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 place to relax. They had wifi whenever the power was running. And even when the whole area of Minca and Santa Marta lost power, then they had a generator they would run periodically. The views are great and they have plenty of hammocks and spaces to relax and read a book.

    One of the most beautiful hostels I’ve ever stayed at. Yes, it’s far away from the town - but that’s the beauty of it! Can’t beat the view, especially at sunset. Great place to get stuck in a hammock for hours on end! Facilities (beds, toilets) are basic, but they are cleaner constantly. Showers freezing, but with an incredible view. Vegetarian meals were delicious, and eating together created a family feel in the hostel. Can’t imagine there is anywhere better to stay in Minca.

    Cancelled my stay at Casa Éléments (the famous one) just to stay here! Best decision. The vibe is like being at a big cottage with the fam! Cheap lunch and dinner and portions are massive. Night time camp fires amazing sunset point and all around good vibes. This place was a little home and the staff was so fab! Even got up graded to a private room just because they found out it was me and my boyfriend who had checked into a dorm. It was such a nice gesture just to give us a nicer stay! Perfect!

    An amazing hostel. Great, chilled atmosphere where it’s super easy to meet other travellers. Eating lunch and dinner together creates a really social space- the food is so so good and the servings are generous. The common areas are super nice and the ‘Punta’ lookout for sunset is amazing. So many things you can do whilst your there and the staff are so happy to help. Best hostel I’ve been to in South America!

    Absolutely incredible! The hostel is located up in the mountains of a Minca and overlooks the forest. It's a truly amazing sight, and I would definitely return in a heartbeat if given the opportunity. Perfect to relax, read and book and unwind.

    Stay and extra night because you’ll want to. Most incredible views from the hostel; do the pozo azul hike, and look into a couple of the tours that the Mundo staff have available. (I did the Bee and permaculture tour.) All the food at mundo is vegetarian and almost 30-40% is sustainably grown from the farm right down the road. Everyone eating dinner together creates a really lovely social (pero tranquila) family environment. It’s a little pricy with all the meals but you get what u pay for! 💕
