The Experience

Enjoy our nature, where you can find peace, chocolate and nature sounds, around of rivers, mountains, where you can appreciate the Colombian Andes with a vegetation like in the Amazons, with huge trees complete green all year, every year, surrounded of birds with many colors and a lot of wild animales (of course, no dangerous). This area is famous in Colombia for our cocoa beans, used for chocolate makers to make the most delicious chocolates.

I had such a good time! <3 The opportunity I got to learn about the farm, chocolate, nature, living and working on a farm was more than I expected. For me it was immersion in the culture in the countryside of colombia. I have grown so fond of the family and they welcomed me so warmly, giving me insight into their daily lives. The work and knowledge of Miguel and Sergio is really good and valuable, and an honor to get to know it. I am very greatful and recommend this experience to anybody seeking the pure and willing to dive in. (And to practice spanish obviously ;))

It was AWESOME. The most peaceful i've felt in my.entore life. when i had a problem the whole entire family went out of their way to solve it. the dogs, the kindness from the family anf all who were at the farm. it was an awesome experience and later down the line when my spanish is better i hope tp return if possible! i will say i didn't da lot, but it provided an AMAZING opportunity to connect with myself. everything was calm everyday. my only qualm is the bathroom& shower wassometimes a little gross to use.

I had a wonderful time at the farm! Miguel and his family are very caring and wonderful people. Miguel taught me a lot about the farm and how to work with it, as well as teaching me more about Colombia and its relationship with the farm. The food is great (you get 4 meals a day) and the farm is a wonderful place if you are looking for some time away from society. Plus, I got to eat a lot of one of the best chocolate in the world!
