  • Description


    We're 3 travelers that fell in love with the magic of the mountains of La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. We came 6 years ago to work in our project and we open the doors of our house in December 2016 trying to bring a magical experience for travelers.

    Our place is located near Minca town, surrounded by waterfalls and amazing views.

    We have a marvelous Colombian Team, who would welcome you as a part of our family. In our hostel we love animals, so we have 3 dogs and 2 cats (that you'll adore)

    The project we´re running is a hostel secluded in the mountains, at the moment we DO NOT manage permaculture or farming projects :)
