Everybody knows Minca, but few people have heard of Paso del Mango, another incredible place in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta on the Caribbean coast.
Paso del Mango is a great option if you want to spend some time in the Sierra Nevada and enjoy its surroundings without being surrounded by tourists.
It is a destination that is not very easy to get to. You’ll have to earn it. For more ease and convenience, you should plan private transportation.
Once in Paso del Mango, the hostels offer a whole range of activities to keep you busy during the day. Choose between waterfall hunting, hiking, coffee, and cocoa tours, but don’t forget to rest!
Note that there are no restaurants or grocery stores. Only hotels/hotels offer meals.
