Location

Address: Fresh water bay area, right besides Cabañas Agua Dulce Hotel.

Directions from the airport

In any motor vehicle the Blue Almond is about 15-20 minutes from the airport, we don't recommend walking as it would take too long. Here are a few options that you can take if you are planning on staying with us

-A taxi from the airport/dock should charge you $23.000 COP, the best way to save money on this trip is to talk to fellow travelers on the plane/catamaran and ask them if they are going to Agua Dulce, Cab drivers don't like when you car pool and will charge more if you ask them to make a stop in other hotel than the originally agreed.

-A bus cost $2.500 and runs every 60 minutes, ask the driver to stop at Cabañas Agua Dulce, this bus is very unreliable and rarely runs.

-Although We don't recommend this type of transportation a moto-taxi should charge you $3.000. Keep in mind that you won't find any mototaxis at the airport as cab drivers won't let them pick people up, you however will find some at the dock when the catamaran arrives, remember to always agree the price before getting on any means of transportation.

-Walk or hitchhike. If you are feeling adventorous and have a tight budget you can always walk to the hostel and try hitchhiking along the way, girls generally have no problem getting picked up by guys on motorcycles, please  be aware that you will be getting hit on all the way!. If you are not lucky enough to get picked up this walk should take you about an hour with an average size backpack.

-Renting a scooter. I you arrive to Providencia in the catamaran there are 3 rental places about 50 meters from the dock, my favourite one is the one from the hardware store, the scooters are well mantained, fairly new and the prices are fair ranging from $50.000 COP/day.

Things we offer and thing we don't in Providencia

Things We offer.

Ocean View Terrace with access to the Ocean

For our guest we offer unlimited access to the Ocean View Terrace located right in front of the hostel with direct access to the ocean.

You can snorkel right in front of the property.

Late Checkout

If no one is coming to the room/bed where you are staying in, on the date that you are leaving, We have no problem to do a late checkout or early check in for you.

 

Breakfast

The hostel in Providencia is a bit different that the one in San Andres, our business partner has a restaurant on site and offers breakfast for $15.000 COP which includes few different options like home style eggs, coffee, fruits and cereal among other things.

Payment on Arrival.

You'll be charged upon arrival for the whole stay you reserved. We accept Cash (USD, Euros or Pesos), Visa, Master Card, Diners and Bit/lite coin.
People who made reservation on non-refundable rates most likely have been charged  within 48 hours of reservations being made.

Things We DON'T offer.

Hot showers.

Everybody knows that Hot water makes you saggy and unattractive, in the Blue Almond We care about your looks, besides there are proven studies that cold showers improve circulation, relieve depression, increases testosterone and fertility therefore manliness overall.

On a serious note, implementing a hot water system would be expensive and underused.

No Kitchen

Unfortunately and due to the nature of the property we rented in Providencia for the time being we are unable to offer a kitchen for guest to use.

We are aware that this is a bit of a drag for people willing to save money on food, We are working to change this, but can't yet give you a date.

 

Wireless Fidelity

Providencia doesn't have any broadband, so unfortunately we can't offer a reliable Internet connection for the time being. We are currently working on a workaround* and have ordered all the devices needed.

*If you are interested on the technical details:
We are planning to hook up a MiFi Device with a standard Simcard with a prepaid plan to a repeater running DD-wrt software so I can troubleshoot it remotely.
