I love Colombia. I love the planet. I love what I do.

I've traveled Colombia in search of authentic experiences which meet global standards for quality service, ecological stewardship, and social responsibility.

I collaborate with local partners and conservation organizations to preserve Colombia's vast biodiversity, rich cultural heritage, and local economies.

Let me create the perfect travel experience for you, with the highest level of detail and service from start to finish.

How did you get involved in travel?

"My wife and I decided after our wedding that we wanted to change our lifestyle and try something new.

We knew we wanted to live out in the country and be as auto-sustainable as possible.

We also wanted to have great weather year round.

We had the opportunity to travel to Colombia for 3 months and we saw a great opportunity to offer Ecotourism services to foreigners. This was back in 2010.

9 months later, we sold everything in Portland, Oregon and moved to the Coffee Region and have loved every minute of it."

10 days in colombia: 5 suggested itineraries, Colombia - Mar 12 - Mar 14, 2018

Traveler: Amanda P. - Local specialist: Daniel Buitrón Jaramillo

I think I started off planning my trip to Colombia very hopefully and with a clear vision of what I wanted. Daniel was unresponsive after I clearly laid out an itinerary (that was more or less the same as one of the suggested itineraries) . It wasn't until I sent several reminders that I got an answer. I planned 90% of the trip on my own, after not hearing from Daniel.

I think I started off planning my trip to Colombia very hopefully and with a clear vision of what I wanted. Daniel was unresponsive after I clearly laid out an itinerary (that was more or less the same as one of the suggested itineraries) . It wasn't until I sent several reminders that I got an answer. I planned 90% of the trip on my own, after not hearing from Daniel. If he was just recommending places I could stay that would have been fine but I was under the impression that he would book the whole trip. When I was just having him book transports, the quote was for twice the amount that I had booked the entire rest of my trip (hotels/activities included). When I asked what the hold up had been, he said due to limited availability with the paragliding. Paragliding was an activity I booked in 20 minutes on my own over Facebook messenger for the exact same date I had requested with Daniel.

I can say that the two transports I booked thru Daniel were great. The service was great to and from door-to-door. On the day or two before my trip, I felt assured in what I was booking thru kimkim, but that was long after the frustration of not hearing in the months leading up to the trip. I wish instead of getting emails saying he would respond with 24 hrs he would have actually given me a realistic timeline of when he could have set up the itinerary for the trip. It left me alone to book the majority of the trip.
