El Rio is a new boutique hostel nestled in the jungle alongside the Buritaca River. With its own private river beach, a riverside bar and sundeck, a host of nature activities nearby, and the Caribbean coast just a 30-minute walk away, El Rio Hostel is the ideal getaway for those looking to explore the wild side of Colombia. 


We don't have wifi - prepare to disconnect!

Please note that there are no cash machines in the area, however we do accept credit cards or PayPal, with a small fee. As we are a little isolated, sometimes we can have connectivity issues which affect our card machine, so bring cash if you can. The nearest ATMs are in Santa Marta.
