The Mina Mountains were my favorite part of my entire 2 week trip through Colombia, and the ecohabs made it even better! Because we went in low season, we got the best Ecohab available which provided a non-obstructed view of the mountains, the ocean, and Santa Marta. It's a bit of a trek uphill to the ecohabs, so wear good... More

I reached at the location after dark hours but reception office was still open to check me in and make dinner for me. That was nice of them. They arranged me a guide to drive me up the mountain (abt 20km) on a motor bike to visit the upper mountain (el Dorado). Guide was very patience and stopped at different... More

The staff were all very attentive and friendly, and all of the meals we ate here were delicious and true to the region thanks to the amazing chef. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the view was beautiful. We would definitely recommend this place.

The house is built with local materials and local labor. This makes one feel an intimate and precious connection between human beings and their environment. We had the quiet thrill of watching some amazing birds land on trees outside our bamboo/ plaster balcony. Birds so colorful and unusual that my husband bought a bird book in Español to get more...

This is a hiking, walking type of place. Up a windy mountain road, the rooms nestle amongst treetops. This is a birdwatchers paradise. The hummingbirds frequent the cafe - and from there, grab a pair of binoculars and the guidebook. I got to look at a Tucan for a good half an hour after the rain. That alone was worth... More

After reading through various accommodation reviews in the region, the most recent feedback for Ecohabs was pretty positive. So i decided to try it out for myself. No regrets!!! I loved everything about the place. The huts are cute, the setting is amazing and the staff are so welcoming, helpful and friendly. I recommend to anybody wanting a few days... More

Went with my wife last year and this is by far the best hotel in Minca. The views were stunning, great service and plenty of things to do. I recommend you do the hikes to the waterfalls and Pozo Azul. Will go back.

If you are looking for something very special and memorable, spend a couple of nights at the Minca Ecohabs, you won´t regret it! Ensconced in the mountains that rise from Colombia´s Caribbean ocean, forming the snow-capped Sierra Nevada peak (the highest peak bordering an ocean in the world) the hotel offers its visitors comfortable, clean and first class "cabañas" that...
