Beautiful chill out hostel in a small fishermen village on the Colombian Caribbean Coast. It is a true paradise that combines the beauty of nature with the best of a great city like Santa Marta.
We have always welcomed volunteers from all over offering them the best of our team, we want you to have fun and have a good time so we can make your working hours flexible.
Being part of the La Tortuga team was undoubtedly an enriching experience. Its spaces are spectacular, the atmosphere is warm, and its team and pets made my stay unique and special (gonna miss the turtles and Panda, that beautiful dog <3). I appreciate having the opportunity to have shared space with the dear Ledys and Denis (the managers), wonderful ladies, very kind and responsible, that I will always carry in my drawer of good memories. Couldn't met Mona personally, but I can tell that she's an amazing person with a giant and kind heart.

Mi estadía en la Tortuga fue increíble, es un lugar maravilloso para desconectarse de la ciudad. Hay paisajes muy bonitos y muchas cosas por hacer. En cuanto al hospedaje no tengo queja alguna, no tuve la oportunidad de conocer a la anfitriona (la mona) pero las personas a cargo son personas muy agradables y amables que te hacen sentir como en casa.

I had an amazing experience at La Tortuga Hostel, all volunteers are like family and I felt very much at home, it was my first volunteer experience and could not have been better. I worked at the Bar where I could meet people from all over the world and practice my English and learn Spanish.
Taganga is very welcoming and has beautiful beaches near the hostel.
Mona is an amazing and inspiring woman, thank you for the opportunity!
