Spent ten days at the Dreamer in Santa Marta and was only supposed to stay there for two! The hostel attracts a really nice crowd of people and has a good setup to meet other bagpackers. They have a large pool surrounded by hammocks and...More
We don't think you can beat this place and we've travelled through 10 countries in SA. Awesome staff, top breakfast, swimming pool, bar, pool table, hot showers, clean bedrooms, good WiFi, kitchen, nice tasty restaurant... Surely you can ask for much more!
It is the biggest and most popular hostel in the area and with good reason. While not in the centre of town: it's big, well equipped, organises great tours, has a bar with decent prices and a nice pool. The hostel is really well organised,...More
I visited the dreamer on the 16th Sept to 29th Sept. I booked a double room for two weeks so I could have a Base to explore but at the same time be able to leave my things and come back. On getting there the...More
I stayed at Dreamer for far too many nights and probably would have stayed for longer if I hadn't been dragged away.

It's not advisable to only do a half day trip. It takes approx 45 min to 1 hour from Dreamers to the main front gate of Tayrona, from there, you get a colectivo for another 15 mins to where you start the treks from. All the good beaches are at least 1 hour walk from where you get dropped. The lines at the front gate will take at least 20 mins and can be up to an hour depending on the time of year you're travelling so a half day trip would be impossible or not worth it.
My suggestion is to check out of the hostel and take an overnight bag. Go early in the morning and you will be at Cabo San Juan before lunch. This way you're pretty much guaranteed an hammock or one of the two private cabanas on the nicest beach in Colombia. The next morning you can trek out of the park back to the main gate and be back at the hostel by mid afternoon.
