Boogaloo organized our trip to Colombia. With 10 boys from the Netherlands we did a 2,5 week trip around the country. The country was absolutely amazing and Laura (Boogaloo) managed our trip really well. The good thing about hiring Boogaloo is that they are a local agency, so they know the people, the hostels/hotels, the restaurants and the country very well. The communication with Laura is very easy before and during the trip. Laura knew exactly what we would like: A combination between activities, parties and relaxing!
We chose to take Laura with us during the whole trip and we highly recommend that! Laura is not only a great guide but also a great friend that loves talking about her and your interests. Beforehand we were doubting about having a guide with us during the trip, but now I can say that it makes life a lot easier and especially a lot more fun!!
The last thing is the pricing: Boogaloo is extremely open and fair about their pricing. The price reflected the trip very well but was a lot lower than the price of other Western agencies.
So, if you are planning a trip to Colombia with a group, I can highly recommend Boogaloo travel. The quality of the trip is better due to their local knowledge and the price is not comparable with other Western agencies. Laura is fantastic to have around and she customises your whole trip to your preferences!!

Boogaloo Travel organised our honeymoon! We liased with Laura to get a tailor made trip that was specific to our style. While in Colombia Laura contacted us everyday with tips and sorted out any problems which was great because we didn’t speak much Spanish. Having Laura’s help meant good deals at all the hotels and I didn’t have to spend our holiday doing individual bookings! Amazing! Email me here

My Colombian sailing trip and tour guide of Cartagena wouldn’t have been possible with out Boogaloo travel and our amazing host Laura Vega. After taking a look at the boogaloo website I made a quick phone call and Laura pretty much took over from there. With only a short time to plan she was able to find a few different options for sail boats for my family and I to charter off shore of Cartagena.
All of the amenities, meal plans and drinks were prepared on board and ready for our arrival. On board we had a captain and skipper both very helpful, informative and fun to be Around. Laura stayed on board as well, acting as not only host but an incredible chef! Meals felt like they were prepared in a 5 star restaurant rather than the little kitchen of a 60 foot monohull sail boat. Cocktail hour was no different. The captain on the boat was very helpful in working to find us the best locations to sail that gave us great wind for kiteboarding and also smooth seas for the few passengers that were sitting back on the boat trying to enjoy a first sailing experience.
We found tucked away peaceful coves to hide from ocean swell for calm nights at sea and kitesurfing during the day we were able to do down winders along side a sail boat under full sail as well as ride butter flat spots. Everywhere we went was picture perfect, tropical, windy and we were the only kite boarders in sight! For those who weren’t kiting, drinks were prepared, snorkelling, swimming with dolphins, and stand up paddle boards or just laying around reading enjoying the beautiful weather was the best activities.
Back on land after a few days sail trip Laura again did a fantastic job organising accommodation at a great price and convenient locations. We finished our experience with a historical tour of Cartagena and we were amazed as the stories and information we would not have known with out a tour guide. Absolutely 100% recommended having your trip planned by Laura Vega and Boogaloo travel in and around Cartagena she is complete professional and extremely essential if trying to get the most of your kiteboarding or general holiday.

Our trip with Boogaloo Travel was simply amazing! We enjoyed the hidden pleasures around Cartagena with Laura, the most insightful and energetic guide you can ask for. Although our trip was short we discovered the beauty and the vibe that makes Colombia so special. We will join again for relaxation and adventure soon and recommend it warmly to everybody!

From the start of the tour you know you are in good hands! Travelling for one month with a knowledgeable and very personable leader was the experience of a lifetime. Laura added a truly unique element to the Colombian adventure – projecting energy and good vibes. The experience was enriched with her guidance and own love for exploring! Email me here

Laura was our fearless leader on a 2 week group trip through Colombia. Not only was she very knowledgeable about each place we visited, her organisation was top notch and if things didn’t go to plan (as is often the case in South America), she was quick to arrange a Plan B, all the while being full of enthusiasm, excitement and good humour.
Better yet, Laura was very flexible with our options and ensured that everyone was well looked after and able to do their own thing if they wished, and even after just 2 weeks, everyone in the group had become very tight knit with Laura at the centre of it all. To see Colombia with any other leader could never be as good!
