About this trip

We are beyond excited about our inaugural trip to Colombia in 2023. Our Founder, Chelsea, and Director of Operations, Pamela Aguilar, had the most incredible and inspiring trip to Antioquia in May 2022 to receive an award at the 2022 Latin America TVAs. During their week in Colombia, they met with street artists, dancers, and musicians in Comuna 13, dined al fresco in the heart of Medellín, learned how to make ceramics, tuk-tucked around the colorful streets of Guatapé, and spent an incredible day visiting one of the largest orchid collections in the world. 


In the next two weeks, we will be finalizing the details of this trip and uploading them here. What we can tell you is that this trip will include time in Medellín, the Antioquian countryside, Guatapé, and Cartagena. We will learn about Colombian history and the struggles and triumphs in the past twenty years as Colombia recovers from decades of political and economic instability and crime. We were blown away by the creativity, passion, and the general spirit during our time in Colombia and we can't wait to share it with you!

The Heart of Travel was born out of a deep-rooted love and passion for travel, art, history, food, nature, culture and adventure as well as a call to give back to the communities and people that had already provided us with so much. The travel industry has long been bombarded with double decker tour busses, beach front resorts and cruise ships, often at the expense of the local communities. As a response to this failing system, we began a boutique travel company that allows clients to explore new places in an authentic and non-touristy way, offering travelers a more intimate and unique experience all while removing the stress and hassle of researching, planning, bargain hunting, reserving and more that goes along with planning a trip or vacation.

We had a wonderful trip to Costa Rica. We were with a great group of people and enjoyed comfortable accommodations, good food, and interesting outings. We visited three different geographic areas in Costa Rica and learned a great deal about the plants, animals and people in each. Our guides were informative and fun, and Chelsea handled every situation with ease.

Most amazing trip ever. Wonderfully organized covering many insightful aspects of Ecuadorian culture and its varied people. Great to learn all that is done to preserve Ecuador’s special natural treasures. Our Ecuadorian guide, Gustavo, went over and above to make our visit the best I have ever had when traveling in a foreign country.

Gustavo, our guide, was wonderful! He was attentive to details & helpful & organized. Great meals including choices like fresh fish and the desserts were fabulous. All the animals and great activities were life changing . Our days were packed with adventure. Some of the boat rides & bus rides in the Galapagos were long & uncomfortable. The accommodations were quite good and ranged from excellent (Hotel de la Isla) to comfortable with a view. (Casa de María needs some hooks to hang things in the rooms but the views were magnificent so can’t complain too much. ) All the support staff from guides to drivers, etc. we’re very warm & welcoming.

Absolutely loved the casa gardenia. Such great breakfasts options. Passion fruit is my new favorite... and such GREAT service. They anticipated our every need... even had food to go for our EARLY morning departures. Thank you !

Had a wonderful guide that knew all the best spots to share with us. He kept us busy without feeling overwhelmed. He was extremely informative about what we were experiencing and sharing the culture.
