Certificate of Excellence
Mundo Nuevo is an organic farm & hostel in which the primary objective is to achieve and advocate sustainability in terms of food, water, economics and energy consumption. We work to protect the unique territory of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta from further deforestation and to preserve - and where needed recuperate - its natural ecosystems. We aim to provide an alternative form of living for our residents and guests by being a human settlement that provides people with reliable work and clients with tourism services whilst having an overall positive impact on the ecosystem. Our guests are invited to sleep in either private or shared rooms, a wood cabin, or traditional indigenous Wiwa rooms. Your day can be spent hiking the trails through the Sierra Nevada where we will guide you through the farm and its facilities, followed by an introduction to our home gardens and “Awindua,” an indigenous village build on the bordering ridge. During our tours, we will educate you on the fundamentals of permaculture, sustainability principles, and provide information on the Sierra Nevada and its indigenous cultures. Guests are also welcome to take part in the cultivation of our gardens, in addition to enjoying homegrown vegetarian meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Furthermore, Mundo Nuevo facilitates many educational retreats designed to help us understand how we can continue to move toward a more sustainable future. We invite you to visit us and be part of our vision; perhaps lending a hand in achieving our dreams, if you so desire. Our staff here at Mundo Nuevo awaits you, and is eager to share more of our story and philosophy with you.

The lodge is a 40min trek up or a 15 min moto ride. It has great views but then again everywhere in Minca does. What I found really disappointing and the worse in the whole of Colombia for me was the customer service. The staff...More

Takes about 45 minutes to walk up to Mundo from Minca, or 20000 on a mototaxi (this can be nerve wracking when it’s raining!!). Hostel is nice with amazing views and friendly staff. Clean and tidy. We stayed in the two bed dorm which would...More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Mundo Neuvo for three nights this week. Although a tough slog up the hill to get there (and well worth organising a 4x4 or moto taxi if you have big bags), it is a wonderful place. Our room was...More

Mundo Nuevo is a little slice of paradise up in the Minka hills. The view here is amazing, and the entire place is designed to let you take it in (even on the loo!) whilst you are relaxing. What really makes the place is the...More
