Katherine Caicedo

I was born and raised in Colombia. I am passionate about learning from our different cultures and promoting my country. I grew up to see this magical place change and I am eager to share this new and amazing Colombia with the world.

I believe that, through tourism, we can show what our country really has to offer: a great variety of landscapes and the world’s happiest and warmest people. I can help you design a journey that will capture your heart and senses.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Small traditional villages where you can really discover the Colombian culture. Natural Parks where you can admire the great biodiversity of this country. Encounters with ancient local communities. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I love to discover new places and having new experiences. It is amazing how inside a single country you can find such diversity in climates, landscapes, and even cultures. I started working in promotion and tourism because I felt like I need to share all of this with the world."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Reaching the snowy pick at the Cocuy National Park, and being able to admire this majestic landscape was for me once again a proof that Colombia has an amazing variety of experiences and places to show."

The overall experience and final results were good but communication was frustrating. You do everything by internet which is fine for a young generation but for a senior generation this impersonal approach is difficult and when in transit usually without wi-fi availability it becomes challenging. Unfortunately our contact left your company at a critical time although both girls were excellent.

Unfortunately our contact left your company at a critical time although both girls were excellent.

The overall plan was generic but the notification of pickups was and van drivers were last minute. The local transport companies and drivers you contracted were outstanding punctual and polite. In our party, 3 did not speak any Spanish and I fluent in both ended doing all the translating and acting as a guide not a big deal but if you are going to expand tourists from North America you should try to get ones with a little English.

From Pasto to Cali travel company Tierra y Cielo as well as driver Henry Patoja and guide in Medellin Maria Elena Marín were A1. Travel companies Cali Salento and salento Medellin I give a A. English guide in Salento was charming but English very limited. Your hotel choices Le park in Medellin was good and ideally situated and Hacienda Cairo was excellent and highly recommended. As a born Colombian living in Canada I was happy to show my wife and friends Colombia in a positive way and very happy with your arrangements

Over Xmas, I now intend bringing my children and grandchildren for a two-week visit and hope we can work together again.

Pick up info at each point was last minute, all else was well. Nathalie and Katheryn were good.

The Cambio hacienda restaurant staff was mostly not interested in service, the dinners and coffee was substandard and the room was in poor condition.

Katherine was very patient with us in the planning stage and equally attentive throughout the trip.

Cartagena, tayrona, purace national park, Colombia - Dec 21 - Jan 4, 2017

Traveler: Laura G. - Local specialist: Katherine Caicedo

Katherine worked very hard on our behalf, especially given the short time frame in which we were planning. She also was great while we were in country and got sick and had to revise parts of our trip. She was always available to help re-adjust. There were two of the lodging options that were disappointing. Cartagena, Tayrona and Silvia were the highlights of the trip for me.
