Minca is a beautiful and well-known village in the Sierra Nevada of Colombia.

You can decide to walk from Minca to Carpe Diem or vice versa – it takes roughly 6 hours.

On your way you pass beautiful waterfalls, amazing vistas of Santa Marta and the surrounding mountains, and chocolate and coffee farms. In general you are surrounded by an overwhelming nature.

You might spot howler monkeys, toucans, eagles, many other bird species, sloths, and other wildlife. This is the true nature you are looking for.

You need to download the WIKILOC application on your Smartphone for doing this hike. Once you download WIKILOC you need to sign in (all for free). After you have downloaded the application, you search for the following hike:

Finca Carpe Diem hikes: from Finca Carpe Diem to Minca one way

You need to use the exact wording na dit is made by Kobe De Pourcq. There are many  Minca hikes made by other persons but you can not always trust them, so look for the right trail.

You can find all the useful information related to the hike under the description on WIKILOC. It is straightforward. If you decide to do the hike you can use the application offline for 1 month for free. Enough time to use it here J.
