Hola! My name is Wendy Romero. I was born on a beautiful island called San Andrés. The island is in the shape of a seahorse (Go see for yourself!) I am passionate about travel, and I have been fortunate to visit most places in Colombia.
In Colombia, you have the Amazon rainforest, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, deserts in the North, and the Plains in the East. So many environments, all in one place!
As a devoted Travel Advisor, I do my best to provide my travelers with memorable experiences in my country.
Colombia is recognized for having warm people, delicious food, amazing destinations, and unique adventures.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I am a specialist in the Colombian Caribbean coast. I orchestrate walking tours, cultural and historical visits, sea adventures, and other incredible experiences. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"I have been involved in travel and tourism my whole life. My parents studied and worked in this field. I grew up traveling, meeting new people, seeing new places, and tasting new foods. Because of these experiences, I chose this career and am so happy that I did. My Bachelor’s Degree is in Tourism as well!!!"
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"There is a small town close to Santa Marta called Minca. It is well known as the ecological capital due to its biodiversity, weather, and altitude.
This place has been a unique experience because you can find peace and enjoy nature. For coffee lovers, you will find a farm where coffee is processed and exported to other countries because of its high quality.
Minca is only 45 minutes from the city and has a spectacular view of Santa Marta with breathtaking sunsets. Also, you will find endemic species for bird-watching lovers up in the mountains. "

In love with Colombia

As a woman traveling alone to a remote part of Colombia I decided to use an agency. I have to tell you KimKim was excellent! Wendy made me feel more than confident and assured me if I needed anything she was just a text away….and she was. Any questions no matter now big or small were welcomed. When plans were delayed due to weather while I was in a remote part of the country she was attentive and made sure I was comfortable as could be during the situation. She absolutely treated me like... read more

Our Colombia trip was amazing! Wendy and her team went above and beyond to provide unique experiences for us from mountain biking to a natural mud volcano in Cartagena to running with locals in Bogota on Sundays when they close major streets. We visited locals houses within each city to really experience Colombian culture and food. The local guides allowed us to really get to know each city we visited. With limited public transportation in Colombia, the ease of the private car was super nice... read more

KimKim took the worry out of planning our trip to Colombia. Our local specialist, Wendy, was always accessible and did a wonderful job coordinating all of our city-to-city flights, ground transportation, and excursions (including local English speaking guides at each destination). My family visited Bogota for two days (visiting Museo del Oro, Museo Botero, Cerro de Monserrate, Catedral de Sal, and Andres Carne de Res Chia), Eje Cafetero for 3 days (visiting Cafe La Morelia coffee farm, Valle... read more

We had a fantastic time in Colombia, and Wendy and our wonderful guides were such a huge part of that! Wendy did a great job of designing our itinerary and responding to our requests and interests, and each of our guides-- Andrea in Bogota, Andres in Medellin, and Oscar in Cartagena-- were warm, knowledgeable, and totally organized. As a single mom of 2, I'm usually the one handling all the logistics, tickets, emergencies, et cetera. With Kim Kim, I was able to relax and just enjoy an... read more

Our trip to Colombia was amazing. I whole heartedly recommend this trip to anyone seeking an interesting, inspiring and fun vacation. Wendy was a fabulous specialist - very responsive, helpful and kind. We enjoyed so many activities! In Bogota we loved visiting the Traditional Farmers Market with Maria Jose. She was so passionate about Colombia and her work. We learned so much and enjoyed the fruit and market. We had a blast dancing during a LBGT night in Bogotá! Our guide... read more
Santa Marta and Cartagena
Jun 29 - Jul 9, 2022
A quick review for your quick reminder. Despite our COVID set-back, we have positive feelings about our trip. In fact, it was having KimKim’s arranging of our need for an altered itinerary that was especially helpful. Both of our guides, Yube and Roberto, were good, but Yube was especially good. We liked the way she talked about a wide range of subjects, something that gave us a sense of Colombia today. And our best day was the one where we went up to the mountains with her (although we never understood why we used a boat instead of tubes).
Incredible first trip to Colombia!

We just returned from a magnificent vacation in Colombia planned by the amazing local specialist, Wendy. Wendy planned the perfect itinerary for us in Medellin, Zona Cafetera (coffee region) and Cali. She was so easy to communicate with leading up to the trip and checked in all the time during the trip to make sure all was going well. She coordinated amazing tours for us with local guides Samuel and John who had so much passion as guides me helped us truly appreciate the beauty of Colombia.... read more
