Property Description

Fun and funky backpackers hostel popular with art and music lovers. Excellent bathrooms, shared kitchen and plenty of shaded outdoor space.

La Playita features a bar, shared lounge and a lot more shared space on the border of the River Guachaca where you can bathe in the crystal clear water til your heart´s content.

You can float down the river 2km to the Caribbean ocean to the virgin Guachaca beach or a short, motobike, bicycle, car ride away you can find a (slightly) more commercial beach that has great local and rustic restaurants and juice bars.

We are incredibly close to the start of the Lost City trek, to Tayrona Park and many other natural wonders worth visiting such as waterfalls and natural swimming pools.

The units at La Playita come with a shared bathroom and bed linen.

La Playita offers a barbecue. You can play darts at the hostel, and the area is popular for hiking.

genuinely loved my experience at la playita, from the welcoming staff to the atmosphere, it was an all around great experience, the location is pretty nice since it's very quiet and you are a quick walk away from a completely empty beach where you won't be bothered by any vendors. there's also some waterfalls you can visit and swim in the natural pools, there's a kitchen that is equipped with the essentials. this hostel has been a highlight of my trip and I hope to come back again!

Really cool place but very lacking in social atmosphere. Location pros: next to a river you can float down all the way to the sea. Location cons: the town of Guachaca has little to offer. Tip for staff: provide clearer instructions on how to get back to the hostel after floating the river to the sea, especially given that anyone doing this won't have their phone with them so no way to navigate except by memory.
