El Rio Hostel is located 20 minutes from tayrona park, near Colombia's coastal beaches and Alongside the Buritaca river. Here's how to find us.
Take the bus from the Mercado area of Santa Marta heading towards Palomino (1 hour 10 minutes), get off in Buritaca and ask a moto taxi to take you to El Rio (4,000COP). Ask the bus driver for El Rio and they should know where to drop you.
Alternatively, get off the bus 100m after the Rio Buritaca bridge (you’ll see our sign on the right) and walk down the dirt road for 10-15 minutes.
Please do not arrive after dark (6pm) as it is very difficult to find transport in Buritaca at night.
We can also organise transportation to and from Santa Marta and the airport with our partners at Caribbean Pearl.
