Property Description

Exactly half-way between San Gil and Barichara, La Pacha is a small eco-farm with glamping and vegetarian restaurant run by a friendly Anglo-Colombian family. Includes a free pick up from the bus stop and free transport and booking for extreme sports. Highlights include: a natural swimming pool, Indian and vegetarian food, the sky net, the cine-bus, a nearby free floodlit sports court, panoramic views of rolling mountains, forests and small farms, campfires with free fuel, a 30 minute walk to the best sunset view in the region, and many beautiful hikes to nearby villages and landmarks (including the highest bungee in South America). The accommodation of hobbit house, yurts, domes, and a gypsy wagon are located in the mandarin orchard or on the mountainside. Our environmental ethos: 100% recycling (yes that means 0% garbage. We reuse everything!) Dry toilets, solar showers, organic garden, and compost.
And of course, Xtreme sports. We can offer so much more than your average hostel.
We are perfectly located with a short bus ride into San Gil, so you can easily do all the extreme sports, but remote enough to forget the outside world. There is a gorgeous hidden waterfall with pool just a 40 mins walk away. You can hike to the unique village and UNESCO site , Barichara (2 hours) or take the bus.

But what really makes La Pacha special is the friendly family atmosphere: Run by a very down-to-earth Anglo-Colombian family with two kids, two cats and ten chickens, we make it our mission to welcome guests into the family, but there's lots of different spaces to relax for some quiet time.
We also have local and national charities that we support. By staying at La Pacha you will be contributing to the local community and natural environment.
La Pacha hostel is an experience not to be missed, and if you don't believe us, check out our reviews!

    Justin and Andrea created such a lovely place. Amazing food- breathtaking scenery and wonderful people. You should definitely think about a visit. The walk to Barichara is gorgeous and the location all in all is very nice-you’ll yourself in Orange, Mandarin and Pineapple plantations which is very peaceful and beautiful.

    This lovely eco hostel is situated in one of the most beautiful locations of Colombia and I’m so grateful for the time I was able to spend here! The view from my mountainside yurt was just incredible. Andrea and Justin are kind and considerate hosts and I admire their passion for what they do. Oh, and the food. It is all amazing and delicious, but DO eat as many Indian Thalis as you can during your stay.

    Absolutely fantastic! I definitely recommend staying here instead of central San Gil. I did both. I felt so comfy in La Pacha, it was great to just disconnect a little bit from the intensity of travelling around and waking up in a hostel with a bunch of people in the same dorm. Here it's just hills, nature and really nice, relaxing vibes. You can hike and do all the activities you could in San Gil, but just get home to a chill happy place. I really want to go back!!

    La Pacha Hostel is the best hostel I ever stayed in! Its location and its views are just amazing! There is a magnificent natural pool and a very cool relaxing area. The host Justin is so nice and cool and really cares about his guests. He organizes trips to do amazing outdoor activities in the area and really helped us going there, who we should approach etc. Just visit La Pacha, enjoy Justin's and his wife's delicious food and experience the peaceful atmosphere of this place!!

    This is one of the best hostel experiences my travel buddy and I have EVER had. If you have any hesitancy about the eco toilet, or the location between Bari and San Gil, or the accessibility of activities around San Gil, you can let them all go. This place is worth the little extra effort. Everything here is done with care, and to a fantastic standard. The others we met staying here were the warm, adventurous type and Justin and Andrea are simply incredible hosts. Thank you!

    Had an amazing stay. Despite being half the world away from our families we felt very at home. The family was so welcoming and friendly and the place is like a little safe haven in the hills. We stayed In the coolest hobbit house styled dorm and the bathroom had the best view ever. We hope to come back soon!!
