Property Description

Reopened due to Covid restrictions, new to HostelWorld, and excited to welcome you!
Tucked into the mountain jungle and sitting on a river, La Casa del Pozo Azul encompasses all the beauty and diversity of Minca, Colombia.
This serene gateway is nestled under the canopy, about a beautiful 20-minute (2.1km) walk from the Minca town center. It is burrowed in the depths of La Sierra Nevada De Santa Marta, the tallest costal mountain in the world! This quaint hostal provides a relaxing home base for all those coming to experience the rich nature of Minca.

Location is as key as it is to you as it is to us. Our love for Minca at La Casa del Pozo Azul comes from its infinite allure, from the small to the grand. The location of this hostel was chosen to be slightly off the beaten path so that the scenery is right in front of you and the adventure is all around you. Not only can you hear tranquil sounds of the running river, but you can also go right in with only a few seconds away! It's truly hard to beat a cooling dip in the Caribbean mountains on a hot, humid day! All around the hostal is abundant wildlife with a vast array of different species of birds and other animals. Day and night, only the soothing sounds of the jungle can be heard.

Not the honking of taxis, not revving of motorcycles. Thinking it might be too remote? Have no fear, when you are looking for adventure, the best hiking that Minca has to offer is only minutes away! And while more remote than some hostels in Minca, La Casa del Pozo Azul does not lack on all the amenities you need to both work or play! Guests can enjoy our onsite Italian restaurant and bar for food and drink.

The hostal has numerous spacious indoor and outdoor common areas with comfortable seating and gorgeous views of the sounding nature. Places to chat with new friends or enjoy some solitude. With that and Wi-Fi speeds up to 30 mbps, it's the perfect spot to work remote without feeling like you are working at all :)

La Casa del Pozo Azul caters to travelers, remote workers, and anyone looking for a revitalizing escape!
Complimentary to the pristine nature, we have hot showers and laundry service is available. All rooms are spacious and come with a private bathroom. Along with your reservation, you will be provided a free breakfast each morning of your stay! There is a 24-hour front desk at the property, and our check-in times are flexible so you can be making the most of everyday during your stay!
So come stop by to experience the true beauty of Minca! We are excited to show you all there is to offer! View House Rules

    This was an amazing place to stay in minca, the photos definitely do not do it justice. It's right next to Pozo azul (swimming pools) and abt a 2 mile walk into town I think but you can always take a mototaxi. Its clean, the food is delicious, they have 2 cats that are so cute. The staff is so nice and helpful and the property is a beautiful place to relax- right by the river surrounded by beautiful trees and plants

    A magical house in the jungle, just by the river. Great food, great people. For pure silence and calm time.

    A little out of the way for foot traffic……but plenty of moto’s to get you around…..luggage is another consideration. Close to the bigger pools for a refreshing swim and local ambience. A laid back, tranquil place that will try to go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one.

    La Casa del Pozo Azul was a peaceful oasis - in the middle of the jungle, you can hear the river flow, it’s the perfect place to relax and step away from the hustle and bustle. 10 min walk to Cascada del Pozo Azul, 25min walk to Minca. The staff was very welcoming. Our only regret was the absence of hot water :( but they assured us this would soon be fixed.

    Lots of spiders and other small biting insects in the bed, had to leave after the first night. I think some of the rooms are better than others, but the room I stayed in was rough. Mold all the walls and ceiling, mushrooms growing in the shower. No hot water either.

    Our stay here wasn’t great :( We were the only other guests for the first two nights and on the second night the power went out for over 12 hours. The only member of staff around then was the chef who didn’t tell us what was going on at all until we asked. Another member of staff finally arrived on the last day as there were more check ins but we think we were just forgotten about a bit. The location next to the river is great but maybe we just got unlucky with the dates that we booked.
