Welcome to our little corner of paradise! Situated a 20 min bus ride between San Gil and Barichara, we are an Anglo-Colombian family with two teenage children, two cats, two small dogs and ten chickens. La Pacha is our home and we manage the hostel, restaurant and organic farm ourselves. We cook delicious curries (see our reviews) and serve our home-grown organic coffee and free natural spring water. We also offer all the extreme sports of San Gil and cultural activities of Barichara. We will treat you like one of our own. La Pacha's style is rustic, simple and beautiful! You can stay in the hobbit house dorm, the dome dorm or private yurts or gypsy wagon. The yurts and domes have earth floors and no electricity, but we provide solar lamps and lockers with electric sockets (the hobbit house does have it's own electricity). We have loads of games and sports (hiking, archery, volleyball, darts, frisbee golf, Catan, and more) . You can walk to Barichara or a local waterfall. We have a strong environmental ethos: in this way we offer vegetarian food, dry toilets, solar showers, a natural swimming pool and organic farm. We don't have a shared kitchen, but we do have a simple campfire cooking place with amenities. We also recycle and compost our waste, repair as much as possible, use recycled furniture and materials and practice bio-construction. La Pacha is unique, beautiful and also economical! We support local and national charities , giving our guests the opportunity to give something back to this incredible country. It's also close enough to San Gil to do all the extreme sports from here. If you want a magical place and contact with nature, La Pacha is for you!
