What you'll do

Many come to visit Minca and sometimes miss the magic that isn't written in the travel guides. I will ensure to be by your side to help you discover the true magic Minca has to offer.

On this adventure, we will meet at one of the local coffee shops and grab a tasty cup of morning glory. We will then meet our moto taxis and head up to one of the oldest coffee and cacao farms in the area, with spectacular views. If you choose, you can partake in their tour and learn what it takes to get your fresh cup of joe or chocolate bar! After we finish checking out this beautiful farm, we can either hike or moto back down to the heart of Minca. On the way back we will make some stops to check out some other exciting local farms, local river spots and even jump in for a refreshing swim.

Besides having an amazing experience exploring the magic of Minca with me you will also be supporting Museo Minca, a wonderful community project aimed to help gather, preserve and shared the history and traditions of the local community of Minca. 10% of this experience’s profits will be donated directly to the museum to support its efforts.

Community organizer, activist and local fixer. Born in Cali, Colombia raised in California. Currently living in this dreamy caribbean coast of Colombia. As an only child, I’ve learned to adapt to diverse environments; a reason why I genuinely love bringing people together, build community and create lifetime memories. My friends can tell you I'm the life & soul of any gathering or community that I plug into, no matter where I go in the world.

Most of my family and I migrated out of Colombia in the 90s due to the violence at the time. I've been traveling to Colombia since 2012 with the intention to reconnect with my motherland. I fell in love with Santa Marta from my very first landing; so I chose to permanently relocate from dreamy Santa Cruz, CA in 2018 and why I am so excited to share it’s magic with YOU!

Angelica is an amazing host, she is very friendly and outgoing which shows in the passion she has for the region. She will tell you some great stories about the history and the current projects of minca which she plays a big role in. Everywhere where we would it seemed like all the locals knew her, you can see she is very loved in the community. At the end of the tour she also brings you to the museum of minca that will enhance her stories. Angelica is bilingual so that really helps with the language barrier. Overall it was an amazing day and she definitely made me fall in love with the place. I would 100% recommend Angelica

Angelica agreed to meet us in Minca even though it was her only day off. She met us in an amazing little cafe and we got to know each other over breakfast, then headed on our hike through the forest in Minca. We met an awesome community that lives there, working on art and different projects. Went on a further hike to a gorgeous waterfall that we had completely to ourselves to explore and swim. The hikes were in little parts, lasting about 25 to 35 minutes. The waterfall was very worth the hike. Angelica is a magical human and hearing her story and why she is in Minca is amazing. Also got to try fresh cocoa fruit straight from the tree.

Angelica was awesome! I felt like this experience exemplifies what Airbnb experiences is trying to do - it was unique, personal, and fun. Angelica knows the area and the people of Minca incredibly well. She’s easy going and flexible, able to adjust as we go. Without a doubt, I wouldn’t have been able to see Minca without Angelica’s help and guidance. A big part of Minca’s magic is exploring the area and meeting the community; this experience captures that perfectly.

Angelica is an awesome host! I had the chance to plan the day with her and adapt it to my wishes. On the way we met 3 other travellers and welcomed them in the group and had an incredible day together. Minca is indeed magical! Angelica made over hours and stayed with us until after the sunset!! It was a super awesome experience!

An amazing experience in Minca that couldn’t have occurred without someone as special as Angelica. I booked this experience while residing in Santa Marta, we started the adventure by having breakfast in the lively village area of Minca which had lots of restaurants & breakfast options to choose from. Angelica resides in the area so she offered her recommendations. I had a delicious Açaí bowl to power up the morning. As we shifted gears to start the experience I chose the much speedier & adventurous option, so we hopped on the back of motorcycles with very experienced riders and journeyed through the dirt roads up to the heart of Minca; what an insane an unforgettable ride through the mountains, make sure to hold on tight while trying to capture the experience either on camera or just simply soaking it all up. Angelica is extremely knowledgeable about Minca and knows all the key locations from waterfalls, hostels and communities surrounding the area. Everyone seems to know Angelica (such an amazing aura), which makes customizing your experience a breeze to do on the fly for her. I skipped the coffee farm tours (I grew up on a coffee farm) in exchange for a hike to other surroundings attractions. I lost count of the amount of times that my jaw dropped at each stopping point. “Amazing” was the overused word of the day! Our last stop was the museum of Minca, which summarized the experience by imparting you with a deeper knowledge of Minca with a complete historical timeline; please yourself a favor and do not miss this part. I almost did, given how tired I was, but you can sit through the experience and catch your breath. Allow Angelica to open up your heart to adventure and show you what Minca has to offer, you will leave with a burning desire to return to immerse yourself in the charm of Minca and some of the surrounding communities in the mountain that she will reveal to you. I loved Minca! As a bonus Angelica was free and was heading down to Santa Marta for the day, and offered to show me a few key locations this turned into another full blown experience and me adding an extra day to my stay. I really hope that she creates a separate experience around Santa Marta. I didn’t expect much from Minca or Santa Marta and I left with some of the best travel experiences of my life. Thanks to this wonderful human, Angelica, that I can now call a friend, you certainly will too at the end of your experience!
