      Nothing short of amazing!

      Our recent trip to Colombia with El Camino Travel was nothing short of amazing! The hotel and restaurant selections were high quality but most importantly the carefully curated local experiences they arranged were so interesting, enriching, and fun! We truly got a taste of the Colombian culture!

      I’ve now done two trips with El Camino, one to Colombia in 2016 and another to Mexico in 2019. Both trips were excellent. The experiences are unique and carefully curated and the travelers who choose this type of group trip tend to be pretty awesome people. The photography is gorgeous and it’s so special to have professional photographs as a memento. I highly recommend this experience for anyone!

      Highly highly recommend!!

      Highly highly recommend!!
      I had been looking for a group travel option and was only finding two very opposing ends of the spectrum.. “party on a yacht in Mykonos” or “sit on a stop & go bus with a bunch of sweet retirees”.. neither of which fit what I was looking for.

      Then I stumbled upon El Camino on Instagram. “Who is this person which such amazing photos!?” I asked myself. And within the hour I’d booked myself a spot on the Nicaragua trip!

      Today I can say I’ve had the chance to go on three El Camino trips (Nicaragua, Cuba, and a one-time volunteer trip to Greece) and I cannot recommend them more highly. Pre-trip you’ll be worry free because everything is planned for you and you’ll be sent any details you need in advance. And the entire trip is thoughtfully curated and planned to ethically support the local tourism industry (small businesses, B&Bs, etc.) On the trip you can enjoy the moment and not preemptively worry about the memories because there’s a photographer to snap photos. You’ll meet inspirational fellow travelers and locals (I’m still in touch with many of the people I met on trips), go on adventures you’d never discover on your own, and come home to a file full of pictures so you can immediately pretend you are still on vacation as you flip through them.

      Exceeded my expectations by 1000%!!!

      Exceeded my expectations by 1000%!!!
      This was my first group tour and I had high expectations, but El Camino exceeded my expectations by 1000%!!! All the activities were very interesting, fun and well organized, it really showed me what Colombia is really about (not just the touristic spots). The hotels they picked were great, good location, safe and trendy. The food and beverages included in the tour were all amazing. They also gave us great recommendations for the meals that were not included. Having a photographer on tour was also really useful. Finally, our tour guide Pati was the best tour guide anyone could ever have!!

      We can't wait to do it all over again.

      My husband and I had been following El Camino on social media for years, and we finally decided to take the leap and book their Colombia trip. We were definitely nervous, since we’d never done a group trip before and generally like to do our own thing, but I cannot tell you how absolutely AMAZING our experience was. Not only were the experiences super local and incredible, but the people (including our fab host and photographer) were so cool and made the experience even more memorable. If you’re debating whether or not to sign up, DO IT! We already signed up for their Havana trip because we can’t wait to do it all over again.

      Very well organized and perfectly curated
      I went on the Palomino Outrage Retreat trip last month. It was very well organized and perfectly curated. All the activities were things I would have wanted to plan for myself but it would have been impossible to do on my own. We visited secluded, beautiful places that I would not have been able to access as a tourist or would have taken hours of research. This was the first time I had paid for an organized trip like this and I completely see the value. The people on the trip were great and the food was delicious!

      El Camino does small group travel well!

      El Camino does small group travel well!
      El Camino knows how to dig below the surface of a culture and provide a rich travel experience I could not get traveling solo. Mexico City and Oaxaca were very different cities to experience in one trip…. unique Mexican cultures in one country. The trip was well organized and provided quality on all levels. Very important to me they allowed free time and space to follow individual interests so I never felt restricted. Our small group of women were fun, independent and interesting individuals. El Camino does small group travel well! I highly recommend them.
