Río San Salvador
Our ranch is located in Vereda Río San Salvador, approximately 7km from Palomino. Vereda Río San Salvador is a small community of farmers, administrators of big farms and some foreign investors. But mostly just farmers, that come from hours walking down to the school or church. We are surrounded by many rivers, that most time of the year are our biggest friends. But during rainy season it can change in our biggest fear. Floodings that destroy the crops, take cattle or make you wake up at night to run upwards a nearby hill. A lot of farmers are experiencing the drastic climate change and the power of nature.
With our tours, we help in supporting the maintaining of the road, that gets washed away every year by the river floadings. We give jobs to our neighbours to help maintain their families. We started a project to plant native trees to slowly recover the jungle on our own piece of land and with that help other neigbours to do so as well. Planting trees and vetiver grass helps with maintaining rain water in our own grounds and against erosion of the river banks.
A lot of big plans and by joining one of our tours you help us in the process.
