La Posada del Cafe is a charming, small hotel located centrally in Salento. While there are cheaper options, La Posada is worth it not just for the homely decor but also for the kindness and assistance provided, often without prompting, by the owner Maria Elena. Having previously been married to an Englishman and lived in Virginia, Maria Elena is always willing to provide advice and help, no matter the time of day.
One downside is that the hotel's location on the main street makes it noisy in the front bedrooms, but as the town pretty much shuts down by 10pm, this isn' t much of a problem.
A thoroughlly enjoyable time was had at La Posada, much of it due to Maria Elena.
