For guest coming in from the United States we recommend flying with Spirit Airlines for the cheapest flights. Spirit only flies to Cartagena, Colombia at this time so you will need to take a five hour bus from Cartagena to Santa Marta Colombia. You can choose to fly to Santa Marta, Colombia with different airlines and we will be happy to arrange airport pickup for you. The Santa Marta International Airport will be opening in the near future allowing cheaper direct flights to Santa Marta from all around the world. If you arrive in Santa Marta late and can not make the journey up the mountain in the same day we recommend staying at "Playa Del Ritmo". They offer an excellent vegetarian menu and they are directly on the beach.
In Santa Marta we can either arrange a personal 4x4 SUV to pick you up from the airport/bus station and bring you directly to the farm (additional fee averaging 150,000 COP) or we you can make the journey yourself. For those who want to travel up the mountain on their own, we recommend the stunning 2.5 hour hike up the mountain. In the city market of Santa Marta at the intersection of Carrera 11 & Calle 11 you will be able to get a collectivo (shared ride) from Santa Marta to Minca (7,000 COP). From Minca you will need to catch a moto taxi (20,000-25,000 COP) to Aloha ke Akua Healing Center which is approximately 40 minutes. All moto taxis know who we are and where we are located. Happy travels and we look forward to meeting you! For further instructions for travel please feel free to contact us on Facebook or by email.
