About Buritaca

On the Northernmost coast of Columbia, Buritaca is a small sleepy town that sits beside a pretty estuary just above the famous Tyrona National Park. A great place to stop off for clean beaches and picturesque scenery with tall mountains framing the town. Being a traditional area, don’t forget to bring some cash as many vendors won’t accept electronic payment. We’ve selected the best places to stay in Buritaca to unwind and relax.

Unsurprisingly for Columbia, Buritaca is hot year round and stays close to thirty degrees. The tropical climate does, however, bring rain so if you want to stay dry aim to visit between January and April.

Don’t miss grabbing a drink on the estuary and taking a day trip to the local waterfalls!

For the best places to stay in Buritaca, we recommend:

For Rustic sophistication

  • Gitana del Mar is a beautiful mix of bamboo, thatch and great local cuisine. Sitting between the beach and rainforest, this hotel is particularly popular with yoga enthusiasts who can take advantage of the morning class.

For Beachfront seclusion

  • Merecumbe Hotel offers guests quiet cabanas sitting just behind the private beach with traditional architecture and a great restaurant.

Still not sure which to book?
