July 5th, 2018 Purruja Lodge (NO CAMPING)

Just to clarify you can still camp here in a tent. Nice grassy area to put up the tent and basic kitchen area with bbq. Power points available at the kitchen area. Look out for the monkeys in the morning!

Paid €25 for modern double room with good ac and private bathroom. Kitchen available to use which was very clean. Laundry service €5 per 5kg. Fast WiFi! We stored our bicycles in the locked car park.

July 1st, 2018 La Isleta

Lovely place as described below. We camped on nice grassy area just in front of the river with lots of birds around. Showers and bathroom very clean. Super lovely hosts made us feel really welcome! $10 per tent (not pp)

June 16th, 2018 Hostal Venecia

Lovely place to camp. We pitched up our tent in the garden of the hostel. No one else here for the entire time! Hot shower, good kitchen, free coffee. Small shop with cold beer but I would recommend bringing some supplies! Internet quite good. 21,000 PP and does not include breakfast. Lovely area to explore. Didn’t do the tour but did do one of the recommended walks and you can use the pool up at the coffee lodge.

June 15th, 2018 Hacienda Guayabal - Chinchina

I emailed ahead and they confirmed that no tent camping permitted, vans only! Stayed at Hostal Hacienda 10km further north.

June 15th, 2018 La Serrana Hostel

Good spot for exploring Salento. 15pp (not per camper) in a van and 12 pp in a tent. They also had some glamping tents that were 60 per tent. This was a reduced price as on the website they are 80 per tent. Breakfast was ok, eggs and bread and a banana. Good coffee.

Good laundrette. Only 5 washers so I had to wait for one on a Saturday as it was a bit busy.

March 17th, 2018 Maria's Casa

Camped in the garden for 5000pp. Lovely garden with places to sit outside in the sun. For camping, there is only one spot and it fit a small 3p tent Ok but wouldn’t fit a large tent! Rooms were 10,000PP and looked nice! Family who run it are really nice and Mauricio speaks good English.

March 13th, 2018 Northbound wild camp next to Church

There’s a huge white statue on your right hand side (travelling north). We asked the lady who lives next door and she said it was fine to camp. We pitched our tent just next to a closed snack bar. There are toilets with a small donation box. I think there’s even a plug socket in the church! Noise from road as you would expect.

March 10th, 2018 La Bicicleta

Little restaurant/cafe run by a road cyclist. He gave us a discount for being cyclists! Just next to the coped station, there’s a bike painted on the wall outside.
