Property Description

Talata is the perfect place to wind down, chill on a hammock or go for a swim in the ocean.

We have a separate traditional cabaña in Wayuu style dormitory and 5 shared toilettes.
A beach bar is spreading good beats and cold drinks, best place to see burning sundowns. Basically you'll sleep under millions of stars with the sound of the waves.

We love it simple, easy and relaxed. Talata is located where the Guajira desert kisses the beautiful Carribean sea, 30 minutes from Riohacha and on the way to Cabo de la Vela.

The beauty of a desert come with its peculiarities means we have no running water but plenty of free potable water for drinking and showering and bucket showers. We're also aiming to live sustainable that's why we only get our house powered from the sun. Last but not least : we're also an animal refugee! We have dogs and cats and 2 chickens. They all running free but very friendly. You have to love animals to be here!!

I have nothing but amazing things to say about this place! First, all the dogs and cats that welcome you and maybe cuddle with you in your hammock was paradise for us! (So if you want to stay here make sure you’re comfortable with animals!). Toto and Jazmin were so hospitable and really made sure the guests enjoyed themselves! We had fires each night, had the beautiful private beach view and comfortable dorms! Also, the fish at the restaurant next door was amazing!! It’s a really good place to relax, and ha

Gracias por todo Toto y Jazmín! A wonderful stay for which I had to return for an extra night after my Puntas Gallinas tour (they can help organise!) I arrived in Talata just for a place to stay for kitesurfing down the beach and I ended up meeting a lovely host couple who I will never forget:) The dormitory was clean and comfortable, the facilities are basic due to the location but that’s to be expected and doesn’t take anyway anything from the place. There is a restaurant 5 mins away for evening meal a
