About Us

We are a social travel agency and collaborate with various Colombian NGO's, located in the city of Bucaramanga, Colombia. Bucara Voluntours has been created in 2023 to reunite the volunteering options of our foundations. Together, we offer an all-in-one volunteering package containing volunteering at various of our foundations, enriched with Spanish lessons, Salsa classes and many explore & diversion activities. 

We are also a Spanish Academy for travellers in Bucaramanga. Spanish Classes can be booked apart from the Volunteering program.

Our goal is to show Colombia and in particular the beautiful city of Bucarmanga to our participants the most authentic way. With Bucara Voluntours, you will see places and meet people you would never do travelling on your own.
