Is it possible to volunteer in a hostel in Medellin?
Yes, it’s possible and also an awesome way to get to know Colombia! Medellín is the capital of the country, with more than 2 million inhabitants. The “City of Eternal Spring” is famous for its nice temperate weather. A cheap way to spend some time in Medellin without spending much is to volunteer in a hostel in Medellin. You can’t miss the famous view of the city from the Metrocable, the Antioquia Museum and the several parks in this valley city.
Colombia is the only South American country with both Pacific and Caribbean coastlines. So, although it isn’t exactly famous for surfing, it’s a country with great beaches. There are many excellent spots on both coasts. A volunteer who wants to surf in Colombia will have a great time at Guachalito Beach, one of the best parts of Colombia for surfers, along with Pradomar and Barranquilla - which is a popular surfing spot for the entire Caribbean region. The high waves of Juanchaco are for the advanced surfers. El Valle, Punta Sur e San Andres will attract all kinds of visitors.
