MINCA

Welcome to Casas Viejas by Masaya, a singular peaceful hostel designed for worldwide travelers and nature lovers who are looking for an immersive and revitalizing experience into the beautiful green mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Our lodge is located in Finca La Victoria, a 500-hectares coffee farm founded in 1892, one of the oldest in Colombia.

In a few years only, Minca has quickly become a must destination in Colombia. With a more temperate weather than its neighbor Santa Marta, this little and colorful town is the entrance gate to the natural treasures of the Sierra Nevada. Minca is famous for its abundant biodiversity and indigenous cultural heritage. With its numerous waterfalls, coffee plantations or birdwatching paths, Minca is a real green paradise for nature lovers or travelers looking for an alternative to the crowded beaches of Cartagena, Santa Marta or Palomino.
