Who Is This Trip For? 

This trip is for the traveler who has an adventurous spirit, is looking to squeeze the most out of their time in Colombia, and cares about making the world a better place through responsible tourism. The trip is filled with experiences that allow you to be immersed in the varied cultures of Colombia. This traveler is open minded, inherently curious, and enjoys indulging in the moment.  While El Camino Travel provides a high level of customer service, our traveler is someone who is easy-going and amenable to change in the diverse and unpredictable landscape of travel in Latin America. 

This trip is also for a solo traveler who does not want to travel solo, but instead with an interesting group of people and for those who do not want to spend 8+ hours planning a trip of a lifetime. 

Note on the photography component: We provide a group photographer so that our travelers can go back to being present in the moment rather than worrying about capturing the moment. They are the photographer for the whole group and not a personal photographer to each individual traveler. We provide our travelers with dynamic and candid images throughout the trip so that they can share with their friends and family in real time. While this is an important element that adds to the unique experience of our trips, it is not the focus of our trip. Our travelers are excited about receiving stunning images each morning, but the act of travel and indulging in the moment is what they value most. 

Basic Info

Join El Camino Travel on an adventure that explores the Caribbean coastal town of Cartagena and the eternal spring of Medellin. This adventure includes salsa dancing, boat rides to private beaches, volcano soaked mud baths, coffee farms, and indulging in the diverse cuisine of both regions.

Leave your selfie stick at home. All tours include a personal photographer who will provide you with 20 dynamic and compelling images of the group on a daily basis, that you can immediately share with your social media.

Because we are obsessed with the details and experience this trip will only include six SHARED ROOMS. The reasoning for this is probably more complicated than you care to know, so we will just leave it at that. You can share a room with a friend, lover, platonic lover, someone you met on TINDER, or whoever else, but unfortunately all rooms must be shared. If you do not have a partner in crime, you must be comfortable sharing a room with another traveler in the group of the same sex. More details of the hotels will be shared upon purchase of the trip, but we promise we chose these locations because we love them with all our heart and soul and think they pass the El Camino standard of travel with flying colors.
