In the evening our bar is a great place to grab a cold drink and meet like minded travellers. Our kitchen serves snacks during the day and we serve veggie and non-veggie lunch and dinners, just don’t forget to sign up. We also offer a communal kitchen to those who wish to prepare their own meals.

With colonial, pre-colombian and african influences to be found in its food, art and customs, the culture and people here are just as diverse as their environment. Our hostel is within walking distance of the Pueblito/Calabazo entrance to Tayrona National Park.Behind the property there are many trails into the forest and up the Rio Pierda where you can find various natural pools and waterfalls. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Colombia are easily accessible and the town of Santamarta with its airport too.We also offer help planning your activities and making the most of your stay with us, at our front desk reception.

    Mama Tayrona is a new hostel owned by Fabienne and her son Danny, who're fantastic hosts. The hostel is a unique concept, set in the jungle not far from the lesser known and arguably more beautiful entrance to Tayrona park in Calabazo. They have an idyllic natural pool, a cool bar and spectacular views of the hills - the main accommodation block enjoys particularly good views from it's position on a hill above the pool. Sure to be one of the next top spots around Tayrona - don't miss it!

    I had an amazing experience at Mama Tayrona, a very new place but one with loads of class and more than enough to offer in the way of adventure. The property is expansive with a natural river pool and another lovely jungle river on site. The bar is mellow and cheap and if a bigger party is happening there are several other hostels nearby. The hostel is walking distance to the East entrance for Tayrona NP, it is possible to make to the beach & back in 1 day, though its a long way! Better to camp

    Couldn't recommend this hostel more. It is located right in the heart of the jungle within walking distance from Park Tayrona! Run by an extremely friendly family, who gave us all kinds of advice for our stay and also took us up to the river which was stunning. If you're looking for a few days to be surrounded by bliss and nature then be sure to make a stop at Mama Tayrona!!

    This place is beautiful! Has a pool with natural river water, no chemicals! The owners were fantastic. They helped us make arrangements and we're fun to hang with. Definitely recommend!

    A lovely hostel, with a lovely mother and son running the place, that give it a nice relaxed and homely feeling. Food was great and the pool and river are amazing! Great value for money and location if you’re planning on heading into Tayrona National Park (we did, and they looked after our big bags for us overnight). We only stayed one night, it’s all our itinerary would allow, which was a real shame, would love to’ve stayed longer. Would highly recommend!

    The whole property is very beautiful. Lockers would have been nice and the kitchen could be cleaner, but they have a nice bar and restaurant. Almost perfect, though. Highly recommend it.

    An amazing, unique  jungle space that makes you instantly calm after stepping out of Santa Marta. Theres a chemical free pool, a really nice place to chill, hammocks, and a bar. The rooms are spacious and clean, with mosquito nets and amazing views. Wifi and kitchen available only at reception, would be great to see it closer to the main hub. Food is tasty! Fabienne loves to cook for you. Be careful with her spicy sauce though! People make this place! We felt like family!

    Pros: Great location, amazing pool, great bar, phenomenal views. Cons: expensive dinner considering the portions are small and the food is bland. Hard to find dinner elsewhere so come prepared with your own snacks or just make your own dinner.

    Really nice family owned hostel! The view is amazing and we loved the outdoor showers looking at the fields! Waking up in the dorm with a view on the beautiful pool and the mountains was amazing! The location is perfect if you want to enter Tayrona park from the Calabazo entrance (best bet, no tourists). Daniel the owner has a beautiful energy and gives really good tips on the area! There are no lockers in the hostel, (not very convenient if you wanna leave your stuff during the trip to Tayrona)
