Au Pair in Colombia


Being an Au Pair in Colombia is not just a great experience, it’s also a way of discovering a unique country known for its friendly people, its world-class cuisine and its magical landscapes.

Colombia is the second most biodiverse country in the world, after only Brazil which is ten times its size. It is one of only 17 ‘megadiverse’ countries in the world. Also is the only country in South America that has coastlines on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

This country, conquered by the Spaniards in the 15th century, has a unique mixture of customs from different parts of the world. From Punta Gallinas to Leticia this place is full of surprises.

You will get to know an incredible variety of ecosystems in only one place; from amber deserts near the North coast to deep colourful jungles and peaceful mountains from the Andes.

There’s no such thing as boredom here. From some of the best yearly carnivals in the world to an astonishing variety of sports, culture and nightlife activities all around the big cities and almost every small town.

As your tasks, expectations and working schedule will be agreed with the host family in Colombia, our team will help you out with everything else (visas, permits and paperwork) so you can make the most of your new home.

This world-class program is centred on three main different benefits for you:

  1. Learn Spanish the best way possible!
    Learn by attending lessons with native teachers and practising in a friendly environment with a second family selected just for you. At Hola People you can start a plan in Colombia from 3 to 24 months long!
  2. Enjoy Colombia’s culture, food and places
    Colombia is a very beautiful and exotic place, with lots of activities to do and places to visit. Get to know more about their world-class cuisine, enjoy their diverse music and traditions and learn more being part of your host family’s daily life.
  3. Hola People got you covered!
    Apart from enjoying a friendly stay with a Colombian family, our team helps you out with great benefits like social security, paid vacations, pocket money (between 165 and 180 USD/month) in local currency, a SIM card and transport card with an initial charge, and support for your visa application and other paperwork.
