The Seahorse Tourist Inn is affordable accommodation with good quality services. They’re not a big resort or hotel, so their staff will be sure to take care of your needs right away.

The restaurant and rooms in the vicinity have an exquisite view of the sea, which is very relaxing in itself. Meals are more fun when done by the beach or with an ocean view, and you will have that here. The rooms they have here are spacious and great for couples or family/ friends traveling together.

The Seahorse Tourist Inn’s private beach

The inn’s private beach is great for some quiet sunbathing or reading a book by a shade. Your group can play beach volleyball fun or maybe frisbee by the shore. Guests can also enjoy some snorkeling or simply just get drifted away by the gentle sea.

The inn is about 20 minutes to the nearest hospital, for emergency purposes. And they have good reviews from their guests – friendly staff, great food, white sand beach, and friendly owner. Also that the tourist inn is relaxing and small, a must-go-to in Medellin and it’s only a 3-minute walk to the town proper.

The Seahorse Tourist Inn is also a great venue for parties and beach weddings. For parties, they can also rent out a karaoke machine for you guys to enjoy and sing your hearts out.

The inn is a good venue for birthdays such as this 70th celebration ~
A nice blue and gold themed 70th birthday party ~
And oh, this sunset beach wedding set up – looks simple yet beautiful with all that tranquil scenery ~
Oh, the sunsets/ sunrise here is lovely. You can never go wrong with a pretty sunset and the gentle sea breeze ~

This is also a good place to stay if your group is planning to spend a day filled with adventure over at Funtastic Island. Oh, the kids will definitely love that, and when you get to the inn, you will be able to relax.

Evenings here are peaceful and all you can hear are the sound of the waves crashing through the shore. Just add in a few glasses of wine and do some stargazing. A perfect way to end the night, don’t you think?
