IT'S ALL IN THE FINE PRINT

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 group 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.

Accommodations

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.

WORD OF MOUTH FROM PAST TRAVELERS

"Searching for my next travel adventure it was kismet that I landed on El Camino’s Instagram page. El Camino is a must for every travel enthusiasts! With our talented photographer in tow, I thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of not having to worry about photographing every moment of my trip. I loved the anticipation of new images every morning, which gave the opportunity to relive the previous days adventures.  The Cartagena itinerary was impressive and while there were structured activities, I never felt overwhelmed and had many opportunities to go off on my own. From a mud bath in a volcano, a private cooking lesson with a local chef, and even a full day of fun in the sun on the Island of Rosario, El Camino Travel has now become the standard by which all my other package trips will be measured."

"We have been lucky enough to travel all over the world but nothing has ever felt as immersive or authentic as our experience with El Camino. We came away from this trip feeling changed for the better, the people and places we were introduced to were nothing short of spectacular and I know this was not something we could have ever put together ourselves. El Camino is so great at opening our hearts and eyes to so much of the world in an incredibly unique and incomparable way."  Jill + Kyla

"The El Camino experience is different from any other trip because the people you meet are essential to telling the story of the place and its culture. You want to get to know Trinidad and Tobago or Colombia or Mexico City in a more meaningful way? You meet its people and engage with them and their craft. That's the El Camino experience no one else can match." Nick P.

"The El Camino experience left me feeling energized and with hope that there are like minded travelers who want to experience rather than visit, are unafraid to open their minds, test their assumptions, and be forever changed when they get home." Maria L.

" Our trip to Colombia with El Camino was the first time we’d ever done a group experience. Frankly, what appealed to my husband and I were the unique experiences lined up for each day, the small-size group and the luxury of not having to plan the trip ourselves. We emailed in advance to find out the average age of folks who had participated on previous trips, only to find out that, generally, they were about twenty years younger than us…never mind, we thought, this could be fun! We absolutely loved our experience. I can’t say enough good about it…from the great communication leading up to the trip, to the care and thought that went into every activity, to the wonderful group who bonded over mud baths and dancing lessons and the amazing photography (Kate, you’re amazing) that captured every minute. Go, go, go on an El Camino tour – you won’t be disappointed. In fact, I think they’ve spoiled us for any other type of travel! " - Carmen G.
