One of the most popular hostels in the area (and also one of the best) Costeño Beach is renowned for it’s breathtaking beauty, great service, and of course it’s excellent surf lessons. The first ever surf hostel in Tayrona, Costeño Beach offers the perfect balance of relaxed beach vibes, good food & drinks, and nice social evenings.

It’s a great place to disconnect from city life (or life in general) and enjoy the various activities the hostel offers, including yoga, onsite massages, daily surf training, ecological walks and many other fun coastal activities. But if you prefer you can just relax on the beach and catch a few waves until the best sunset you have seen (since yesterday) comes along and you head to the bar to enjoy a cool margarita.

As to be expected the hostel has a relaxed young vibe and it’s not uncommon to see the same faces for a week or two. Once you have settle into the Caribbean beach lifestyle you’ll quickly see why it’s so hard to leave this beach paradise.
