Property Description

Welcome to the Creo Ecolodge project, we are a peaceful, remote hostel located in the mountains (1800m above sea level) surrounded by beautiful nature. Within a 30-minute walk or 10-minute tuk-tuk ride from Jardin, our guests come here to disconnect, enjoy nature and share our simple lifestyle.

At Creo, breakfast is an important moment of the day that we love to share it with our guests from all over the world. Breakfast varies each day but generally includes homemade sourdough bread, homemade jams and either eggs, veggie sauce or guacamole. To drink, we offer local coffee or tea, fresh homemade juice and 'kefir', which is a probiotic healthy fermented fruit drink. We also offer delicious homemade granola for those that want a little extra. Breakfast is included and vegetarian dinner is available for 12 000 COP.

There are a lot of hiking spots and different outdoor activities around the ecolodge, in fact, you’ll need a week to discover all the sites this place has to offer. Those include, waterfalls, lookout points, wild hikes, caves, horse riding, paragliding, organic coffee farm visit, waterfall rappelling and more.
The ecological part of our project is based on different aspects: a natural grown vegetable garden which uses permaculture principles, eco constructions and homemade, organic, local food. We also support and facilitate animal friendly ecotourism. Our ambition is to slowly reach a sufficient self-sustainability. We aim to grow and harvest all our food to ensure our meals are chemical-free and respectful of animals and the environment.

We have yoga mats available at all times for your practice. Our guests and staff often practice yoga and meditation together as a group - these sessions are donation-based.

We have set up Creo to allow our guests to reconnect with nature, therefore, we don't have WIFI but it's available at Café Jardin (20 min walk from Creo).

We are a small capacity ecolodge and function differently than most hostels. We don’t have a classic hostel reception but are here to personally welcome you when you arrive. So, if you want to live an authentic, eco-friendly and unique experience through nature, we’d love to welcome you. If you want a complete immersion in our way of life, a long stay is recommended.

*To be taken into account*

- Our ecolodge doesn’t have a garbage system 🚮 ♻ and out of respect for the environment, we kindly ask that you reduce your plastic use during your stay with us. You can drink water from the tap at the ecolodge, so no need for plastic bottles 😊
- We love animals and want to do our part in taking care of them and reduce the impact on the environment 💚🐄🐮🐖🐷🐓. The consumption of meat in our facilities is therefore not allowed (there are many options available in the village).
- Quiet hours are between 10 pm and 8 am
- We are not a party hostel 🙏🏼
- No Drugs
- No smoking areas 🚭
- Only moderated alcohol consumption is allowed
- We don’t have parking 🚫🚙 There is space on the road close by the ecolodge.

    The Pacifico was by far one of my favorite places I have ever spent time at! I felt right at home the minute I got there! Diana is the best hostess a guest could ask for, she was such a kind person and was always there for any questions or fun! All I can say there is no place like it and I highly recommend you visit and the only worry that you will have is never wanting to leave!

    A paradise just outside Jardín. We were welcomed like home by the owners and volunteers. Awesome permaculture gardens. Fresh mountain air. Hot showers, great beds, hammocks and other areas for relaxation. Family style breakfast and optional dinner are awesome. You must go!

    One of the best hostel in the world. Creo ecolodge is more than a hostal. It is a destination. Stunning views of the mountains, sound of the river flowing and delicious home made food, you get all of that and more. Eva and Thibu have built this hostel with a lot of love and care and you feel it as soon as you enter. And they attract guests with similar positive vibe. We ate breakfast and dinner together and 6 of us went exploring the waterfalls together. We meditated together. I will be back.

    This place is pure magic. What an incredibly beautiful and peaceful location to spend a few days. Eva and Thibaut welcome you into their home with open arms. The breakfast is out of this world and always very fresh and homemade. The optional family dinners are also incredible and definitely worth it for only 12,000 COP. What an incredible atmosphere of like-minded, wonderful people. GO THERE!

    One of the best hostels in whole Colombia! The location and the view from the terrace is amazing! But nothing could beat the delicious breakfast and dinner! I was really impressed by the quality of food - one of my highlights in Colombia! The staff, the owner and traveler made the stay even better. It was a really nice group of people and a warm and friendly atmosphere! :) The only thing I would add/change is doors of the dorms, because you easily wake up. Anyway, I would totally recommend it!

    Nice place, remote, very friendly staff. If you want to get away from traffic/streets/shops for awhile then this is the place. 30 min walk from Jardín-proper. No WiFi. They wake at 6:30am and sleep around 9pm, so you kinda need to be on their schedule, eat when they eat, etc. Come to relax and decompress, go somewhere else if you want to drink/party.
