It’s a long, bumpy 4x4 trip to the site. The tour includes a walk around the coffee processing plant. Noisy large machines dating back over 100 years drown out the voice of the guide. If you love watching working antiques, you’ll love it. You can...More

The road up to the coffee plantation is definitely challenging, particularly in wet season, a lot of small landslides and parts where the road had been washed out. The host was pleasant and we learned about the process. Recommend the home-baked cake from their shop...More

Picked up at Santa Marta Airport and enjoyed a 2.5 hour drive to El Dorado. Everyone was so nice and considerate. Language is not a problem. Many speak excellent English!

Do yourself a favor and skip it. If you have time while in Santa Marta and want to take a day trip to experience some nature, I'd much sooner recommend Tayrona National Park. The few hours I spent in the Sierra Nevada mountains were underwhelming,...More

The Sierra Nevada mountains around Minca offer some very decent hiking trails and some sights, such as coffee plantations and beautiful views. Trails can be pretty steep and the heat can be oppressive, so bring plenty of water.
