Posada Kalea is an excellent place to kite and relax. At the hostel, you can enjoy a quiet and magical stay by being surrounded by beautiful beaches and sea.

"Amazing experience "
EVERYTHING. The instructors were extremely patient with us, ensured we got sufficient surfe time in during the best conditions. The accommodation is as authentic as it gets, and the people here are just incredible, friendly, nice, and just great people. Cannot recommend this camp enough.

At first this seemed dodgy, but this is a great place away from the crowded tourist beaches. It's a poor neighborhood, but the hostel is nice and clean, with friendly staff and a resto-bar right on the big open beach and hammocs on the overlooking balconies.
There is a bunch of shops and local street restaurants, including burgers & pizza within close walking distance and it was easy to get to the Cartagena city center and back by 'colectivo'.
I've been warned not to walk with my wallet & phone late at night, but I had no problems. The locals are very friendly but don't speak much English.
I stayed 8 day, kitesurfing almost every afternoon with helpful one-on-one instructors and getting tips from the regulars. All kinds of other water activities were available. I went kayaking at sunset and visited the city sites on the windless days.

"Amazing quality vs price "
100% satisfied of my stay at KALEA. I was not expecting this charming little secret place to offer such a personal and professional service. Really good price for what I got. The room was absolutely charming, view on the beach. I woke up to the sound of the waves every morning.
I initially went to KALEA for the kitesurfing lessons. I only had a few days and the manager was super accommodating about it. The whole staff was quite amazing. If you’re into kitesurfing this is the place to stay! Loved being able to ride the surfing board after only 4 days *all because of good instructors.

When I first arrived I was going to ask the taxi to keep on driving! From the street it looked shady but it turned out to be a hidden gem! The rooms are great, clean,spacious,maintained daily and with ocean views (balcony with hammocks, Ac or fans and wifi)The property is on the beach! The food is amazing and the staff does its best to help with anything.Surprisingly all courses were one on one instructions and they have a lot of staff to help around in and out of the water.
Everyone is really friendly!
