Additional Terms and Conditions

Thank you for your booking! Just a reminder that check in time is available from 2:00 PM, and check out time is at 11:00 AM. Welcome to Aroha Villana Boutique. It'll be a pleasure to have you. Here's a list of things to do while in Santa Marta:

1. Lost city trek. It's a 4 to 6 day journey into the Sierra Nevada. Tough but wonderful. This is what being off-grid and connected to mother nature is all about. You get to see indigenous communities and in some cases you can share with them.

2. The tayrona beaches. Among more than 100 beaches around, we recommend playa cristal which is the less crowded, and the most beautiful beach (to get there you must take a private ride and a boat), where you can have fresh fish, recharge your energy and do some snorkeling to have a glimpse of coral. Bahia concha is also beautiful and the closest one to the city, but you also need a private ride to get there.

3. Guajira – Punta Gallinas/Cabo de la Vela. Red sands, blue skies, strong winds, delicious food, cultural and ethnic activities surround this dessert but beautiful environment. Take a 3/2 day tour to visit.

4. Minca. It's a little town located in the sierra just 45 min away from Santa Marta. Beautiful view, colder weather, awesome nature, rivers that come from the snow peaks of the sierra, trekking, the cacao route and coffee farms, all in one place!

5. Quinta De San Pedro. It's the hacienda where our libertador Simon Bolivar spent his last days, after the courageous endeavor of freeing 5 countries from the Spanish crown. It's a beautiful place surrounded by gardens and huge trees. You can admire Spanish arquitecture, history and landscaping.

6. Canopy at playa blanca. It's a 10 min boat ride from Santa Marta to a touristic beach where you can spend the day, have fresh fish for lunch and do a new canopy attraction.

7. Historic center. It's the place where you'll find everything, from banks to supermarkets, bars, international food restaurants, the marina, etc, and night clubs with different music you can shake your body to.

8. Scuba diving courses (open water, advanced, rescue, dive master, instructor, fun dives and mini courses). They pick you up at the hostel, have their own boat parked at the international marina which is a few blocks away, and take you to all the coolest places to dive, while keeping an eye on your safety at all times. It includes snacks, transportation (round trip).

9. Motor Bike rentals.

10. Tubing at Don Diego River. Close to palomino, it's a very peaceful river with crystal clear waters, where you do a walk with a tube and ride down the stream to get a glimpse of iguanas, birds, howling monkeys, ending where the river meets the caribbean ocean!

11. Paddle, kayak and surf.

12. Paso del mango. Close to Minca, they also have Cacao tours (learn to make real, pure organic chocolate!), and appreciate nature while at it. Horse back rides and bird watching is a must here!

13. Souvenirs stores, relaxing massages (specially recommended after the Lost City Trek) to recover and heal your body and soul.

    Great location, ideal for going anywhere you want for the night out or places to eat/chill. Near the best plaza - parque de Los novios - in the city. Bring you own lock since they don't provide any. Kitchen is nice to have with fridge, but only a stovetop and not nice to cook in really. Staff was friendly, but there were so many staff and their friends, it didn't add to the environment and was hard to tell what was allowed... The pool is amazing and so necessary in super hot Santa Marta. Was

    The staff are nice but this is not a good hostel. The building was having a lot of issues — the ceiling was leaking onto peoples’ beds (although I think they were moved to a different room), bathroom was flooded and water wasn’t working at times. There weren’t enough lockers for everyone. The pool looked way too dirty to swim in. The hostel offers free breakfast but the staff were too disorganized to make it happen. Not worth saving a couple dollars.
