Getting There & Away
Colectivos and shared taxis to/from Santa Marta arrive at and depart from the center of Minca throughout the day (COP$8000, 30 minutes), and you'll rarely have to wait longer than 20 minutes for them to fill up and depart. A taxi to Santa Marta is around COP$40,000.
In Santa Marta, Minca-bound colectivos and shared taxis leave from outside the market at the corner of Calle 11 and Carrera 12. A faster option for the same price is the moto-taxi to Minca. However, these depart from Yucal, a barrio on the outskirts of town, so you'll need to take a COP$6000 taxi from anywhere in Santa Marta to get there.
