  • Very good place to rest and diving, the area of the Natural Park of Tayrona offers several places with great wealth to this practice. Before planning these dives, it is important that you find out if the pair Park is open diving.

  • The beautiful and green village of Minca is located in the Santa Marta mountains just 30 - 40 min leaving the Center, public transport (collective taxi) must take it early very early! since they are private cars (5 people) or small vans (7-10 people) but you are won't be at his destination until the full quota. I had to wait about 2 hours to speak to Minca or if you prefer you could take a private taxi, which will cost between 40,000 and 50,000 COP. The most spectacular of Minca is undoubtedly the climate. Just you arrive you can feel the freshness that provides the finding in a place full of vegetation, water, wildlife and mountain. Entering the village small restaurants are with a variety of options in price and cuisine, almost all include a delicious organic coffee in the region. What to visit in Minca? Waterfalls Marinkam, Pozo Azul, Las Piedras, walk to Los Pinos, Casa Loma, finca cafeteria victory, among other things, the important thing is how much time spend here, if only you come for a day or you hospedaras in one of the hostels. How to get to all these places is walking as a first option, they are beautiful but somewhat strenuous trails, the second is a mototaxi peroo, I think the prices are very high, so you could go on a motorcycle but return walking. It depends on your budget and time. My recommendation would be in case of stay do it in some Uptown hostel, have enviable views, mist, birds, unimaginable sunsets. In case of go an only day, go to the waterfalls Marinkam or well blue, relaxation is and spend the day. All beauty. Minca was a surprise in my trip by Colombia as not was in my plans, a couple of Colombian me it recommended for rest of the heat overwhelming of the Caribbean and now I is them recommend to you no doubt, it van love.
