Barlovento Cabaña has been mentioned in Lonely Planet as perhaps “The best place in Colombia in which to hang your hat.”
In 1976, artist Gloria Mejía commissioned the design to renowned architect, Simon Vélez, as a family retreat.
Due to its architectural importance and unique design it has been featured in, books and magazines around the world.
Rooms in Cabaña are under thatched roof with a beautiful veranda and no windows. Three rooms share two airy bathrooms plus there is a suite with a private bathroom and terrace. All face the ocean. You must keep in mind that the ocean is noisy. If that is a concern then Maloka may be a better choice.
We are located just past the 33KM road mark on the highway to Riohacha. If you are coming from Cartagena or arrive by plane the easiest is to take a taxi. From Santa Marta it should cost you about $110.000 COP and from the airport $120.000 COP. Rates may vary a little according to season or if it is at night. For a taxi, please call Jimmy at 314 501 2383. If you want to rough it up and come by bus you can take one at El Mercado at Calle 11 Carrera 11. Take one that says GUACHACA and tell the driver to stop at Barlovento KILOMETRO 33.
