From Santa Marta

Coming by cab

From the bus terminal, downtown. Price from 70,000 to 80,000 cop. Taxis can only take you as far as Minca, as the road up to Mundo Nuevo is only accessible by 4×4, motorcycle or on foot.

Come in colectivos

Colectivos depart from the central market every 30min or so, at a cost of 9,000 cop, an economical and environmentally-friendly way of getting around. From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The colectivos will drop you off in the center of Minca. From there, you can take a 20,000 cop motorcycle cab, a 4×4 or walk up the hill.

From Tayrona, Palomino or Guajira Park

If you're coming from Parc Tayrona, Bohemia Beach, Palomino or La Guajira, you don't have to return to the center of Santa Marta. You can ask to be dropped off at the Mamatoco gas station on the outskirts of Santa Marta. From there, take a cab, from 50,000 to 60,000 cop, or a motorcycle cab up to Minca, from 20,000 to 30,000 cop. Don't hire a motorcycle outside Motomink in Minca, as it doesn't know the access road.

From Minca

Walking up

When you reach Minca, turn left at the police station and continue following the road for 3.2 km. It is a climb of about 60 minutes. The road is steep but pretty, passing through vegetation, small waterfalls and our vegetable garden halfway up. We encourage you to travel this way because it is ecological and beautiful.

walk up to Mundo Nuevo

By motorcycle cab

You can take a moto-taxi at the same place where you are dropped off by the colectivo. Moto Mink is the only organization with proper papers. It is an easy way to reach us in about 12 min. 20.000 cop. Make sure you are given a helmet and wear long pants.

With his 4×4 : Be careful !

To come with your own vehicle, it is imperative to have a high 4×4 with 4 wheel drive, and a solid experience in Off Road driving. It is impossible to climb with Duster type vehicles that do not have enough traction for this type of road. Try to come in the middle of the day, before 4pm. Avoid coming at night for the first time. During the rainy season (September to November), the road can become very muddy and difficult.
