    A plan different to being so close to the sea is to climb the mountain to Minca. A small town nestled in the mountains where you will have incredible views of the Sierra Nevada as well as Santa Marta and the Caribbean Sea. You can explore rivers, waterfalls, coffee farms and farms which produce cocoa. The village has some very interesting places to visit such as the Museum of cocoa. A different experience on the tour of Magdalena, which is much more than just Sun and beach.
