Property Description

Finca Carpe Diem Ecolodge is a hidden gem for hiking and relaxation lovers in Paso del Mango, near Minca. We offer three swimming pools, magnificent views over endless forests and river access from the house.
There are lots of hikes you can make (short and long, guided or on your own). We also provide yoga classes, massages and farm-to-table meals.
Our facilities are set up in the midst of lush forests with lots of open and green spaces between rooms and communal areas. We don' t have close neighbours, there are no bars or restaurants nearby (except ours :)) and traffic is very low.
Wherever you go or walk, you will feel the fresh air and tranquility around you. This remote situation can be inspiring and makes it relatively easier for us to comply with COVID-19 procedures and precautions. Geographically we are located in the Minca area (North Colombia) but our exact location is the village of Paso del Mango (READ DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY), a beautiful tropical valley crossed by two rivers. The landscape is the same but less people and more wild nature compared to busy Minca.

- The lodge is located right within our farm and nature reserve. You will be surrounded by mountains, rivers and forests on every side.
- Three swimming pools with large terraces, and spectacular views over the surrounding mountains and jungle.
- Located alongside a crystalline river with private entrances, dozens of swimming holes and impressive waterfalls nearby (some are over 40 meters high).
- Unique excursions within short walking distance to coffee and cacao farms, lost cities, nature reserves, private 360° viewpoints, waterfalls and birding places.
-We offer yoga classes and massages.
- All rooms come with air conditioning or natural rooftop materials so you have a good rest at all times.
- All beds have first quality mattresses. Our private double rooms are provided with King size mattresses and cotton bed linen.
- A lounge with comfortable seats, and huts with lots of hammocks to relax.
- Unique restaurant with family styled healthy 'farm-to-table' dinners. We also offer meat, chicken and fish a la carta. Our breakfast comes with homemade bread.
- We are committed to social and environmental goals. For example, we are undertaking a tree planting project. Also, all our staff lives in the village nearby and we work with locally manufactured ingredients, often from our own farm.
- Important: you will be on a Colombian finca. There is loooots of space and nature on all sides. You will find a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable environment that is hard to find elsewhere.

Check in at room is at 2PM. Check out is at 10 AM. We accept credit cards for which we charge 6 %.

Policy description:
Cancellations within 8 and 15 days before arrival 50% of the whole stay will be charged. Cancellations within the 7 days before arrival: 100% of the whole stay. View House Rules

    This awesome place is deep in the beautiful Colombian nature. The staff are friendly/helpful - we had a great time with them. We also fell in love with the friendly dalmatian named Cami. In addition to the nice room, and three (3) amazing pools, other adventures are available - we enjoyed making our own organic coffee from the plants, visiting the honeybees, and hiking to the spectacular waterfalls. Food was good also - 100% recommend, and we hope to be back soon.

    Amazing place. Beautiful and very nice family ambiance. If you want to meet great people while not partying as much as in Minca. Beautiful bungalows and piscines with view.

    This place is fantastic! I ended up there because of a friend’s recommendation. I had the fortune to have the whole finca for myself for a couple of days. The housekeeper took care of me and prepares an extraordinary chocolate cake. During this crazy pandemic time they have all the protocols in order and the staff is very responsible. Perfect place to enjoy the nature, the river and do outdoors activities.

    We loved Finca Carpe Diem. Such a beautiful location. Loved the hammocks at the very top of the hill! The food was delicious with a variety of daily options. Lots of activities near the hostel and great hiking & waterfalls. Everyone was so nice, would definitely stay here again. Special thank you to Angie to made our check-out so easy she arranged our mototaxis & even arranged for a reliable cab to meet us at the bottom of the mountain & take us to the airport!

    Wonderful remote escape up in the Sierra Nevada mountains. A place to relax and to switch off from the real world, with plenty of opportunities for hiking, swimming and activities. The wifi only being available in common areas really helped me to switch off. The staff were super friendly and the farm to table food delish! Recommend this place.

    Loved this place! It is very remotely located, perfect for chill-out, hiking, and relaxing at the pool. The food is AMAZING! They'll put everything you order on your tab and you pay at check-out, which is very convenient. The ride to get there is the first adventure, take the moto-taxi, it's so much fun! They have three pools and a pool-bar. Only downside: wifi didn't work in most of the rooms (which is usually fine, but with current Corona situation, needed to stay in touch with ppl more).

    An incredible hostel in an off the beaten path location. The waterfall hike is a must! The food is great but expensive. You must take a moto-taxi to get to the hostel. It is an adventure in its self and costs 18-20k COP each way. If you plan on leaving and coming back multiple times, it can get expensive. Fortunately, there is plenty to do at the hostel and it is a great place to relax. Would recommend.
