¿What do we do for a responsible tourism?
At Finca La Jorara we work with local people, promote healthy and organic food from the region, where gastronomic traditions are promoted, positive values of the communities are highlighted and the benefits of tourism contribute to the development of the society.
La Jorarà, is a self-sustainable farm with a variety of organic crops of fruits and vegetables. Our purpose is to be an example for the native and local people of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, on how to find sustenance and provide them and our visitors with food and life experiences for the welfare and prosperity of everyone.
At La Jorará we plant, we grow, we learn, we educate, we dream, we create, and we inspire. Join the cause. In execution there is the I PLANT project that consists in planting a tree at the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta for each reservation at Finca La Jorará. Hundreds of Maguey, Caracoli, Teca and Rubber trees have been planted. We also continue to plant a variety of fruit trees such as avocado, mamonsillo, soursop, papaya, tangerine, orange, lemon, guava, zapote, mamey, mispero, among others.
Also, The ALUNA Project seeks to compensate through tourism the preservation of the Kogi – Arhuaca Indigenous culture through specific welfare programs and the promotion of food planting that seek to highlight natural values. We continue doing this in each travel experience that relates to the cultural interaction with indigenous communities.
The EDUCATION FOR RESPONSIBLE TOURISM Program has been carried out, in which we teach English focused on responsible tourism to children, youth and adults interested in the environment, tourism and languages, in the region of Perico Aguado, Marketalia, Palomino and Don Diego . Likewise, we have involved our collaborators, tour guides and other interested actors.
The mythical and magical Jorará invites you to enjoy a holiday impregnated with nature, ancestral culture, sacred sites and archaeological relics. Do not miss it, get away from traditional tourism and explore new and authentic experiences. We will welcome you with open arms.
