Property info

We are an Hostel located on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Pacific Coast of Colombia: El Almejal beach in El Valle, a small town near Bahia Solano. The hostel lies right between the jungle and the incredibly beautiful Pacific Ocean. You can therefore walk right onto the beach directly in front of the hostel or enjoy the local flora and fauna in the jungle with a tour. We have areas to rest and relax where the sounds (and view!) of the ocean and jungle meet each other, creating an incredible experience. There are three shared rooms. Two for six people, and one for four people. We also have one private room, our “Pelican Suite” with his own bathroom and shower. In The Pelican House you can use a fully furnished kitchen to cook your own food. We have excellent contacts with local tour operators that we know and trust; with them you can go to see whales (from June to November), do bird watching, take a boat tour to Utria National Park (where you can see mangroves and do snorkeling), visit indigenous communities on a day trip inland, visit one of the many beautiful waterfalls nearby and a lot more….
