  • Description


    We are an italo-colombian couple starting a nice project: an Hostel located on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Pacific Coast of Colombia: El Almejal beach in El Valle, a small town near Bahia Solano. The hostel lies right between the jungle and the incredibly beautiful Pacific Ocean. You can therefore walk right on to the beach directly in front of the hostel or enjoy the local flora and fauna in the jungle with a tour. We have areas to rest and relax where the sounds (and view!) of the ocean and jungle meet each other, creating an incredible experience. There are three shared rooms. Two for six people, and one for four people. We also have one private room, our Suite” with his own bathroom and shower. In The House you can use a fully furnished kitchen to cook your own food

    Unfortunately El Valle is a little bit tricky to get to. You can either fly from Medellin or Cali to Bahia Solano and take a TuckTuck to El Valle which takes about 45 minutes or you can do it the adventureous way and come by boat (every tuesday and saturday) from Buenaventura also to Bahia Solano.
