We are 24 minutes north of Montañita, 3 minutes north of Ayampe and 13 minutes south of Puerto Lopez on the beach. Our Hostel are located right in front of the beach with panoramic sea views and direct access to the beach close to Las Tunas. We are between the tropical forest and the ocean, beside Machalilla National Park. This is a perfect starting point for many outdoors activities and adventures. This is a great Surf spot for beginners and advanced surfers with 2 waves: Viejamar and Las Tunas. If you want to learn, we offer Surf lessons for beginners in a friendly and quiet environment. You can cook and share a dinner, organize a barbecue, chill in the pool or drink a cold beer on our high level terrace enjoying a magical sunset. To keep the balance after an adventure, surf or quiet beach day, join us for a "Party Trip" to Montañita or a local party in one of our neighbor towns!

Viejamar is an absolutely georgous hostel with very friendly. The hostel is in a very quiet location and the perfect place to chill out and surf. The athmosphere is very familial. The hostel offers surf lessons as well as trips to Isla de la plata.

There are no stores near by. You will have to take a bus to the closest town that has a supermarket and a very nice local market. A bus ride will take you about 15-20 minutes.
