para practicar el inglés y hacer amigos tanto los huespedes como las personas del equipo con las que estoy muy agradecida por su apoyo y por su disposición. Me voy muy feliz del trabajo que realice en este lugar y de las lindas personas que conocí.

Se los recomiendo de todo corazón, no pude elegir un mejor lugar para hacer mi primer voluntariado. Todos los chicos del equipo son maravillosos y te hacen sentir como en casa. Me gusta mucho que desde el inicio las horas de trabajo fueron muy claras! También me ayudaron a organizar unos días libres.
Las tareas son muy sencillas como ayuda en la recepción o en el restaurante. Me voy feliz .
