Property Description

Casas Viejas is the home of travellers and nature lovers in the Sierra Nevada! We are located at the heart of finca La Victoria, one of the biggest and most famous coffee farms in the mountains of northern Colombia, 30min from Minca and 20km from Santa Marta. Keeping with the rustic style of the coffee haciendas of the region, we offer comfortable accommodation and a cozy atmosphere where you can relax, exchange with other travellers and enjoy stunning mountain views.

Treat yourself with our delicious food – a blend of local and international cuisine – and savouring handcrafted local beers from the tap in our Jungle Bar. We also organise various outdoors and cultural activities (horse-riding, hiking, bird-watching, visit to the coffee factory, ...), designed to explore and connect with the luxuriant nature of La Victoria farm. We are also the perfect place to get a traditional indigenous massage or a morning yoga-stretching session in the middle of the jungle. Our hostel lodge is also the ideal place to start your hike to Cerro Kennedy, a summit from where you can see the amazing snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

**Important: For getting here from Minca, you can either take a moto-taxi or a jeep (30min ride), or walk all the way up to here for 2 hours. Please plan to arrive as early as possible, the gates of the finca close at 5:30pm and after this hour the way can get longer and more expensive.

    Absolutely perfect. The location is beyond stunning, and even the Moto taxi ride up was something special. I felt extremely welcomed, and the environment lends itself perfectly to quiet, restful time alone, whilst also being very easy to meet others. The food was delicious, and I loved sharing meals round the table with other travellers. Can't recommend enough!

    Before we booked, we were concerned that the food and drinks were going to be expensive since the hostel is out the way! We were pleasantly surprised to get insane lunches for $15000 COP and amazing craft beer for $7000 COP at happy hour! Casa Viejas is peaceful and a perfect place to read a book, meet people or just admire the spectacular view while having a coffee from the surrounding eco-friendly plantation. Our only regret was not staying another night.

    Loved my stay here!! It is neat impossible to find hot water in this area, and this place on the top of a mountain has it, along with incredible views from the shower! It was magical. Many types of birds, including hummingbirds, on sight, delicious food, salsa dancing and a fire at night, yoga in the morning, and a great place to start a hike from and watch the sunset ♡ Recommend to anyone going to Minca! Just know it IS up a mountain so be prepared to pay for a taxi or mototaxi going up

    Casa Viejas is a good place for some chill time. Bar is really nice and cozy with local brewed beers voor 7K pesos during Happy Hour. The tours (horseriding 70K, renting a bike 70K, waterfall hike 20k and birdwatching 60k) are a bit overpriced because you're in the middle of nowhere. The food is really good and fresh (veg/non-veg 25K). It's difficult to get there, so maybe they should invest in the road and also on new bunkbeds. But atmosphere and views are amazing.

    What a wonderful stay at casa Viejas! Accommodations were super comfortable and beautiful. You can't beat the view all over the property! We did yoga and the waterfall hike and both were great. Food is amazing - 10/10 would recommend.

    Probably my favourite hostel I stayed in during my month in Colombia. Absolutely stunning location, so peaceful and well worth the bumpy ride to get there. All of the food was exceptional with really good veggie options; the communal dinners were wonderful. The dorms and bathrooms are done to a high standard. Not having WiFi is bliss. The pool wasn't quite finished when I stayed, but once it is I'm sure it will be fantastic.

    I adored this place. It take a little bit to get up to from the actual town of minca but it’s well worth it. The view is simply amazing. The staff is friendly and we had a very fun time dancing with some of them after dinner. My only critique is there’s construction going on for a pool so it takes away a little from the relaxation. They said it’ll be done in about 3 weeks so if you can come then, I’d recommend it even more!
