    The land is 2500m², we have a main structure which serves as a bar, restaurant and meeting / rest area. Around it, bungalows spread over the entire surface of the land. around the bungalows we have a garden of fruit trees ..

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Though the hostel is located in the jungle, the beach and its activities are very close (3 min walking).
    If you like seaworld, you can take your fins, your snorkel and your diving mask and go swimming in the beautiful El Aguacate bay.
    If you go scuba-diving, you may be able to see small reef-sharks, turtles, sting-rays and all kinds of fish and colorful corals.
    And why not fishing with Capurgana fishermen ?

    If you are more of a hiking-in-the-forest fellow, don’t forget to look up to see monkeys, sloths, toucans, raptors, parrots, haras and so on…. !
    On your way, you will also cross impressive ants, as well as all kinds of frogs, spiders and even some felines if you are lucky !
    Going to Capurgana or Acandi by boat will take you 10 to 20 minutes.
    Of course, you can also walk there, which will take longer but will enable you to appreciate a nice and sporty trail.
    We are currently working on a « chilling area » at the hostel and soon you will be able to enjoy volleyball, basketball and boules fields .
