  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Although the hostel is located in the jungle, the beach and its activities are very close (3 min walk).
    If you like the marine world, you can take your flippers, snorkel and diving mask and go swimming in the beautiful bay of El Aguacate.
    If you go scuba diving you might be able to see small reef sharks, turtles, stingrays and all kinds of colorful fish and coral.

    If you are more of a hiker in the forest, don't forget to look up to see monkeys, sloths, toucans, birds of prey, parrots, studs, etc...!
    On your way, you will also come across impressive ants, as well as all kinds of frogs, spiders and even some felines if you are lucky!
    Going to Capurgana by boat will take you 15 minutes.
    Of course, you can also get there on foot, which will take longer (1 hour) but will allow you to enjoy a pleasant and sporty route.
    at the hostal you can also enjoy the volleyball and basketball court!
