Infrastructure at El Cantil Ecolodge Hotel; Nuquí, Chocó, Colombia


El Cantil has seven comfortable rooms for single, double and multiple occupancy. The simple architectural design lacks excess and gently blends in with the surrounding natural environment, ensuring you a peaceful and harmonious rest. The cabins are built with immunised wood, shingle roofs, and each has its own spacious bathroom with jungle views. Every room has good quality mattresses and mosquito nets on each bed, built-in wardrobes, and a terrace with hammocks and an ocean view. 
El Cantil Ecolodge has been built under the premise that ecotourism shouldn't mean discomfort. The common areas consist of a kiosk-style restaurant with a 35-person capacity, two sun terraces with excellent ocean views and a hammock area. The panoramic view from the restaurant makes breakfasts, lunches and dinners unique experiences, which, added to the famous flavours of the hotel's seafood menu, will not let you forget your visit to El Cantil. 
We have been accredited with the Colombian Environmental Seal, and the Certification in High Level Touristic Sustainability as given by Swiss-based company, Cotectna. (You can see the certificates in the photo gallery.)
El Cantil has been catalogued by Lonely Planet Colombia tourist guide as the number one ecolodge in Colombia and one of the top 11 places to eat in Colombia. We have also been featured in National Geographic Traveler's favourite hotels in South America. This has put El Cantil on the map as one of Colombia's greenest and most recommended hotels and the ideal place to spend a unique vacation.
