About Carpe Diem
Finca Carpe Diem is a hostel, eco-farm and nature reserve; a land of cacao, coffee and gorgeous waterfalls near Minca and Santa Marta
We offer an amazing peaceful natural paradise with a large swimming pool alongside a beautiful river. You sleep as a baby in our affordable indigenous styled eco-huts, private rooms and dorms.
We are known to be unique for our setting: an extremely beautiful natural surrounding with lots of private spaces (the hostel facilities are spread out over a few hundred meters with connecting natural paths in between); a peaceful tranquil atmosphere that is hard to find elsewhere.
Furthermore, we are one of few hostels in Colombia that are located alongside a crystalline river, with dozens of swimming holes and impressive waterfalls just around the corner (some are over 40 meters high).
The centerpiece of the hostel is a large swimming pool with lots of terraces, ideal to sunbath. A bit further on the farm you find breathtaking views over Santa Marta, Taganga, Rodadero and the ocean.
Finca Carpe Diem is perfect for relaxing, swimming & outdoor activities. Many excursions can be done: visit nature reserves; learn how to grow and make your own coffee; cultivate honey and make cheese and yoghurt on site; taste chocolate in our neighbors cacao farm; follow tracks throughout our farm and nature reserve of over 50 hectares; taste some of our tropical fruits; go swimming & find crazy waterfalls, discover pre-Colombian cities…. Last but not least, charge your batteries!
We harvest, process and use all kinds of local products, such as organic coffee, honey and cheese. Furthermore, we grow dozens of tropical fruits, some of them you can taste all year long; and keep animals, including horses, cows and goats.
You can taste many of our farm-grown ingredients in our kitchen and bar. Furthermore we provide food a la carte. Daily you can choose between meat, fish, pasta and lots of vegetarian dishes. Our breakfast also comes with homemade bread.
We are located between Santa Marta (35 min) Tayrona national park (30 min) and close to Minca, as well as near to most tourist destinations at the Carribean Coast, such as Taganga, Rodadero and Palomino.Learn more about usHow to get here
