The Gypsy Residence In Macondo - Hostel Aracataca - Colombia

The Gypsy Residence welcomes backpackers to Moconda. This small hostel, with only two double rooms and a six-bed dormitory, is intimate and inviting. Relax in the common room, hang out on the front patio watching Aracataca happenings, or sway away a sultry afternoon ina hammock in the shady backyard. Backpackers will find everything they need here, including a kitchen. The owner, Tim, a Dutch Gypsy lost in the imagination of magic realism, invites guests to deepen their magical experience by joining his bicycle tour into the heart of Aracataca, visiting places associated with Gabriel García Márquez and his works.
