Property Description

Mamallena on the Beach is a traditional hostel located right on the beach in this traditional fisherman village. We were the first hostel in town and we are excited to see how tourism is growing and helping the people of the village. The hostel is basic, as you would expect, but we do have 10 rooms with a combination of privates and dorms, both with and without AC. Right on the beach is our own Bruja's Playa Bar serving juices and cocktails, with plenty of hammocks and lounges to relax in. Walk a few minutes in either direction and you'll find even more secluded areas than ours. We can organise trips and activities for you as well, but most people just want to come and relax on the beach. There is also great seafood available in the local beach restaurants. Our super friendly local staff can help you with anything you need.

Rincon del Mar is a small fishing village in the department of Sucre, Colombia around 13km from ‘San Onofre’ 2.5 hours south of Cartagena along the Caribbean coast. This is a great location to stop at if you are heading from Cartagena to Medellin and absolutely perfect for a few days rest and relaxation before hitting the big cities again.

Our rooms are basic but cozy, the dorms have no more tan 7 beds and can fit only 7 people, and privates rooms have a double bed and a single bed. Bathrooms are shared but are plenty of them. Our front door opens to the beach where you´ll find our bar and plenty of hammocks and chairs to relax in the sun. We don´t serve food as we like to support the local people by giving them business. We have an open air kitchen and there is a restaurant right next door that will deliver food to your spot on the beach. Tours to the San Bernardo islands are also easily arranged and that a beautiful spot to spend a few hours. For those of you who are a bit more adventurous we can also around horse riding through the local farmlands and along the beach. Taking a walk through Rincon del Mar is an adventure in itself, just exploring the town and meeting the friendly locals.
Come visit us, everyone is waiting!

    Mamallena is a great place to stay with air con and ny room had a balcony and was literally on top of the beach, and Rincon is the perfect Colombian beach town. Away from it all. Beautiful beaches, calm sea for swimming nice bars and restaurants. Do a boat trip to the islands, see the plankton. Get an arepa with huevo from behind the hostel. Loved it all. I’ll be back

    My stay at Mamallena was perfect. This time I was the only one at the hostel and had a room with the view of the ocean at a beach where there’s not so many tourist nor vendors trying to sell you things. Reasonably priced and in a recently renovated room was a great plus. I’d definitely stay there again!

    The place was a gem! The triple room with ocean view was huge and clean, sleeps three people very comfortably. The hostel is small and very relaxing - has some nice hammocks on the beach where you can chill and drink beers. Very worth the price. Owner is super chill as well. Highly recommended !!

    A good cheap hostel, nice staff work there. Very clean. The private rooms have air con but its turned on at 6pm and on all night until morning. It got REALLY cold at night but they don't give you the remote to turn it off or less cool.. There was also a mouse that came into our room, and ran out, it was big, but its a beach hut so I guess to be expected. There are a lot of accommodation around as well. But for the price this place was fine.

    It's basic but with everything you need and it's literally on the beach, what more could you want! No induction on arrival whatsoever and Sonia seemed a little unwelcoming initially but after 5 days we got a smile out of her and I dare say she even liked us... Was all part of the charm and we loved her! Good laundry service, bar advertised but non existant but it's not far to get some beers in. Local people drink and party all day. Great town we loved it!

    Definitely recommended as a place to stay in Rincon. Pretty chill, rooms are decent and the owner is super friendly. The staff member who works there always seems super cranky though, and it looks like every question is too much..
