This is my second visit to Costeno, it was so good i had to come back on my next trip to Colombia and it was as equally awesome! The first time i visited was just for a couple of days with a Colombian friend who had heard about the place and wanted to try surfing. SInce then i've met a tonne of other Colombians who have been to Costeno and loved it too, even with my terrible spanish i still had so much fun with all the other guests, a mix of backpackers and laid back Colombians.
This place is hiding right on the beach and surrounded by jungle so expect, to hear monkeys, feel the sand between your toes and watch out for falling coconuts ;) It was super easy to get to Tayrona park and if you get sick of surfing/beaching it I recommend visiting the secret waterfall, tubing in Palomino and visiting their sister hostel that's more in the jungle then by the sea, they grow their own produce there its pretty cool.
The staff made me feel welcome from the beginning especially with Santiago's sarcastic humour, he's got some table top dance moves to rival Shakira and he was also really helpful organising our little excursions and other hostels, gracias Santy.
This place was great to chill out after being on the move constantly, i made friends there that i still keep in contact with and even met up with again a year later. If you go you must go to the beach at night and see the phosphorescence, its amazing!
