Located right on the most quiet and pretty beach of Santa Marta, Playa del Ritmo is the ONLY BEACHFRONT hostel of Santa Marta, specially designed for travellers to experience the real Caribbean life style!

At Playa, backpackers from all over the world spend days chilling on the beach, playing volleyball and football, kayaking, doing yoga, going diving, tanning and enjoying the most beautiful sunsets in the shade of our palm tree hut, listening to the best Caribbean tunes!

Should the beach life become a bit too much hard work,you can easily go to Rodadero area (5 minutes by bus) or to Santa Marta’s downtown (15-20 minutes) where you can find supermarkets, cash points, shopping, restaurants and nice bars… it´s also very easy to get to the different attractions such as Tayrona, Minca, Lost City, Palomino, you just have to go to the reception for good travel advice...And we are just 15 minutes away from the Airport.

If you are looking for a good place to relax, rest your feet, and have a cold beer, this is your place.

Playa del Ritmo is located just 15 minutes away from Santa Marta Airport, in Pozos Colorados area, in front of Sierra Laguna Condominium. Our Caribbean beach hostel has a beautiful private beach and a lagoon, away from vendors and crowds.

If you are coming by taxi, ask the chauffeur to drive you to Sierra Laguna Condominium (two big luxury apartments buildings), Playa del Ritmo is the property located on left side of it.

If you are coming by bus, take a blue bus that says 'Avenida Libertador - Centro' ask the driver to stop in front of the street corresponding to Sierra Laguna entrance. Cross the avenue and walk 300 mts in th direction of Sierra Laguna - towards the beach.

We are 5 minutes away from Rodadero area (closest neighbourhood) and 20 minutes from Santa Marta historical downtown.
