Fabían Levasseur

I have been traveling to many places until I discovered Colombia and fell in love with this country and its variety of landscape. Each one is more beautiful one after the other. Since then, I decided to live here, sharing my passion for travel with others and helping them enjoy and discover this fabulous country and all the treasures it has to offer.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I love nature, whether it is for a peaceful walk, observing fauna and flora, or feeling the adrenaline of an extreme adventure, there are so many possibilities to enjoy the beauty of nature.

I am also a fan of the history of civilization because you always have an opportunity to discover the history and understand better the culture of the country you are visiting. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I did not travel that much when I was a kid. I spent my summers in my home village near the beach. My first trip abroad was with school when I was fourteen, we were writing letters to English penfriends, and we did a cultural exchange spending one week in each other's family. It gave me a lot of interest in foreign languages and discovering new countries. Then I started to study international tourism. It gave me the chance to travel and work in different countries, in a multicultural environment, and live my passion. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will always remember how great I felt walking the streets of Cartagena for the first time, this city really has something in its air that gives you a smile 24/7.

The food and drinks are delicious, people very generous and always give their best so you feel great. I spent some days in Isla Rosario, lazing at the beach, never felt so relaxed, this place is amazing. I could admire one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life. "

A slice of Providencia Island
San Andrés & Providencia - 6 Days

These twin islands off the coast of Nicaragua actually belong to Colombia, making it a multi-cultural beach trip like no other. Start in San Andrés, the more developed of the two isles, where you'll have time to experience Raizal culture before heading to Providencia for three days of hiking, diving, and slow island life. Finish back in San Andrés for one more Caribbean sunset and a reggae show.

The ocean and rocks from Tayrona National Park
Cartagena, Carnival & the Caribbean Coast - 10 Days

This fun itinerary hits the highlights along Colombia’s northern coast, balancing colonial history, beaches, hiking, and relaxation. Wander Cartagena's pretty Old Town and take a speedboat to the Rosario Islands. Drive to Barranquilla, where a raging carnival celebration is held each year. You'll also spend two active days exploring Tayrona National Park and visit a coffee farm in the rolling hills of Minca.

Perfect for first-timers, this classic Colombia itinerary starts in cosmopolitan Bogotá, ending in charming Cartagena.

Colonial Cartagena and Island Adventure - 4 Days
Colonial Cartagena and Island Adventure - 4 Days

Like pairing a gourmet meal with a fine wine, the best way to complement a trip to the Spanish-colonial fortress city of Cartagena is to include an excursion to nearby Caribbean islands.

This 12-day adventure will take you through the best of Colombia. You'll travel from Bogotá to the Amazon, the rolling hills of the Zona Cafetera (coffee region), the beaches of Tayrona National Park, and the colonial fortress city of Cartagena. The most exciting part of your trip? A visit to the little-known region of Guaviare, with its mixture of jungle, indigenous communities, red rivers, and ancient rock art that dates back 20,000 years.

Would highly recommend you put Colombia on your trip list. · Colombia - Feb 18 - Mar 10, 2020

We were soooo impressed with the trip. Everything went smoothly. All guides and drivers were early and eagerly awaiting us. ALL Colombians were so friendly to us.
We felt safe and well taken care of the whole trip. We had a pretty aggressive agenda but enjoyed discovering beautiful Columbia visiting many different regions. The trip to Chingaza was a great last minute addition and our guide Juanita was fabulous. We LOVED Medellin region and especially the commune 13 visit- our guide... read more

We were soooo impressed with the trip. Everything went smoothly. All guides and drivers were early and eagerly awaiting us. ALL Colombians were so friendly to us.
We felt safe and well taken care of the whole trip. We had a pretty aggressive agenda but enjoyed discovering beautiful Columbia visiting many different regions. The trip to Chingaza was a great last minute addition and our guide Juanita was fabulous. We LOVED Medellin region and especially the commune 13 visit- our guide Marcel was full of information, enthusiasm, and energy.
Our coffee tour was awesome - suggest including lunch (as some groups had - we had coffee and a snack). Cocora was great but our guide Juan was very average - didn't really want to take us on the full loop were had arranged for???? turns out the wilder part of the loop that he didn't want to take us on initially was the best part of the hike.
The 4 day lost city trek was hot, humid, steep and challenging but sooooo worth it - we had great guides and were surprised at the comfort (and bed-bug proofing) and food at the facilities along the trek. The fresh fruit along the trek was soooooo awesome.
Tayrona was beautiful - we skipped the lines into the park as our guide knew people which was awesome - apparently the park had just re-opened after being shut down for a month and people were waiting hours and were even being turned away.
We spent 6 hours in San Andreas waiting for our flight home and it would not have suited us - we did a tour by cab and then walked the malecon / beach . Enjoyed Providencia much more - 4 nights was perfect there. We dove only one day as the reefs are not in great shape. We rented a side by side vehicle to tour the island one day which was great -beautiful beaches. I would highly recommend to others as an activity going to the Lighthouse theatre that shows the black crab migration and culture of the island to everyone- also has an awesome view of the sunset with drinks and decent food. The hike to the peak and meditation rock was so awesome. Deep blue accommodations were awesome but the restaurant was just slightly above average. The food and service was much better at Caribbean Place Donde Martin.

Cartagena was interesting but too hot and busy for our liking - that's just us. We know people who loved staying there because it was sunny, hot, busy, with lots of places to shop and eat - we much preferred Bogota and especially Medellin as far as cities go. The market and cooking class were super interesting.

Overall we were very pleased with our visit - the itinerary suited us and really allowed us to experience as much of Colombia as possible in 3 weeks. We were so impressed with how smoothly everything went and how friendly and helpful Colombians are. This was also a reasonably priced holiday as far as eating and drinking once you are in Colombia.
We will definitely be recommending Colombia to our friends.

Working with KimKim made my boyfriend and i’s trip that much better! Fabian was awesome, he gave every option I asked for. From seeing multiple cities and including day trips, drivers and hotels at every stop, Fabian wasn’t pushy on the itinerary and was so helpful with all my questions. He set all my nerves as ease going into the trip and allowed for my boyfriend to just enjoy Colombia and not worry about the itinerary.

Throughout the trip, Chio who replaced Fabian (as Fabian sought out a new position) was excellent. He answered all my questions I had so quickly that I never had to worry at all !

I will definite work with kimkim again in booking my future travels. All the drivers and people who were employed by kimkim to help us we’re all fabualous and so kind. Can’t wait for our next trip!
