Property Description

Set in the uniquely bio-diverse mountains of the Sierra Nevada, our farm-hostel is a place where guests and workers can enjoy the beauty of one of nature's world wonders whilst also learning about environmental sustainability, organic farming and indigenous culture. Furthermore, the area's natural endowments provide endless opportunities for outdoor activities, hikes and wildlife-watching. Originally, the property was part of an old coffee farm. During the construction of Mundo Nuevo, our goal was to preserve the original structure of the building whilst making it as functional and comfortable as possible for our guests and resident staff members. All our furniture and constructions are made of fallen trees from the property.

Mundo Nuevo is located in the uniquely bio-diverse mountains of the Sierra Nevada. You will have easy access to our fruit trees, vegetable and flower gardens.You will enjoy stunning surrounding views of valleys, mountains, sky, and the Caribbean sea. If you are in the mood to relax, there is a large communal room with sofas and hammocks. The economic support that hostel guests provide is crucial to helping us achieve our sustainability goals. However, the purpose of having a hostel goes beyond economic necessity; we hope that Mundo Nuevo will become a sustainability museum, a place where people from all over the world can learn, debate and contribute to a cause that is relevant to all of us. You will have access to the 3 vegetable gardens, to the Awindua indigenous huts, and multiple trails along the mountain. Mundo Nuevo Minca is not only a place where one can find peace and enjoy the wonders of what nature has to offer, but it is also an educational centre where we aim to spread awareness about the importance of a more sustainable living in order to ensure the preservation of our planet and its resources for the generations to come.

Mundo Nuevo has much to offer, including camping grounds with view of the Sierra, hammocks perched on the morning-sun-ridge, cozy dormitories and beautiful double/triple rooms. (some ensuite).

    I really enjoyed my 3 nights at Mundo Nuevo. It is up in the mountains from the town which makes the view incredible. It is a bit of a trek to get up there from Minca but you have the option to walk, take a moto taxi, or take a Jeep. It’s worth it for the view. The hostel is making great sustainability efforts and serves only vegetarian food, which is always delicious. I would highly recommend Mundo Nuevo those who enjoy hiking and relaxing in nature. The staff were also super sweet and helpful!

    Loved staying at this hostel. Amazing location in the mountains. Great views and makes you feel immersed in nature. We enjoyed meeting the locals, playing pool, hiking up the hill, the friendly dogs and the dinner was so good! Nice place to kick back and chill in hammocks or socialize in the large common area.

    Lovely place in the hills of Minca, with amazing views and great vegetarian food. From minca, you can take a 4x4 (80k), a mototaxi (20k) or just walk, which will takes you about 1-2 sweaty hrs and is definitely not as terrifying as the taxi drivers tell you. the hostel is very remote, but they serve amazing meals. Make sure to bring snacks though and warm clothes as it gets quite cold at night. Overall an amazing place to chill out and enjoy a wonderful eco experience.

    A really blissful stay. The rooms are small but the beds are very comfy. The communal hammocks are perfect for reading and watching the sunset. Delicious very generous portions for dinner! A perfect place to stay - much better to be out of the Minca town itself as you have the beautiful views.

    Hostel in a beautiful location, prefect for sunset. You're a bit isolated but I get the impression most are like this in Minca. We got a jeep up and down ad group ad the track is long but this is potentially very expensive in smaller numbers.They had communal vegetarian meal at set times. Lunch was great. I was a tiny bit disappointed with the dinner main. The facilities are lovely for such a remote location and the whole place has a lovely relaxed charm. A great place to chill for a few days.

    We really enjoyed our stay here and tripping around Minca. Had some great days out walking/trekking and meeting the locals. Awesome views from the hostel, bit of an adventure to get there. Hostel does not offer a guest kitchen, but their vegetarian meals were tasty, reasonable value and good portions. Stayed for 4 nights in a private room and our room wasn't cleaned, so the floor was a bit dirty by the end. Would highly recommend this hostel and Minca to other travellers

    It’s pretty hard getting to this hostel but really worth it for the lovely view and peaceful location, you can also access loads of hikes from there and they do the best cauliflower cheese I’ve ever had.
