  • Description


    We are a Colombian-Uruguayan couple with two beautiful puppies (frodo and khaleesi) and two cats (legolas and obi).
    We are building and developing the project of our dreams, to build a cozy, comfortable and pleasant hostel for everyone to feel at home. The Camping/hostel is located in Palomino, one of the most beautiful villages in the north of Colombia on the Caribbean Coast, with two rivers that meet the beach from where u can see the snow sierra.
    three years ago we started this wonderful project with a lot of effort and dedication.
    We are a kind couple with a desire to meet people ready to share and work in this simple and friendly place.
