I stayed for 4 nights with my family of 4. Although rustic it was nice, clean and surrounded by trees. My big complaint was the noisy busy road. I expected to be surrounded by nature and although it looks that way the busy road is right next to the pool. The trucks are annoying and can be heard most of...

We loved our stay at Yuluka eco hostel! Our family (of four) had a fantastic 3 night stay at Yuluka which enabled us with easy access to Tayrona Park and other nearby attractions. The owner and staff at Yuluka were extremely welcoming, kind and helpful. They provided us with a lot of great tips for places to go and explore...

It was a perfect location to rest up after the 4 day trekking to Ciudad Perdida. The double bedroom with terrace and hamacas was exactly what we needed and the room and deco nicley thought trough. The hostal is quite and has a nice restaurant area (although the personnel in the restaurant could have been more service minded - a...

I was not pleased much with EcoYuluka near Tayrona. It is run by international volunteers, the owner lives above the office and does not extend any hospitality to guests. I had booked a dorm bed, the volunteers stay in the dorm room also, so the bathroom and room is full with their stuff. I had requested a bottom bunk, but...

We stayed here for 4 nights, 3 in the cabin at the top of the property and 1 night in a cabin just near the pool. First the positives. The hostal is in a lovely tropical setting with lovely plants, birds and animals to be seen, as well as some nice views of the nearby mountains from the restaurant. The...

Good location for visiting Tayrona National Park, very close to the entrance. Nice breakfast included, good restaurant options for lunch/dinner. Stayed in the dorm, very good value for money. It is close to the main road so you can hear the trucks passing by. The whole hostel is very nicely built, lots of green. Owner is very friendly. He also...

This place is great. It's a good location to access Tayrona Park and they organize this for you. Has a good upmarket backpacker feel. The cabaña we stayed us was excellent. The pool is great for kids (and adults alike). Very friendly staff with great service. The restaurant too is great.

This place is just beautiful. It's located close to the Tayrona Park so that you can use it as your basecamp when you don't want to stay in the park itself. The whole place offers several houses mostly for two people and all of them are fit in the surrounding nature perfectly. Eco tourism is really taken seriously here and...
