Property Description

Welcome to Mendihuaca Beach!

At the very beginning of Sierra Nevada, located between sea and tropical forest, come experiencing life in this little paradise and discover our local surf culture. Owned by a famous Colombian born and raised surfer and her suisse partner, you will receive the best advices for beggining with the beautiful sport of surfing or simply carry on your love for it.

It is a sustainable surf camp, which provides accommodation services such as a hostel and a surf school, with a focus on sustainable tourism for those who want to minimize their footprint while enjoying a nice time on the beach, the sea and the waves.

We are located in Colombia, the Caribbean, 7 km from the main entrance of Tayrona National Park, on the traditional fishermen's beach of the Mendihuaca river. The beauty of this place is that it still preserves its traditional forms of fishing and the river mouth ecosystem is still a pool of very clean natural water.

Everything is built in reforested pine wood from Colombia, respecting the wide spaces for everyone's comfort, we do not handle air conditioning, since we focus on efficient air circulation and this has guaranteed that all spaces manage a comfortable temperature. All rooms have balconies, some with ocean views and others with jungle views. The main theme of art are elements created by the muralist @laplagainvade from Medellín that decorate most of the spaces of Mendihuaca Surf.

Come and relax after practice in our environmentally friendly hostel, with either sea or jungle view!!

Everyone was so nice and welcoming, the surf school is amazing, nice boards and good teachers and the beach is perfect for surfing! Great location to visit other destination like Tayrona Park and go on hikes. I wish I could stay much much longer. The hostel also cares a lot about sustainability which is really refreshing and I appreciate it. The hostel is clean and feels very safe. There’s also a lot of delicious vegan food nearby! I will definitely come back :D
