What an incredible experience!

Michael was attentive and listened to my needs on the trip. Each guide, Jose and Roberto, were kind, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Each excursion and outing brought my spouse and I a little closer to the amazing spirit of the people of Colombia. Each accommodation was comfortable and sustainably minded. I cannot say enough great things about this trip and I cannot recommend this once-in-a-lifetime experience enough. Go to Colombia and experience its wonders! read more

Hotel Reviews
La Campana Hotel Boutique
Medellín

Delicious breakfast options and a really unique experience. I felt like I was part of a family! Rooms and beds were so comfortable. Bathrooms were a bit small, but that's the American in me.

Hotel Don Pedro De Heredia
Cartagena de Indias

What a cool building and the staff was so kind. The room had lots of old world charm, including a tiny bathroom and gaps in window frames just small enough for mosquitoes. Would have loved a mosquito net in my room for the stay, but other than that, it was a wonderful place AND really close to everything.

Tour to Totumo Volcano

What a fun experience, but too many tourist traps. I ended up tipping so many people and while we were somewhat warned about it, it was still a lot.
