Andrea Morita

Let enchanting Colombia steal your heart and touch your soul—we’ll plan it all for you on a custom itinerary.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I'm a specialist in Nature, Eco-lodges, Boutique hotels, Glamping, Birding, Cultural and Luxury experiences in Colombia."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Hola! I’m Andrea, and I got involved in travel to share my beloved home country with curious travelers.

I grew up in a town in Bogotá surrounded by mountains. My nickname growing up was “Colombianita”—or little Colombian girl—because I’ve always been so passionate about the bounty of beauty in my country.

I have spent a few years crisscrossing Colombia, checking off my bucket list. My goal is to create vibrant experiences that immerse you in Colombia’s enchantment—like learning to make traditional dishes with a local chef, touring ancient villages with an archeologist, or walking in the footsteps of novelist and Nobel winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I’ve always known how special Colombia is—now the world is waking up to its magic. Allow me to share that magic with you, for an unforgettable holiday experience all seen through a local’s eyes."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One of my favorite places in the world is Flores in Indonesia. It is a little town where everybody gets excited about having a conversation with you; everybody takes care of you and helps you with every detail. The love and kindness that you breathe are real, and you can feel it. Plus, I cannot forget the picture of the fantastic views and magical landscapes. Every time I think back on my time in Flores, it seems like a dream."

From the very beginning, our specialist Andrea developed an exciting itinerary that fulfilled our travel wishes; when I asked if she could lower the overall cost, she was able to make adjustments without sacrificing too much of the fun and comfort.

All of our local guides in each city (Andrea in Bogotá, Juan and Ivan in Pereira, and Aura in Cartagena) were all spectacular! It was so special to have guides who were both passionate about their regions and excited to share it with others through tourism. We learned so much from our conversations with each guide (all of whom spoke exceptional English)!

Some other general comments include that most of the trip was already paid for once we arrived in Colombia, that we really didn't have to worry about having cash on us - from activities to transportation! Additionally, our specialist Andrea was extremely responsive through WhatsApp and answered any questions we had very promptly and thoroughly.

Colombia is a beautiful country, the people that we encountered were so warm and friendly, and the food is just delicious! 12/10.

Casa San Carlos Lodge
Pereira

Casa San Carlos is absolutely stunning and we are so happy we were able to stay here during our visit; we even had a free day that we were able to spend by the pool. I did, however, want to share some feedback surrounding the food and hospitality: things were a bit disorganized. Staff seemed eager to please but, as culminating example, when we were checking out and settling the bills for meals (which we had charged to the room each evening) all but one or two items were incorrect. The front desk worked with us to go through and correctly itemize, but it felt very messy and I ultimately feel like we payed less than we ought to (could have easily been the opposite problem, as well).

From upgrading us to a suite in a high end hotel, to a surprise beach picnic lunch with wine, to having chocolate-covered strawberries and roses in our room, we were delighted :)

Colombia as a country for sightseeing is underrated. With such breath-taking landscapes, beautiful weather, wonderful people, we loved Colombia for all that it had to offer,
Kim Kim through its association with local travel agencies in Colombia, not only made us feel safe and gave a true local experience but also help the community by giving them job opportunities.

All our travel guides and drivers were fantastic. Bogota was fun with Rosita, we had a 4 hr city tour but got a great glimpse of what the city had to offer. Medellin with Maria was excellent . Santa Marta with Yubelis was exceptional. We stayed the longest in Santa Marta and was probably our favorite city amongst all that we visited. Marlon and Tavo in Cartagena were wonderful as well.

Couple of recommendations from our experience:
We wish KimKim does better by having fluent English speaking guides, some guides/drivers were not proficient and barely beginners in English speaking and that made conversations and experience very difficult. While we appreciated their efforts, but communication was almost impossible.

We traveled in times of Covid. Although arrangement of testing and receipt of test were seamless, we wish KimKim had informed us of the costs upfront. We had assumed it was covered in the overall quote they mentioned and we paid. This came as a surprise and was the need of the hour that we didnt account for. We managed but budgeting can be tricky for many.

Overall we enjoyed the experience working with KimKim and loved Colombia! I would highly recommend friends and family to use KimKim and work with Andrea. She was with us every step of the way ensuring we had a great time. I was lucky to have met her in person in Colombia! She even gifted us a keepsake when we met.

