We are a group of people, mainly from Berlin Germany, who has acquired a piece of land in beautiful Buritaca in the colombian carribean. The land lies on the tropical foothills of the sierra nevada de santa marta 500m air line from the beach.
Our aim is to create a base for intercultural exchange, art and sustainable living. With the help of our neighbors, we are building a guest house, which will, once finished, provide the most stunning view from tayrone national park to palomino. We are well connected with the locals and are interested in running a sustainable tourism project, respectfully interacting with local culture and traditions.
The project is in the initial phase. Right now accomodation is in a camp (tents and hammocks), since no buildings are finished, yet. We will update the following list of tasks, that we work on presently or in near future, frequently. The projects that are already ongoing are marked with a *.

- building the road from the main road to the property*
- construction of the first buildings usinf bamboo or wood (communal kitchen, community rooms, first guest cabanas)
- construction of the solar system
- construction
- instalation of water pipeline
- cooking and maintenance of the camp (always)

Volunteers with and without professional background are welcome. We are happy about creative people, who bring ideas and good vibes. Camping is of course free and basic, vegetarian communal meals will also be provided. If you are interested in staying with us and helping with one of the above tasks, please write a short message about yourself and possibly your skills.

cheers,
Los Monos
