    Hi everyone and welcome, we are Tim and Isa, we are a couple made in Colombia ;).
    We are making our dreams come true by helping our family and friends to make the best out of life. We are organizing (motor) tours in and selling specialty Coffee in the Netherlands to make all other projects feasible. We work with our family on all our projects. We have a Finca (farm) where we host people (Overlanders) and start or end our tours.

    First, let us introduce ourselves and let you know how we ended up in this area, and after we can tell you about the property, how to get here and what we can offer you. also please excuse us we are not writers, we are just a couple with dreams.

    Hola!! I am Tim. Born and raised in the Netherlands. Well, I learned a lot of life lessons from my travels in the last 18 years, we are all alike, but do have some different views about different subjects around the world. In my former life, I was working for money to make new experiences, I never hated my job, but it was also not fulfilling totally. The first couple of working years were in hospitality, I loved it. Working in a team with sometimes long hour days, but the smiling faces (from customers and team members) as a result were priceless.

    After I finished my study I went traveling for a year in Southeast Asia and got a job offer at a hostel in Cambodia (epic experience). After a couple of months, I left to do some small jobs in Australia, money was needed. Here I made up my mind to go back to The Netherlands and settle down and go for a job that fitted my study, Marketing. I worked 6 years for a company in sales/marketing, I learned a lot but it was not the kind of life I wanted to live. I had a couple of travels in south and Central America and fell in LOVE with Colombia. The friendly faces and vibrant culture! With some help from my beloved friends and family, I made the decision...

    Fast forward to now, I am living in Colombia and got married in 2022 to Isa. We are restarting our business now with the whole family.
    For me, this adventure is about sharing and making memories and making more people smile!

    My motto: A day without laughter is a day wasted.

    Hola!! I am Isa and I´m from Venezuela. I studied to be a Chemical engineer. I left Venezuela in 2017 due to the social and economic crisis, it was horrible. I arrived in Colombia with many hopes and dreams.

    I met Tim (the love of my life ☺️) in Medellin where I was working. Through his eyes, I learned to love Colombia's culture and nature!! And since then we share together the dream of seeing us grow, have as much fun as possible and hope to make many people happy.

    I am a Venezuelan university professor, a lover of nature, reading, good cooking, hard-working, cheerful, persevering, self-taught, who emigrated due to the serious crisis that is plaguing our country and that does not allow us to live, only to survive. I am looking for new directions, a new beginning in this great country.

    I left Venezuela in search of new opportunities since as we all know Venezuela is in crisis and in Colombia I have the opportunity to work and live with a better quality of life, I like cooking, nature and I like the people who visit us feel good as in your own home, I am cheerful, optimistic, I love music and sports activities and always be ready to help. My motto: in the union is strength.

    We would like to invite you on an adventure, come see where we live, enjoy nature or city life away from the tourist trail you’ll experience the beauty of Colombian people, the friendly finca (farm) lifestyle, the real Colombia.
