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).

    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!

    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!

    Absolutely loved our stay at mundo nuevo! Despite being up a steep hill, it is definitely worth the mototaxi or walk up, the views are incredible from up there. The food, despite being slightly expensive (20 mil for dinner), is worth every penny - huge portions of vegetarian food that leaves you feeling healthy and rejuvenated after a long day of walking and exploring. Family style dinner makes it easy to meet people. Also a perfect place to relax and chill out. Highly recommend.

    We had an awesome stay at mundo Nuevo!! Beautiful view from up there, awesome stuff and the food was delicious and fresh! They have a Permaculture and bee farm and you can learn a lot of cool stuff doing a Workshop there. This place inspired me and I would love to come back one day. Thank you Minca and thank you mundo Nuevo for this exceptional experience!!

    Incredible hostel, VIEWS, food, staff. Thank you Jessica for your help and sense of humour. This hostel is a difficult one hour hike up from Minca town or an inexpensive, fun moto taxi. Food is great and worth the price. I highly recommend this hostel for whatever type of atmosphere you are looking for. I will definitely be back! Thank you

    Beautiful hostel and great for solo travellers to meet others. Heaps of great activities on offer too, and lots of hikes for us cheapskates. Only problem is getting up and down the hill when it’s pouring rain as mototaxis can’t come up and down when it’s too slippery. Having said that, it’s location is what makes it beautiful and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Great vibes, great ethos, great staff. Would highly recommend!
