El Macario Café, a spectacular place to taste quality coffee, have a drink or have some light snacks with friends. El Macario Café is part of AlterNative Hostel, so here you can meet people from different parts of the world and enjoy an unforgettable experience.

The idea to start El Macario was born of our taste for coffee and, we recognize, we are a beverage enthusiast. We would like you to try the best artisan coffees in the area and the world, along with a menu of small plates and delicious juices.
