My names Matt, I recently came back from two months in Colombia and fell in love with everything about the country. Now, along with a friend I'm looking to open a hostel in the Santa Marta area, either Palomino, Santa Marta or Minca. If you have any information or advice I would greatly appreciate it as this will be my first venture in the hospitality industry. I would be interested in buying an established hostel or buying a house to convert to a hostel in any of these areas. Ultimately I would like to run a restaurant/bar/yoga studio in it as well. My friend and I have raised about $50,000 CAD so far, and would potentially be interested in other investors/partners. I would like the hostel to be sustainable, ethical and would like to help out the local indigenous communites as much as possible.
If you have any information please contact me at:
