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 arepa's, marmelade, salsa, hummus/guacamole/baba ganoush and freshly cut fruits with granola. Everything is homemade and vegetarian (vegan is also possible). To drink, we offer local coffee or tea, fresh homemade juice and 'kefir', which is a probiotic healthy fermented fruit drink. Breakfast is included and vegetarian dinner is available for 25000 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, technical 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 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.
- 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, but there is space on the road close by the ecolodge

Lovely hostel with the most wonderful views. It was quite quiet when I stayed but still had a nice relaxing atmosphere. Quite a few rules which make things feel a bit uptight when you check in, but it seems the owners have a clear idea about the type of traveler they want to attract (definitely not a party place but a place to relax and do yoga etc). Breakfast is the best I’ve ever had at a hostel.

I absolutely loved my stay at Creo Ecolodge. The views from the deck are stunning, the daily breakfast is delicious, and the entire property has such an amazing vibe. Beyond all of that, the host Eva is simply and amazing human and will ensure you have a great experience in Jardin. Can’t recommend enough.
