La Sirena Eco Hostel & Retreat Center - Hostel Palomino - Colombia

La Sirena Eco-Hostel and Retreat Center is a peaceful getaway located on the Caribbean Sea. Just 30 minutes from Tayrona Park, the hostel’s property—which is part of a coconut plantation—has its own beach and fruit trees, and there are also a few rivers within walking distance. Accommodations include hammocks, bedrooms for two to four people, and private cabañas. Many of the rooms afford views of the sea, and the La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the tallest coastal mountain on earth, can be seen from the grounds. La Sirena hosts yoga, spirital healing, personal wellness and healing arts retreats at its facility, so check its website for scheduled events. Yoga classes (1.5 hr) take place every Wednesday morning. There is also an on-site restaurant, which serves traditional Colombian meals and snacks. Prices include breakfast.
