“Very nice cacao and coffee tour”
Reviewed 11 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We had a great visit, learned the process of cacao and coffee from beginning to end. Tours are done both in English or Spanish.
The couple running the farm are very nice and genuine.
The farm is located high above the sierra and overlooks the city of Minca and Santa Marta.
Nice place to spend a few hours learning and drinking the drink of the gods “cacao” while gazing at birds and meeting new people. It’s a beautiful hike up or down from Minca.

“Chocolate and Coffee Tour!”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Best Tour in Minca! Or so they say, and, turns out, they're right! Skip the waterfalls and head up hill to visit La Candelaria family run (almost) organic chocolate and coffee (and avocado) farm! The owners offer guided tours of the grounds that include bean to cup explanations for both coffee and chocolate. Help harvest your own coffee or chocolate beans, then watch as the knowledgeable farmers dry, roast, mill and create a magical experience in front of your eyes! A perfect way to spend a morning on the farm - and, don't forget to ask how to go from here directly down hill (through a jungle walk!) to Pozo Azul, well worth the adventurous route!

“Lovely family”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We absolutely loved the place. Very basic accomodation but clean and cheap. We booked one day in advance from our hostel in Santa Marta and paid around 10$ each, so less than online...
One of the highlights of our 4 weeks in Colombia!!

“BEST EXPERIENCE AND PEACEFULL PLACE”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at this homestay and we had an experience that we won´t forget. The family were very friendly and they organized a coffee tour and cacao tour which we really learned about it and enjoy the best coffee ever and the best hot chocolate. Staying at their place was wonderfull something we look for it, great views, good coffee in the morning, very quite. This place is not for everyone since it is about 30 minuts walking from Minca, but if you really look for a quitness place, surround but coffee and caco plantations this is the right place. We enjoyed the landscape and we did not mind to walk from Minca to our homestay because views are great and we love walking, it was definitly worth to stayed at their homestay. Also they adopted a beautiful Tucan called TUKY and it is in good hands since they care about the bird and he is free and come back everyday to say hello to all guests.

“wonderful experience!”

We loved staying at La Candelaria with Anna and Eugenio. They were warm and welcoming and Anna is a great cook and fed us well! It is a beautiful and rustic spot up on the mountain with tons of birds, abundant fruit for fresh juices, amazing sunsets, the twinkling lights of Santa Marta below and excellent coffee! Staying there was a highlight of our time in Colombia.
