Full description
Close to Santa Marta, in Sierra Nevada's foothill lies the town of Minca. Famous for its dense forests, waterfalls, fresh climate and coffee farms, this place will amaze you with all richness and tranquility.

After being picked up from your hotel in Santa Marta you will embark on a short uphill trip to Minca. Your first stop will be at La Victoria for a coffee tour that will make you understand the special traits of Sierra Nevada's coffee and the differences between coffee from other regions of Colombia. Here you will be able to taste the flavor and get to know the process it takes to produce a cup of coffee.

Enjoying the mountainous scenery of Minca, and the faraway view of Santa Marta, you will make a stop for a delicious lunch. Afterward, you will go through the town of Minca to arrive at Marinka, a relaxing place surrounded by a dense forest and marvelous waterfalls. With just a short walk, you will be able to get as close as you like to the waterfalls and even bathe under their refreshing waters. If you like you may also rest at the large hammock beds while you enjoy the serenity of your surroundings. Finally, you will return to Santa Marta to return to your hotel.

Absolutely terrible. Most senseless waste of time in Colombia !!! And for so much money !!! Absolute insolence !!! Guide says next to nothing and certainly doesn't speak English !!! The route is completely pointless. You can sit around a mini waterfall for over an hour ... absolutely meaningless !!!

Good tour, exciting information about bamboo, coffee and cocoa.

Nice hike to the waterfall. The description is not quite consistent with the actual tour. From the 2 hour hike nothing was mentioned and the big hammocks were also missing ... The tour but we still liked it and we would book it again.
