Inns/Posadas in Chocó

Cabaña La Tagua


At the intersection of the only two roads in town, you’ll find Cabañas la Tagua, one of only two posadas in Joví. Despite its name, the posada is not a cabin exactly, but a two-floor wooden building. The first floor is a tiled, open-air dining area dominated by a huge wooden table and chairs. They serve meals here, which they cook in a large kitchen at the back of the building.

On the second floor are four bedrooms, which flank a narrow hallway and a pleasant covered balcony with hammocks. The bedrooms are simple, with very narrow windows and no extra furniture. Two have their own bathroom. Two share the bathroom at the end of the hall. The rooms are all open at the top.

The posada is very laid back and is ideal for travelers looking to spend some extra time in the community of Jovi. It is convenient to the mangroves, which you can tour with the community’s guide association. Jovi’s wide beach is just a few hundred meters behind the posada.

Since the posada is in the middle of the town, expect at least some noise during the evening. The bar across the street is a popular hangout and sometimes in the afternoon will turn up its music loud enough to hear from the beach. Things get quiet fast when they turn off the municipal power around 10:00 pm.


Four second-floor rooms - two of which have double beds and private bathrooms and two with four bunked beds and a shared bathroom. Rooms are open at the top. All rooms have windows but are somewhat dark nonetheless.


Three meals are included in the price.
