Visiting Minca

Santa Marta Guide

Things to do in Minca

Minca has many things to do: hiking in the jungle, visiting coffee plantations in the jungle, swimming by the waterfall and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Many of Minca’s best hostels and hotels are located on the hills and surrounded by magnificent scenery. In addition, if you are lucky, you will see the snow-capped peaks of Colombia’s highest mountain range. 


You will appreciate the incredible variety of birds and lush flora of Minca. You will understand why it has become a favourite destination for many travellers and a must-see if you travel to Colombia. I would even say that this is one of the must-see places in Colombia, especially when visiting the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

The area around Minka is great for hiking, mountain biking, coffee and chocolate tours, and bird watching. You can visit several waterfalls around Minka, or simply relax in the city and admire over 50 hummingbird species in the area.
