The island is only 10 minutes away from More the modern part of the city it has white sand beaches and a really nice infraestructure ideal for chilling and relaxing. With the work we are doing at The Beach Hostel, now (hotel), we are showing to the community new alternatives of employment and working together with them cleaning the beach and proyecting the future of their community. All of The Beach Hostel staff are Tierrabomba island natives, their tecnical education process began when we opened the place, They are cheerful, helpful and with a huge sense of service. They have learned a lot about tourism, service, cleanliness and belonging. Less
