Minca is a small village of 650 m above sea level in Santa Marta reached by taking a collective (shared taxi) through a mountain road rutted 45min from "Minca Station" on Calle 11 with 12 in the Public Market of Santa Marta. The town center itself is a quaint and cozy little mountain town with much to offer, including great restaurants, pool tables, bars, hotels, internet, around the city center. _ _ . It is when you explore its very mountainous edges when you discover the true magic of Minca in some truly spectacular hostels, farms and places to relax by the river or a beer and panoramic sea views in the distance.
