Born and raised in Bogotá, I have had many opportunities to travel around my country to get to know the diversity of cultures, nature, landscapes, gastronomy and amazing activities that connect tourists with the territory. I will be pleased to share with you the most authentic experiences and to capture them into a program that would make your trip to Colombia unforgettable!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I love to share with tourist new places that shows heritage and ecosystems in Colombia. I specialize in organizing trips to colonial charming towns of Colombia as Villa de Leyva and Barichara. I am also keen on nature activities as walks, rafting and trekking to discover the Coffee Region, the Tayrona Park and archeological places as San Agustín. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"I have been passionnate about travelling since I was little. I loved to visit the Coffee Region and the Caribbean in Colombia. I went to study English and French abroad and that made me realize that I wanted people from around the world to know more about my country. So I came back to study tourism management, in order to have the grounding and the experience to advise and encourage others to discover the magic realism that Colombia has to offer!"
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"A truly life-changing trip was my visit to the Pacific Ocean of Colombia. There I met the warmest people who live so happy with so little. I also watched the Humpback whales swimming with their newborns, surrounded by Flora and Fauna that only survive in this part of the world. I got to visit an indigenous community that amazed me with their values, respect of their nature, and organization. Definitely, I would love to share this unique experience with you!"

One week in colombia: 5 great itineraries, Colombia - Apr 11 - Apr 18, 2019
Best vacation ever! Many thanks to Natalia for planning us a wonderful tour of Colombia. We went to Medellin, Bogota, and the Zona Cafetera over one week. Everything was so smooth and seamless. All of our guides and drivers were on time (or early) to pick us up and were absolutely fabulous. We loved all of the hotels that Natalia selected for us, especially Patio del Mundo in Medellin. I can't recommend this trip, and Natalia, highly enough. Thank you!!!
Bogotá, coffee triangle & caribbean coast - 7 days , Colombia - Mar 23 - Mar 30, 2019
We had a great trip to Colombia. Natalia was a very good coordinator. She was very attentive to our requests for changes to the itinerary, very responsive to requests we had before and during our trip, and very accessible when we needed her to both answer questions and to arrange transportation when our itinerary changed abruptly due to bad weather on Islas Rosario.
Our first guide in Bogota, Juan was also very good. He connected well with everyone in the family. We especially loved the... read more

Natalia, and Kimkim, worked together with our group point person to facilitate our visiting many wonderful places in Colombia. We stayed in very comfortable hotels, were the staff made us feel at home.
Our guides added great interest to our visits to so many wonderful sites. In addition, the guides were really fun people to spend time with.
Everything went flawlessly, all of our check ins, check outs, getting picked up, getting dropped off, making connections.
For me this was a wonderful introduction to South America.

Colombia -- travel and logistics, Colombia - Feb 18 - Feb 24, 2019
Natalia was superb. I initially indicated there would be about 10 people traveling and ultimately there were 17. She did an excellent job of structuring an itinerary (consisting of Santa Marta- Zipaquira- Villa de Leyva-Bogota-Medellin-Guatape-El Penol- Santa Elena) to accommodate my requests. She graciously and quickly accommodated every change as needed. She did a terrific job of planning the trip, choosing the hotels, securing the airline tickets, acquiring all the subcontractors,... read more

Natalia at kimkim helped us with our 8 day Columbia itinerary,
that consisted of 3 days at Tayrona National Park, 2 days at Cartegena, and 3 days at Salento.
All hotels, activities, and ground transportation was arranged by Natalia.
Everything went perfect. Drivers were always on time and helpful. The hotels, while not very expensive, were perfect. (Boutique hotels that were perfect value for money).
We were especially impressed with the guides for our Cocora valley hike (full loop at 7 hours) and Tayrona hike (9 hours). Overall, we were very happy with the value we received.
Trip to colombia, Colombia - Dec 26 - Jan 6, 2019
Overall a great experience, we really enjoyed Colombia. We were in Bogotá, Medellin and Cartagena and they all were worth the visit. We had very good guides in Bogotá and I think we should have stayed longer. Our guide in Medellin (day trip to Guatapé) was really good too, he really was engaging. If I were to do it again I would arrange more guided trips with kimkim in Medellin. The last guide we had was in Cartagena and a tour of the city, our guide here was not the best guide, while... read more
