Historical Cartagena

Explore the best kept secret of South America! Wander the cobblestone streets in the charming old city of Cartagena, admire the pastel colored buildings, savor exotic fruit, drink fresh coconut water, and learn how to salsa! And that's just the beginning ...

IMMERSIVE TRAVEL - You’ll get engaging highlights of your destination including some of the more traditional attractions, but mostly you’ll engage directly with locals (off the beaten path), who are eager to share the real experience and culture of the region.

DEDICATED GROUP PHOTOGRAPHER - Soak in every vibrant moment as it happens. Our dedicated photographer will document your journey so you can stay unplugged and fully engaged. You will receive 10 edited images delivered to you daily + an additional batch of photos a few weeks after the trip.

SOCIALLY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE - We empower the communities we visit with social initiatives and respectful tourism practices. That means supporting socially and environmentally prudent individuals, organizations, and activities in all the locations we visit. If anything, that commitment makes our journeys that much more fun! Imagine sharing authentic meals with local families, visiting local markets, meeting local business owners & creatives, engaging local guides, and more!

GIVE BACK - For every traveler that joins us on a trip, we donate a portion of the proceeds to either a local charity that is working to help those in the community we visited, OR to a small business that employes community members and generates income for basic living expenses.
