Playa del Ritmo is the ONLY BEACHFRONT hostel in Santa Marta, specially designed for travellers to feel at home in the heart of the Caribbean.
We are just on the most quiet and prettiest beach of Santa Marta, close to the airport as well.

At Playa, backpackers from all around the world enjoy their time chilling on the beach, playing volleyball and football, kayaking, doing yoga, diving, tanning and being mesmerised the most beautiful sunsets in the shade of our palm tree hut. Playa Del Ritmo‬ offers you Kayaks and Paddles for free during your stay. We can help you to schedule Windsurf and Scuba Diving Courses as well.

If the beach life becomes a bit too hard, you can easily go to Rodadero area (a 5 minute ride by bus) or to Santa Marta’s downtown (just about 15-20 minutes) where you can find supermarkets, ATMs, shopping, restaurants and nice bars.
We are only 15 minutes from the Airport...and less than an hour and a half from Tayrona National Park ;)

If you are looking for a good place to relax, rest your feet, and have a cold beer, don't think about it twice: this is your place.

Prices are per person per night.
