About this trip

TRAVEL CONSULTING & ITINERARY BUILDING


Looking to explore Latin American independently but need a little guidance when it comes to planning your itinerary, booking your lodging or deciding where to eat?  Heart of Travel offers customized travel consulting to help you maximize your time and money which means you can have a more memorable travel experience without the stress of spending an hour in your hotel room trying to google where to get lunch or the best way to travel from point A to point B. 


Plus, for those of you who are truly looking to travel in a more ethical, efficient and responsible way you know how much work can go into researching and dissecting what lodging options to stay at, what restaurants to eat at, what tour companies to support, etc. We cut all of that work out for you by connecting you with our trusted and well-known contacts where we know your money is being spent wisely; giving you both quality and great value while also getting money directly into the hands of the people working so hard to make your travel experience a reality. 


HOW DOES TRAVEL CONSULTING WORK?


1. First, you’ll fill out and submit the brief questionnaire found here. It’s ok if you don’t have all of the answers, we can figure them out together on our first call. However, the more information you can provide us with in advance the faster we can narrow things down to meet your specific needs and interests. 


2. After we’ve reviewed your questionnaire we will set up a time for our call. During this call, we will go over all of your answers, fill in any gaps and provide you with some immediate useful information or trips. Initial phone/video call with Heart of Travel consultant can be set up via Facetime, Skype, Zoom or any preferred method of communication. Of course, if we are in the same geographical area we always love to meet up for coffee face to face ;) 

3. After your initial call we will follow up via email with the following:

  • Suggested layout for your itinerary 
  • Suggested options for accommodations, restaurants and must-do activities 
  • Suggested international flights based off of your tentative travel dates 
  • Heart of Travel “Welcome Packet” specific to your destination full of tips for travel to this area including information on language, cultural etiquette, currency, weather, packing lists, insider tips and a list of recommended films and books to check out for those looking to deepen their understanding of history, culture, politics, and society prior to their trip 
  • Basic Travel Spanish Packet 
  • A proposed itinerary where Heart of Travel coordinates all aspects of your travel that you can book on the spot completely eliminating all the work and stress or travel planning for you. 

4. Upon receiving the follow-up email after our call if you opt for us to book your travel experience on your behalf with our preferred hotels, guides, transportation providers, etc. we are more than happy to make any requested changes or tweaks to the itinerary. If you opt to continue planning and booking your travel on your own we are happy to hop on a final 30-minute call or chat via email to answer any final questions or clean up any doubts that you may have! 


PRICE


$300 non-refundable payment. Heart of Travel we will apply a $100 credit from the $300 consulting payment towards the total bill when you opt for us to book your trip on your behalf!

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.

Prompt service. Excellent driver and comfortable ride. Heart of Travel made my arrival from Guatemala City to Antigua very enjoyable. I would highly recommend their services.
This was my second trip with Heart of Travel and it was perfect in every way. The Parque Hotel was beautiful and in a wonderful location. Dylan and Daniel were the best guides and Allie—an added bonus— The Heart of Travel’s photographer. Daniel, the local guide, is so knowledgeable that you will learn so much from him. Dylan also. The Restaurant’s Chelsea picked were all different and wonderful. Lisa, our food tour guide, gave us the best experience at The Market we went to. I loved Mexico City and I look forward to my next journey with Heart of Travel—where ever that may be. Thank you Everyone who made this trip so perfect and memorable. CRP
Even though I speak Fair Spanish, I was a little intimidated to tour Mexico City on my own, given the size and complexity of getting around. Our tour guide showed us the best of Mexico City, with no hassles.
We had an amazing time exploring the park and enjoying some fun ziplining! This part is so dense and green and there is an option of eating and having some drinks at the bottom of the park. There is so much to see and the bridges are a really fun part of seeing the jungle for all vantage points! Selvyn, our guide and driver, transported us to the park and spent time with part of my family who didn't opt into doing the ziplining and made them feel very comfortable as they waited for us. Could not recommend this adventure more!
This activity was simply the best! After a day of hiking el Volcan Pacaya we were taken to this spa and were in such a relaxed mode. We got to alternate the water circuits as well as have a free smoothie, a great couples massage, and tea. We spent a couple of hours simply taking pictures and exploring the spa. Very clean and wonderful customer service. Highly recommended! Afterwards we were picked up and taken back to our hotel in Antigua.
