Seckovic takes travelers well beyond Cartagena and Bogotá, impressing them with countrywide pilgrimages centered around novelist Gabriel García Márquez, farm visits to pick produce like lulo, the Andean fruit, and tours of jewelry workshops in the town of Santa Cruz de Mompox. 

Some of his favorite recommendations include the "White City" of Popayan, the remote La Guajira peninsula, and the Tatacoa Desert. But there are exciting — and meaningful — opportunities in urban settings, too. "We had a young family from New York that wanted to donate two suitcases full of baby toys and clothes," he shares. "We identified a foundation in Cartagena where the clients not only donated their belongings but also spent the day interacting with the foundation's children and teaching them basic English."

A lesser-known area that's currently booming, says Seckovic, is the colonial village of Barichara in the Santander department. "As well as being arguably the prettiest village in Colombia, the small town is surrounded by stunning scenery and a wealth of accessible activities such as hiking, biking, rafting, and paragliding. The opening of the local airport later this year will make Barichara a lot more accessible from other parts of Colombia."

"My family and I worked with Boris and his partner Marc on a two-week vacation to Colombia. He was incredibly responsive both before and during our vacation. They created an itinerary perfectly suited to our family's needs. Whether it was top-notch luxury accommodations, arranging the perfect tour or adventure, using the very best guides, or recommending fabulous restaurants, they continuously exceeded our high expectations." — Ed B.
