Casa Loma Minca

The entrance is behind the church, turn left at church, walk up 200 stairs following signs. No address system in Minca!


Casa Loma is a beautiful wooden hill top house that offers one of the most amazing views from any property in Colombia, particularly at sunset.

Situated above the town, you'll overlook Minca, Santa Marta, the sea, plus the mountains of the Sierra Nevada and forest all at the same time—truly unique.

During sun-set or while sharing our amazing vegetarian meals we encourage to swap stories with other travelers in our wi-fi free forest zone, while watching mother natures natural plasma screen.

Sleep under the starts in one of our forest cabins, spot a tucan perched in our trees, spot the full moon, watch red squirrels, get back to nature!

Turn left after the church in the main town sqaure. After 50 meters the road bends to the right after 50 meters more you ll see the sign directing you up the hill to Casa Loma. We are 10 - 15 mins walk up hill but its well worth the walk!
