  • Description


    Some years ago, on the outskirts of the city, our family acquired this space as an escape from the city. Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, we are located 40 mins from Santa Marta city and extremely close to destinations such as Tayrona Park, Quebrada Valencia and lots of rivers (Mendihuaca, Guachaca, Don Diego, Buritaca, Palomino) . Over these 15 years, with the help of many people we have totally renovated and added to our weekend home and now turned it into a hostel surrounded by nature; offering guests a space surrounded by tranquility, relaxation and harmony. With your visit we hope to provide you with a comfortable place where we can all get to know each other and create beautiful memories here.

    Hace algunos años, a las afueras de la ciudad, nuestra familia adquirió este espacio como escape de la ciudad. Localizados en las estribaciones de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, estamos en un punto medio entre la ciudad de Santa Marta y destinos como el Parque Tayrona, Quebrada Valencia y ríos de la zona (Mendihuaca, Guachaca, Don Diego, Buritaca, Palomino). Durante estos 17 años, con la ayuda de muchas personas hemos recuperado y construido un lugar rodeado de naturaleza; buscando poder brindar a todas aquellas personas que nos visitan un espacio rodeado de tranquilidad, relajamiento y armonía. Es por esto que con vuestra visita esperamos brindarles un lugar cómodo en donde podamos conocer un poco de ustedes y crearles un bonito recuerdo .

    We are 20 km away from Santa Marta (the bus will drop you right outside the hostel), near the hostel is the entrance to Tayrona Park. In your free time you can take many trips to beaches, rivers, you can hike or just chill in our hostel in the pool or the hammock! We are constantly improving our hostel and are open to any ideas you may give us. A very friendly local family lives in the hostel and they will be happy to interact with you and teach you about their culture and local area, and we hope we can count on your help for the time you are here.
