  • Descripción


    We are a Colombian-Uruguayan couple with two beautiful puppies (frodo and khaleesi) and one cat (legolas).
    We are building and developing the project of our dreams, to build an ecological, comfortable and pleasant space 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.
    Four 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 help out in this simple and friendly place.
