Just came back from our walking tour and immediately started writing this review because it was so amazing. I can’t imagine coming to Santa Marta and not going to Minca. It was the best decision we have made. The tour was arranged well and very accommodating by our guide Andres. He even took us to see Cocao plantation and process (@nominal cost) to make the cocoa powder. Overall great walking tour.
