from $0USD
CHECK DATES Flight options available

You've been working your ass off to get that MBA so now you should travel/adventure/party your ass off in a couple of the most amazing/inspiring/beautiful countries on earth!

Starting off in Caribbean Cartagena, Colombia we will get all those travel jollies pumpin' by exploring this impeccably preserved colonial city situated on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea.  Then we'll start to get some elevation by heading up to the Andes Mountains and taking in the beautiful natural wonders of Guatapé and the cool af urban life in Medellìn.  Narcos lovers will get a kick out of the history of this part.

Next, we take it even higher up to the former capital of the Incan Empire - Cusco, Peru which is an epic experience on its own but it is the jumping-off point for the crown jewel of the trip - Machu Pichu!  We'll have our hearts and minds inspired by the massiveness of the history and culture, our bellies will be full of Peruvian cuisine and our heads will hurt from the bad decisions resulting from those pisco sours.

This trip will be custom-built for your group.  We'll have our Spanish-speaking "trip concierge" along for the good times to make sure that you get exactly what you want out of this trip.  Nobody in your group wants to be the one making sure the bus is on time, making sure you get a good price on activities or finding a pharmacy for that rash.  Josh is your guy and he's practically local.

This is going to be the perfect trip to blow off all that steam coming from studies and pandemic stress.  


  • Day 1-4   (Cartagena)

    Fly into Cartagena.

    Amazing coastal city on the Caribbean Sea with Spanish colonial architecture, lots to do and see along with a bumpin’ nightlife. There’s no place like it.

    We stay in the walled part of the city and make sure to walk around and catch the sunset over the ocean before we start our night. Check out some cool roof top pools, world-class SCUBA diving, a boat ride to our own beach for a BBQ, and more.

    Don't forget about Cartagena's famous nightlife and shopping! We finish the trip off with a fun trip around the city on a Colombian Chiva bus (picture a school bus that has been pimped out to be the ultimate fiesta bus). Cartegena is sure to blow your mind!
