Punta La Barca is a colive and cowork space, an inspirational base for like-minded nomads. Think nature (deserted beach, whales), outdoors (kitesurf, campfire, beach-tennis), rural (located in a small fishing village), local (we are young local family). The life in this village is still very different from our "modern life" (very community-based, slow in time, but surprisingly sustainable). It is an inspirational environment to anyone dreaming of doing good for the world!

All prices include accomodation, a space to work, free breakfast, and access to all the amenities including wifi. Please enquire for specific prices if you are booking as a couple, or more.

"Most relaxing work i've ever done"

    June 2018

    The WiFi was great. I was shocked that it worked so well. Also, I don't think I've ever been more relaxed working. I think it was just being in from of a huge ocean span view and looking up every so often to check for whales. An unreal experience. The entire house and cabanita is made out of bamboo. I swear there is some calming vibes coming out of this material. I don't know how I'm going to work in a regular house with a regular view in the future. This just might be something I'll need to come back to.

    "The Perfect Spot:)"

      November 2017

      This is a great place to work and connect with nature & culture. The amazing ocean with whales going by, beautiful small fishing town community and wifi to get all your work projects completed. This is the best for work-life balance; quiet working mornings, kitesurfing lessons in the wind of the afternoon, delicious seafood lunch, beach walks and evening laughs with locals & global conscious travelers. I love this place!

      "Amazing stay!"

        November 2017

        I love this place so much!! Spent over 7 months in this amazing little town and beach. Living and working there are memories I will always treasure. I traveled all over the world and Santa Marianita is simply unique. I can't think of a better place to experience connection through slow travel with Inge and her family as hosts.

        "Peace and quiet for working and/or finding yourself"

          November 2017

          I really enjoyed my stay in Punta La Barca. I spent almost 3 month only in the village before I had to leave due to my visa. I had plenty of space and quiet to work on my projects. The social life, in addition, was great. Always time for a chat about how to improve the world or we just played beach tennis or I quickly went for a bit of kitesurfing. Everything was very relaxed. Often after a day of work we just sat together around a fire and chatted along. Not many local people speak English here, so some Spanish is very very helpful. But eventually, I always got what I wanted. The owner and some other none-locals speak English though.

          "Great people, good internet, wonderful atmosphere, amazing spot"

            November 2017

            It s a unique place.. you're totally away from the ever busy world, yet so close to nature, yourself, and surrounded with likeminded ideas. I ve seen various ideas develop from scratch to implementation, thanks to the time that you find by living in this no-stress authentic fishing village. Easy acces also to plenty of outdoor sports to relax the mind and move the body (kitesurf, beachtennis, a long deserted beach, stand-up paddle..). It is, really, a little undiscovered peace of heaven :).

            1 Thank Inge
