Minca, renowned for its natural beauty, is in Magdalena Department, Colombia. It is located about 15 km south east from Santa Marta.

Minca is a small village inhabited by 800 people at an elevation of 650m in the Sierra Nevada above Santa Marta. It is famous for its organic coffee and has a much cooler temperature than the sweltering Santa Marta. The village is charming, and has in the past few years grown as a traveler and birdwatching destination after the conclusion of the armed conflict. It attracts mostly backpackers who want a week or two off from the beaten track and indulge into tranquility. It's a great base for hiking, mountain-biking, bird-watching and other outdoor activities, offering fresh mountain breeze, over 300 bird species nearby and spectacular views. For such a small town Minca has a really diverse and interesting history, so be sure to ask about it or visit the local memorial center (its small and rustic but a great source of information in English or Spanish).
