If you exchange work for accommodation in Colombia, you can help an ecovillage and maintain crops and gardens, learn about organic farming, reforestation and environmental conservation. If you are interested in volunteering in coffee farms, Colombia is home to many international coffee brands, so you would learn from the best. It’s also possible to do other kinds of volunteering, such as helping with maintenance of a yoga village or a hostel.
Colombia is a country with a lot of potential, but also losing forests annually to deforestation! It’s the country with the second-highest biodiversity in the world, only behind Brazil ;) There are amazing places to visit like Cartagena and Medellin. Also Prado - only 4h from the capital Bogota - is a countryside village next to a huge lake where you’ll find a large number of water and tropical mountains ideal for climbing, swimming, trekking and hiking. Volunteering in Colombia is great opportunity to get to know local communities and farmers and learn about nature in Central America.
