As you may know, we (Manue and Nikka) went to Cartagena, Colombia this past April. We fell in love. 
It was an adventure that provided a new perspective, a shift in thinking, and much needed relaxation. It was the reset we didn't know we needed. 

When we came back we could not stop talking about the magical city- how it did wonders on everything from our skin (clear and glowing), to our ambitions, to our day to day lives. We knew that we needed to share this with everyone. 

Cartagena is full of history, beauty, and warmth. The Old City, where we will be staying, was founded in 1533 as a Spanish port. The colonial architecture is colorful and charming, making it the perfect backdrop for a private workshop from Colombia's leading creative consultants, Curiosofia, on embracing your creativity and defining dreams and goals. 

Your trip will be all-inclusive- once you get on the plane, you won't have to worry about anything except sunblock. 
We will be staying right in the center of the walled city in a gorgeous boutique hotel, eat incredible food, dance champeta, salsa, and merengue, relax at Colombia's white sand beaches, and make incredible friendships. 

 Yes, every corner of Cartagena is this colorful.

Just a FEW of the things planned- 

- We'll be flying in Curiosofia, Colombia's leading creative consultants, for a workshop on strengthening creativity skills and goal setting. 

- A beach day at one of Cartagena's pristine islands.

- Salsa lessons (and then a night out to practice your new dance moves.)

- Historical tours through Cartagena's streets and forts.

- Goal setting, community building, and sessions to reflect on your dreams and ideas.

- Sunset dinners, group hangouts, fresh food, and opportunities to recharge.

Why should I come?

If you've been wanting to travel more but you don't know where to begin, this is the answer. We'll do all the planning for you, be your guides, and provide you with an incredible insider look into Colombia without being touristy. This isn't your average beach trip- we're going to be talking about goals, making real friendships, and come back feeling renewed and inspired.

If you're a photographer or social media savvy, this is an investment into your brand. We are flying in Colombia's top creative consulting company for a private workshop, which is a reason to come in and of itself. Don't forget the breathtaking architecture, lush wildlife, and a city with color on every corner.

If you haven't treated yourself to the time you deserve, commit to five days of bliss in the Caribbean with us. Put yourself first with lazy beach days and fresh food. 

If you love to explore and adventure, this is the dream trip. Colombia is rich in culture and since it's where we are from we'll show you the hidden gems of the city while having fun. We have an incredible group of like-minded women (including you!) who, by the end of the trip, will feel like family. It's like the summer camp of your dreams- except there will be mojitos.
