Come and recharge your batteries in Colombia's Sierra Nevada !

Unusual jungle stay in indigenous accomodation with waterfall.


MINCA RETREAT was born of a dream : to create a place of welcome and sharing. The place was an obvious choice : Minca in Colombia's Sierra Nevada, also known as "the heart of the world" by the natives.

The river, the waterfall, the luxuriant nature, the hundreds of fruit trees and the vegetable gardens are reminiscent of a Garden of Eden!

At the bottom of the land, the waterfall, and at the top, the view of the Caribbean Sea.

The site is self-sufficient in water, electricity and food, ideal for reconnecting with nature.


MINCA RETREAT is a 30-minute walk from the small village of Minca, with no roads, only an indigenous trail.

We provide mules for transporting heavy equipment.

Minca is a small village at 650m altitude, 40 minutes from the Caribbean Sea, known for its ecological dimension, as a starting point for the Lost City, but also for its remote jungle hostels, some of the most famous in South America.

Minca is easily accessible from Cartagena or Santa Marta airports.

 As for the Sierra Nevada, it's the world's highest coastal mountain range, with 2 peaks at over 5700m altitude, the Simon Bolivar and Cristobal Colon mountains, overlooking the Caribbean Sea.


The aim of MINCA RETREAT is to organize retreats on your own or accompanied by teachers, therapists and shamans : yoga, medicinal plants, ayurvedic treatments, detox, cooking and much more.

For the more sporty, there's a multitude of hikes on offer, including the famous Lost City, as well as canyoning, cycling...

The first indigenous houses are already being built to welcome the first arrivals!

The ceremonial center will be built at the very top.