Dear Aishwarya,
Thank you so much for the time you took writing such lovely feedback. Everything you wrote means the world to us.
It was an honor for us to have both of you in our country. I was so happy we were able to meet.
I am so sorry about the Covid test. Every country has a different regulation; some require Antigen, PCR, or some do not; prices can vary. The information that the test was not included was mentioned in the trip plan.
Everybody says hi to both of you! We all wish you all the best. Colombia waits for both of you always with open arms,
With love,
Andrea

Our 14 day trip to Colombia was great and we owe it all to our wonderful local specialist, Andrea.
Not only did she patiently help the 3 of us plan and customize of trip (we must have changed our plans 10 times!), she was with us (virtually) every step of the way while we visited 4 locations in this stunning country. We traveled from Bogota (loved the Gold Museum!) to the coffee region (highlight: Cocora Valley hike in the Andes to see Wax Palms) to Medellin (highlight: visiting Communalist 13 at night) and last to Cartagena (highlight: Street Foodie Tour). Accompanied by lovely guides in each location who shared stories of their community with us. Lodging in each location was top notch too.
While we had a few disappointments, Andrea was quick to make sure we could do something to make up for it later on. I was a bit nervous booking such a big and expensive trip on an online platform, I would now not hesitate to use Kimkim to help us plan our next adventure.

Hotel Reviews
Bio Habitat Hotel
Quindío, Armenia

This was such a unique and relaxing place to relax. Each guest "nest" is a glass box perched in the trees. Quite amazing! The food was also quite nice here. I loved the breakfasts. The view at sunset from the pool deck (or in the hot pool) is spectacular!

Tips for future travelers

If you are mobility challenged, be sure to ask for a room close to the top near the reception building! The route to our room was steep and at this altitude, we needed to rest walking up! Oh, and wear your bug repellent that they provide!!!

This was a nice hotel but a bit too trendy. For my taste. My least favorite on the trip. The rooms were quite small and the corridors so dark, it was spooky! Nice bar and great breakfast . Loud music playing somewhere at night.

My wife and I have traveled for business and pleasure throughout the world over many years and Andrea is exceptional in the service that she provides. She was efficient, knowledgeable, responsive and very thoughtful.

We really enjoyed our Columbia trip, the people are very friendly, the food is great and the beauty and variety of scenery is incredible. Our 20 day trip just scratched the surface. We will definitely be back and will use Andrea and KimKim to help us plan another great trip.

Andrea helped us put together a fabulous trip! The big component that we were concerned about was transportation, and all of our transfers were on time and completely seamless. Andrea responded in a timely manner and was very flexible in making adjustments to our trip beforehand, and while we were in Cartagena. I’m so glad that she recommended Punta Faro because it was exactly what we were looking for and was a tropical paradise. We will definitely use kimkim again to help plan the logistics and get recommendations for future trips!

We just had a great trip to Colombia. We were there for 13 days. It was our first time with Kimkim. Usually we planned our trip completety on our own but this time, we tried Kimkim because we decided to go on a trip not a long time before leaving and we were very busy to do all the research we usually do. The planning of the trip went really well. Andrea listen to our interests and respected our limited budget. She answered quickly to all our questions and suggested some great improvements. The trip went really well except for some minor thing. First, one of the driver didn't show up at the right time in Medellin (and we think he might have been to the wrong airport too because there is 2 airport in Medellin). We were not able to reach someone at Kimkim for several hours but once we did, they were able to help us really fast and solve all the problems. They refund us back for the expenses we had to make because of this problem. We had a city tour already booked for the morning but we were still able to do it anyway in the afternoon. Also, at the end of our trip, we found out that there was a day missing in the planning. We were taking the plane back on the 19th August at night but the planning said we were leaving on the 18th despite having said the right date at the beginning! But Andrea solved the problem really fast: she booked us another night for free in Bogota. All in all, we liked the trip and we were really glad to have all the transportation included in the package, we always had great hotel in central neighborhoods. We think that a few improvements could prevent future problems: provided all vouchers (hotel and activities), give exact address of the hotel in the plan, write what compagny is in charge of the transport with a phone number. Also, maybe give more than one contact we can reach in case of a problem. We understand that one person can not be accessible 24/7, it is normal, so accordingly, it would be great to have more than one contact in case of a problem needed to be solved quickly. Also, we had a limited budget and had asked for cheap hotels or hostals. In the end, we had really great upscale hotel like the Hilton. It was great, but we had asked for cheap hotels. Maybe our budget finally was enought for good hotel but if it was the case, we would have like better the make the decision for ourselves if we would have prefer to have the overall cost lower than our budget or if we wanted nicer hotels instead. I'm being critical but I would still recommand Kimkim to my friend and family. They were many waiting for my experience before booking with Kimkim and I will encourage them to do so mostly if they want to spare time while planning a trip or if they want to do a more elaborate trip with a lot of logistic with transportation.
Thank you for this great experience in Colombia.
