About La Pacha Hostel and Camping

At La Pacha you will enter another world: Panoramic views of rolling mountains, forests and small farms. The accommodation of yurts, domes, a gypsy wagon and camping are located in the mandarin orchard or on the mountainside. A large natural swimming pool with rocks and plants all around. The sky hammock to watch the sunset and a campfire every night. Delicious Indian and vegetarian restaurant. Spectacular walks and bike tracks all around. Cine-bus with excellent movies. Free wifi and firewood. Our environmental ethos: 100% recycling (yes that means 0% garbage. We reuse everything!) Dry toilets, solar showers, organic garden, compost. And of course, Xtreme sports. We can offer so much more than your average hostel!

It’s perfectly located with a short bus ride into San Gil, so you can easily do all the extreme sports, but remote enough to forget the outside world. There’s a gorgeous hidden waterfall with pool just a 40 mins walk away. A 15 min walk to the most spectacular sunset in the region. You can hike to the unique village and UNESCO site , Barichara (2 hours) or take the bus. You can even walk down to the highest bungee in South America!

But what really makes La Pacha special is the friendly family atmosphere: Run by a very down-to-earth Anglo-Colombian family with two kids, two cats and two goats, we make it our mission to welcome guests into the family, but there's lots of different spaces to relax for some quiet time.
We also have local and national charities that we support. By staying at La Pacha you will be contributing to the local community and natural environment.
La Pacha hostel is an experience not to be missed, and if you don't believe us, check out our reviews!
