Property Description

Casas Viejas is the home of travelers and nature lovers in the Sierra Nevada! We are located at the heart of finca La Victoria, one of the biggest and most famous coffee farms in the mountains of northern Colombia, 30min from Minca and 20km from Santa Marta. Keeping with the rustic style of the coffee haciendas of the region, we offer comfortable accommodation and a cozy atmosphere where you can relax, exchange with other travelers and enjoy stunning mountain views.

Treat yourself with our delicious food a blend of local and international cuisine and savouring handcrafted local beers from the tap in our Jungle Bar. We also organise various outdoors and cultural activities ( hiking, bird-watching, visit to the coffee factory, ...), designed to explore and connect with the luxuriant nature of La Victoria farm. We are also the perfect place to get a traditional indigenous massage or a morning yoga-stretching session in the middle of the jungle. Our hostel lodge is also the ideal place to start your hike to Cerro Kennedy, a summit from where you can see the amazing snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

**Important: Were out of Minca Town, but still part of Minca, For getting here from Minca, you can either take a moto-taxi or a jeep (30min ride), or walk all the way up to here for 2 hours. Please plan to arrive as early as possible, the gates of the finca close at 5:30pm and after this hour the way can get longer and more expensive. We´re located out of town (8km) so, orginice in advance your trip in order to be uphill before sunset.

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Food was delicious with a set menu for the evening with 2 choices. The infinity pool has an amazing view, very tranquil atmosphere but sociable in the evenings as everyone eats at the same time. Stayed in both a private and dorm room and both were clean and well equipped with comfy beds. Located 30mins from Minca town so you need to take moto taxis around, and you have to stay in the property during the evenings as the gate shuts at 5pm. But this worked for us as

Everything was perfect, we loved the heated pool, swings, hammock area, bonfire at night, happy hour, tours, and really great food options. The landscaping around the hostel is full of fruit trees and flowers and so beautiful, you could bird watch from your dorm window. We stayed an extra night and we’ll miss it. Also noticed that it was super clean, bathrooms cleaned multiple times a day. Thank you!!
