Minca is a small village situated in the mountains. Every morning the sun is shining and every afternoon it is rainy. The village has a few good places like hostels, café or bakery. The most cool atractions are around the village. I recommend you to visit Marinka, Pozo azul, Los piňos and Casa Elemento. There is also coffee farm and beer factory.
