  • In our new year party we will hear all night long, and maybe longer, Colombian music.
  • Most of the family  sleeps in the farm and there are not enough beds, so nobody has a bed or mattress assigned, we just sleep in the empty bed or mattress we find in the house. If you don't want it, you can book a hotel.

What you should know

  • The music will be very laud, so if you decide to stay in the farm, make sure it doesn't bothers you while sleeping.
  • As you will be another family member, if you decide to sleep in the farm, you won't have any assigned bed or mattress, you sleep in the empty one you find.
  • Many of the family members have dogs and they will join us too, so if you don't like dogs, this is not for you.
  • The temperature will range from 14 Celsius degrees at night to 26-28 Celsius degrees during the day.
