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.

We accept credit cards for which we charge 6 %.

    Amazing social hostel with friendly & helpful staff. This place is off the beaten track (20min uphill by mototaxi from Bonda) and has 3 swimming pools with spectacular mountain views. There are a number of hikes and experiences nearby; highlights for me included the cacao farm, mini lost city and the tranquil Silvestre waterfall. The hostel food is great and there is always a vegetarian option available. Would definitely stay here again!

    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!

    Great place with great atmosphere! Due to Christmas we couldn’t do any tours but there was plenty of shorter hikes you could do on your own

    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.

    Views are stunning. Staff are great. A little pricey for food but the food is also very good. The adventure of the moto taxis is also a huge plus. Definitely recommend.

    Unique hostel in the middle of nowhere. Right place to hang out after Santa Marta to relax, hike, and enjoy the nearby waterfalls. Food served is mainly from the nearby farm and is therefore organic and mostly homegrown. The prices are a bit more expensive, thus maybe not the right place for tight budget travellers. We got there by motorcycle. In case you are looking for safe and comparably cheap commute... we took drivers from the main road. You can reach them via whatsapp: +57 3043690487

    Location, location, location. Lovely finca surrounded by waterfalls and forest. No worries about getting here, the motorbike is thrilling, super simple and short. Food was excellent but somewhat limited and expensive long term.

    Very Good

    Cute hostal in the hills - perfect for relaxing in a hammock or in the pool, however, it was a bit of an effort to get to on the motor taxis and the rooms at the top were up about a million steps and the staff didn’t offer to help carry our bags which was a shame.
