About
This project was started by a group of peasant families who have decided leave aside activities with a negative impact on the environment (like intensive agriculture and livestock) and work in tourism. These families saw that the place what has always been their home is a paradise of landscapes, biodiversity and cultural experiences. And now they want to show this paradise, and everything it offers, to the rest of the world. This trek is outside of others tourist treks saturated with visitors, wildlife full, ancient rainforests, impressive waterfalls, friendly people and stunning views of the mountains and the Caribbean Sea. Of course, to get to the most beautiful places requires great effort, hiking along steep slopes, grass fields, forests and mountains. As such, it is necessary to be in a good physical and mental condition. You will be rewarded at the end of each day, when we will be welcomed, eat and sleep in the peasants houses where we will have a cultural exchange.

Om te beginnen, dit kleine bedrijf bied je een onverwachte en unieke ervaring aan. Ik had enkel verwacht dat we verschillende dagen gingen stappen. Aangevuld met in scène gezette ontmoetingen. Maar ik was verkeerd.
Vanaf de start, vond ik het avontuurlijk. Ik dacht dat ik deze trip alleen zou maken. Maar Leo, de gids, was na een paar uur samen stappen al meteen een zeer vertrouwd gezelschap. En na een dag al een vriend.
Niet alleen de hikes, maar ook het verblijf bij de gastgezinnen waren bijzondere ervaringen. Je gaat niet op een luxe cruise. Maar met een goede ingesteldheid wordt dit een onvergetelijke trip.
Niets is fake, maar super echt en authentiek. Mijn laatste gastgezin had al een maand lang geen toerist meer over de vloer gehad. Ik zocht iets heel uniek. En ik heb dat volledig gekregen.
Misschien lag het aan mijn enthousiasme, maar ik heb ook een mooie uitleg meegekregen over het hele koffie proces. Enkel door wat mee te helpen met de koffie selectie.
Bedankt Leo, Ik hoop van harte dat nog vele mensen van uw trip mogen genieten. Anderzijds hoop ik ook dat je het uniek en exclusief karakter van uw trip kan bewaren.
Lieven
