Bacoa hostel

Since 2018


With plenty of dorm beds and 4 private cabins with spectacular views of the lake and the Antioquia mountains is this beautiful idyllic traditional country house, the perfect place for relaxation and adventures. A little off the beaten track but a stone throw away from the all the tourist attractions.

Relax in the sun, read a book in a hammock or take a dip in the refreshing lake. We offer games like darts, mini pool table, cards, Jenga and have a small ‘theater’, a tv with Netflix account, couches and blankets.

Anything from kayaking, fishing or cycling can be arranged. Don’t miss out the local town of Guatape or for those who aren’t scared of heights, climbing up the rock is a must!
