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.

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 family.
My guide Manuela in Medellin was a dream. She was so comfortable to be around she made me feel like we were old friends. The amount of knowledge she had about the city, culture and country was amazing. I wish I would have recorded so I could remember every word lol I cannot recommend her enough.
The park 10 hotel where I stayed while in the city was perfect for me. The location in Medellin was fantastic. The restaurant Lussac adjacent the hotel had a wonderful menu and having room service an option made for a great dining experience after a long day of sightseeing. The staff were friendly and their quality of service made it an easy decision to stay there again in the future.
I also went to Nuquí on the coast which was wet, wild a d wonderful. I stayed at LaBayka ecolodge. This is wet county with beautiful black sand beaches. I enjoyed birdwatching from my hammock, saw a sloth through binoculars in the common area, went whale watching and saw baby sea turtles make their way into the sea for the first time. This place was a dream. There was too much to see and soak in. For someone looking for an adventure this was a great place to see soo much beauty in one place. Just expect to be wet as rain and humidity are a part of life there.
The staff was kind and patient with my limited Spanish. They made sure I always was included in activities and checked in to make sure things were ok. The food was simple, clean and wonderful. With 70% of it being grown on the property itself.
So much still to see in Colombia. Manuela painted such a vivid picture in my mind of things yet to see I have to go back.
Thank you KimKim!!!
