The road leading to Minca has been recently rebuilt (2015) and is in a good condition. Local Santa Marta taxi drivers are willing to take you up to Minca for about $40,000-$50,000 COP (as of March 2019). There are also colectivos (shared taxis) that leave from the marketplace in Santa Marta. â€œLa Estacion de Mincaâ€ is the old station for the colectivos. The new one is located in Calle 12, carrera 9, the company is called 'Cootrasminca'. The journey will cost you 8,000 COP (as of July 2019) and the car leaves when it is full. It normally takes 15-20 min for the car to fill up so don't be in too much of a hurry. The journey to Minca will take around 30 minutes. However, on weekends and public holidays, it might take longer.
