Minca is the first town on the way to the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta. Only 30 minutes from the city of Santa Marta (14 kms), the vegetation changes completely and the temperature falls down to 20 degrees.
You will note the presence of the Sierra Nevada and the river Minca crossing a large part of the town. This village is also a typical coffee producer, and you can buy organic coffee from the Sierra Nevada. You can enjoy your stay, make excursions either to the river or to the "pozo azul"- the blue fountain, explore the hiking trails and buy delicious ecological coffee!
Minca is a very picturesque town on the way to the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta. The temperature is an agreeable average of 17 degrees and if you stay for several weeks in Santa Marta, you might just need a bath in the River Minca to rejuvenate and refresh yourself. On the week- ends, you will find many local people that come from Minca and other towns of Santa Marta to cook their "Sancocho" (delicious vegetables soup) at the coasts of the river. It is also a delight to take a short excursion to "Pozos Colorados," the blue fountain, to bathe in the waterfalls. We recommend you to buy organic coffee there to taste the flavour of our local coffee zone!
