Located just 70 km from S.Marta and not far from the Tayrona park entrance, The Dreamer on the beach in Palomino is a great stop-over for backpackers and travellers while discovering the colombian caribbean coast. The Dreamer offers a relaxed atmosphere in beautiful surroundings with unique ecological conditions. The hostel is on one of the coast´s more attractive beaches that also includes 2 swimmable rivers that flow from the Sierra Nevada, indigenous villages, and a clear view from the hostel of the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains.
With our beautiful stretch of white sand surrounded by National Parks, palm forests and a breathtaking view of the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains, travellers can now discover one of Colombia's most perfect beaches... just sit still and watch the waves come in, crash, roll out; watch the sun rise and set; look to the east and west and see little more than sand, sea, rivers, vegetation, blue sky, and the sun brightly scorching everything a more perfect scene could not have been painted.
Our hostel boasts large hotel style rooms - all with ensuite and private terraces overlooking the pool and comfortable dorms with excellent mattresses. Prices can change during Peak Season.
