WHAT TO DO
Hacienda La Victoria do a very informative tour of their organic coffee farm; one of the first in all of Colombia. There is now a brewery on site where you can taste some locally made beers…on tap!
Las Cascadas Marinka
Walk to the waterfalls and enjoy the refreshing water.
Cool off in this fresh mountain water natural pool.
Walk down to the huge boulders in the river just outside of town.
The day trek to Los Pinos and back to Minca is a stunning walk, great for wildlife spotting. You will pass through cloud forest at the top and enjoy spectacular mountain views. It is also great exercise – as it’s a good 2.5 – 3 hours hard walking uphill whichever way you go!
Cerro Kennedy – viewpoint for Los Nevados (snow peaks)
Stunning views over the Sierra Nevada and of the highest snow peaks this close to the sea in the world. You can see the sea, the city and the snow at the same time.
