Everyone knows about Minca, but only a few have heard of Paso del Mango, the little sister hidden in the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta. 

Paso del Mango is a perfect pick if you wish to explore La Sierra without being surrounded by tourists. Be aware that it won’t be easy to get there. You have to deserve it – or pay for private transport.

  • Bus from Santa Marta and stop in Bonda. Then take a moto-taxi for 15 min | Public transportation
  • Walk 6 h from Minca | Hike
  • Private transport from Santa Marta

Once in Paso del Mango, the hostel offers a bunch of activities to busy your day. Choose between chasing waterfalls, hikes, coffee, and cacao tours, but don’t forget to rest at the swimming pool!
