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."

My husband and I spent 8 days traveling in Colombia in August. This was our first time using a travel agency or service such as kimkim, and we are so grateful that we did! 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).

We even had a hiccup with food poisoning (be very careful with the tap water!) but our local guides and Andrea worked together to make sure we could recover some activities we had to miss. Shout out to Jesus, Juan David, and Yube - we couldn't have asked for better guides in Minca. Having local guides who could share their personal experiences was one of the best parts of the trip. Hotel wise - Casa San Agustin in Cartagena is beautiful, centrally located, and has some of the best service of any hotel I've stayed at.

Hotel Casa San Agustín
Cartagena de Indias

Casa San Agustin is beautifully kept and the location is ideal, but our favorite part of our stay was the staff. Everyone that we met was friendly and eager to help.

I'm not a huge rum (or alcohol) fan in general, but this experience was worth it because of our host, Jesus. He made the tasting fun and educational!

Yube was an awesome guide - helping us spot all three monkey types and giving us more context on Colombia.

One of the BEST, most incredible trips of my life!!

One of the BEST, most incredible trips of my life!! Huge huge thanks to Andrea, who took such wonderful care of me, and carefully planned everything, taking into account my preferences and feedback, and was always available and in contact to help with anything. It was so much fun to meet up with Wendy as well, one of the other planners. Both Andrea and Wen were incredibly kind, and all of the guides were also phenomenal (Edgar, Johan, Roberto). I had a fantastic time in Medellín (especially Comuna 13), Guatapé, Minca, Tayrona, Barú, and Cartagena. From hiking and forests and waterfalls, to swimming in the Caribbean, to relaxing and eating wonderful food in amazing hotels, to meeting and laughing with lovely people, everything about the experience was amazing. I’m a vegetarian (which can be very difficult in South America), but they took very good care of me. I’m incredibly grateful to the KimKim team and all their partners, and hope that I have a chance to come back to Colombia. I could go on forever about how great it was. Gracias por todo :)
