This is an international hostel and a typical 'Posada' in the middle of Playa Carmen, Santa Teresa, a few steps from the beach, in one of the best spots to surf and enjoy the suggestive colors of the sunset on the ocean.

In La Posada, we offer a common area with a billiard, ping pong and some other games, a lounge atmosphere with videos and music, hammocks, a communal kitchen, and a swimming pool. We love to gather, have family dinner, and unite with all cultures. Come join us and be part of the La Posada family.

You will have the option to choose a private room with private bathroom, AC and cable tv or a bed in a 6 people shared dorm with a private bathroom. Those rooms are also equipped with Wi-Fi and AC.

Program

The itinerary will be shared with the guest the moment they arrive so they have everything planned according to what the instructors recommend, taking into account the level and necessities of the student.

You will also have time to rest, go to the beach or have any other activities on your program, such as yoga lessons, some boat trip, horseback riding or a nice massage!

During the night, you can share your days and moment with the guest and crew, having some drinks or dinner in our common area, before going sleep, to be ready for the next day.

Location

Hostel La Posada is located in Playa Carmen, only 100 meters from the beach, 50 meters from the best supermarket where you will find everything you need, 200 meters from the intersection, where banks are located, and a few meters from bars, restaurants, pharmacy, and a laundry.

The best surf point is a few minutes' walk from Santa Teresa.

Santa Teresa basically consists of the main street parallel to the sea where you can find all the restaurants, bars, and surf shops.

And if you want just one day to relax under your personal palm tree, you can head to Mal País side, which offers a chill atmosphere, local fish market, and some secluded beach areas. This is also the place where the Cabo Blanco National Park starts and in case you are a nature-animal-hiking lover the park has some great options for you.

Allow local Spanish instructors to teach you the basic things about Costa Rica Language and take some of its culture back home. Fun and interesting lessons of 1 or 2 hours will help you to keep up with fluent Spanish conversations and interact in the best way with Costa Rican people.

Yoga lessons

Not only does yoga strengthen your body & mind, but it also gives you time to focus on yourself during your trip. Isn’t that what vacation is all about? Classes take place in a Yoga studio in 5 minutes walking with an incredible deck in front of the beach.

Massage

After long surfing days the best option to relax your mind and body is a good massage. You will have a couple of options to choose relaxing, stretching, stimulating, deep tissue, and therapeutic. Unlock physical, emotional, and mental barriers.

Tortuga Island Snorkeling Tour

Enjoy a full-day boat trip to Isla Tortuga. Do snorkel, have a delicious meal on the beach and discover Costa Rica’s pure nature and wildlife. Be ready to fully relax at this beautiful beach. Breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean on the right and the landscape of the Nicoya peninsula on the left.

Horseback riding

If you love horses and sunsets, then this is the right place for you. Take a look to Santa Teresa, Mal País or Manzanillo beach in the most natural way possible. You will ride through beaches, rivers and forest with the guide of the most capable persons in town. Locals will take you to places only they know and you can only reach hiking or by horse. Enjoy an unforgettable sunset around beach and jungle roads.

Fishing Trip

Are you ready for the ultimate fishing trip on the pacific ocean? Here is your chance: Hop on a boat and catch some tuna, mahi-mahi or snappers. And the best thing: end your day with a fresh fish BBQ - delicious!

Zip Line

The zip line tour is a fantastic way to take advantage of Costa Rica’s stunning forest canopy views. With an amazing landscape created from a perfect combination of the rain forest lush vegetation and the sea breeze, there is simply no other ride like this.

Scuba diving

One thing we can count on in our mercurial Pacific is excitement. We dive it every day and are always looking forward to the adventures and surprises it may bring. Even from one dive to the next the conditions can vary greatly, so we always brief our divers on the potential of challenging conditions, which invariably make for a fun and memorable experience. Sharks, morays, lobsters, sting rays, crabs, and schools of colorful fish are all creatures we see on a daily basis, and in addition we have two distinct seasons for very special visitors: the oceanic manta ray (January-April) and the humpback whales (August-September). We like keeping the dive groups small, so you will go out on boats with no more than five or six people plus two PADI dive professionals. That way we make sure that everyone has the attention they need.

Freediving and apnea lessons

This training's strength is found in their experienced instructors. Each of them has international certifications in their specific sector: International Red Cross water rescuer, lifeguard, and Swimming Red Cross instructor, Apnea Total, Molchanovs, Survival Apnea, Xpt Performance Breathing Coach, ISLA (International Surf and Lifeguarding Association). Gathering both communities' knowledge, you will learn and experience the true power of breath and human potential.

ATV rental

Have some fun riding an ATV through the beach. Playa Hermosa and Playa Zuecos are just a few minutes away. Or you can choose to do the 45 minutes ride to Montezuma waterfalls though our jungle road in constant contact with nature. Once there you do just 15 minutes hike until you reach to 3 Waterfalls of 20-12 and 3 meters.

Snorkeling

Just 10 minutes on a bicycle from the hostel you will find natural pools on low tide to chill or you can go even deeper with our snorkeling equipment to see turtles, stingrays and all kind of fishes.
