About Us

Finca Barlovento is a nature retreat next to Tayrona National Park offering the
visitor a unique experience amongst the ocean, the river and the majestic Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta. We are green leaders in the area and work hard to maintain an eco friendly space by minimizing in every possible aspect the impact that tourism may have on the eco system.

Our accomodations are in three separate lodges. The Cabaña, Maloka and Maloka Suites.

Cabaña, which is the property`s orginal house, is dramatically located on a cliff with the ocean at its feet. Rooms are open to the ocean and it has a lovely communal dinning table and a large terrace hanging over the beach. Three rooms share two airy bathrooms plus there is a suite with a private bathroom and terrace.

Both Maloka and Maloka Suites have ample rooms with private bathrooms. The suites have air conditioning.

At Cabaña and Maloka dinning is communal which will give you the chance to meet new friends and share experiences.

The location of Finca Barlovento is a privileged one as it is adjacent to Parque Tayrona. You are just two kilometers away from the park´s entrance and can get there in five minutes by car, moto taxi, bus or even walk. The property lies between the river and the ocean, with beaches almost always deserted.

It is an ideal place to commune with nature and watch the fauna which includes a great variety of birds, squirrels, iguanas, monkeys and our local celebrities the crocodiles.


You can pamper yourself with an Ayurvedic massage or visit our unique Sierra Bar for a beer or cocktails at sunset or after dinner.


Since its conception by the architect simon velez several decades ago, Barovento Estate has focused on maintaining its spirit of respect for nature and its guests.

Things to do

You can relax at the beaches right at the property, spend a day at the park, trek to Pueblito, go to Palomino or Don Diego where you can drift down the river on an inner tube. Our staff will do their best to help you and advice you.
