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).

    Great hospitality, location and atmosphere. There are few places that I think this is exactly where I want to come back to, but this place fits that bill. Staff truly cares and help me get back a microfiber towel I had left at the hostel.

    Our stay at Mundo Nuevo was a highlight of our time in Colombia. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Although patchy, there is wifi in the main area, but the hostel tries to promote switching off. This created a great atmosphere every night when everyone would sit around the tables after dinner playing cards or rummy without a single phone in sight. The walk up to the hostel is a bit brutal, but you are rewarded with a free fresh juice and incredible views, including those from the loo!

    We loved our stay at Mundo Nuevo so much! Stayed in a private room, and it was so lovely with a big open window to the most stunning view of the mountains. The food was INCREDIBLE, huge portions and so so filling. Perfect place for vegetarians like my partner and myself! I recommend taking the moto taxi both up and down, as we took a Jeep on the way down and it was honestly terrifying!!!

    Really loved this hostel. The views were incredible and unforgettable! Some amazing hikes and I liked it being separate from the town but no problem to walk to every now and then. The vibe was very chilled and relaxed. The workers were all very helpful and friendly.

    Really beautiful setting up in the hills. I would take the 4x4 as the mototaxi was a bit dangerous especially after it had rained. Staff were super helpful. Lots of nice views and walks nearby. Not the place to go if you're afraid of bugs as at night they all come out. The cacao tour was fun. The meals were great, big portions and great for vegans!

    Absolutely gorgeous hostel nestled in the mountains. A bit of a hike up, but worth the effort.

    So Mundo Nuevo ended up being the most wonderful gem of hostels I encountered in Colombia and for the first time in my travels did I decide to just stay at a hostel to chill the day. Staff and owner are lovely and helpful, food is very tasty and healthy, Wifi is pretty good for the fact that youre in the jungle, and you can start hiking diretly from the hostel. If you are looking for an exclusive travel experience to remember and love nature or just nice vibes, I'd highly recommend staying here!

    Great hostel! We went here to get really good views and a chilled out atmosphere, and we got exactly that. Loved the food and the staff was awesome. The common area was great for meating people as well, especially since the food is served at certain times and everybody eats together. We also did the coffee tour that was a fifteen minute walk from the hostel, and we really liked it. The sunset was also amazing!! Can highly recommend this hostel :)

    Awesome stay at Mundo Nuevo. Really social atmosphere but not a “party” place which was perfect for us. The room was clean, the staff was very helpful and friendly. One thing that wasn’t so great I would say is the food but it didn’t matter that much. Loads of hamacs and chilling areas, fantastic views and close trails to Pozo Azul Waterfall Would definitely recommend this place!!
