My trip to Cartagena was absolutely incredible all due to the careful planning of Margarita and her team! From the early stages of planning, I was unsure if it was safe for a solo traveler, but I didn't want to give up the dream to go. Margarita was incredibly attentive and patient with me through all of my concerns and reservations. She is truly the reason I was comfortable enough to experience such a beautiful, hospitable city.

Liz was also a local guide, who would constantly check in with me and greeted me on my first day at the hotel. She is fantastic.
The hotel selected was absolutely beautiful- highly recommend. Participating in a cooking class and salsa dance class, helped me immerse in the culture.

My flight was cancelled while I waited at the airport. Liz and Margarita both made themselves available to arrange additional car services and book hotel reservations for the extra nights I had to spend in Cartagena. They were both readily available to help me and ease all of the stress I had from a flight cancelation.

I cannot express my gratitude enough for Margarita and Liz making my trip so wonderful! If you are even slightly thinking of going to Colombia, you should do it! I loved my adventure and the warmth of the people there.
