WANNA SEE HOW your SPARK EXPERIENCE LOOKS LIKE?
Cartagena is a magical place. Everyone visits this town for a reason. Whether is to have fun, recalibrate, get off-radar or enjoy one of those father-son trips, watch the video below to see a sample of how a Spark Experience looks like (we also don’t feature EVERYTHING in it – leave some room for imagination):
Colombia Vacation Packages: Why This Is #1
1. Accommodation & Daily Breakfast in a 5-star Hotel
We’ll be staying at the gorgeous Hotel Almirante situated right by the beach. Breakfast will be also included. Living the good life.
2. Private Driver From/To The Airport
You’ll be picked up at the airport in Cartagena and brought to our hotel, where we’ll be waiting for you with a drink. A ride to the airport on the last day is also set.
3. Welcome Dinner
A fabulous dinner is planned for the day you arrive. Just so you can immerse yourself in the culture as soon as you arrive.
4. Fly Like a Superhero
You will do this! Flyboarding seems harder than it is, trust us. 🙂 You can’t experience this feeling in too many places. Worth the adrenaline rush.
5. Escape to a Remote Island
At some point, we will leave Cartagena for a couple of days and go to a “rustic” island. Beach time, sand, good times. Something different that you may experience at home.
6. Ultimate Spa Experience
A well-deserved treatment at one of our partners in Cartagena. It includes: jacuzzi before the treatment, a relaxing one-hour massage, and ends with sparkling champagne, chocolate, and strawberries.
7. Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride
Centro Historico is the hottest place in Cartagena. You’ll see why. We will take you around it in a horse-drawn carriage. Just because you’re royalty for the week. Selfie time.
8. Professional Pictures
We will have a top-quality group, so why not have a professional photographer to take pictures of us? We mean pics that you can share, of course :). Time for those Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn profile pics to have an alternative.
9. A Surprise!
As usual in every Spark trip, we will have a little surprise for you. We promised a different trip than any of the other Colombia vacation packages, so it will be.
10. Domestic Transportation
Everywhere we will go to in Cartagena for Spark will be taken care of, driving-wise. It will save everyone a lot of stress and money.
DEADLINE FOR EARLY BIRD PRICE
WHO THIS IS FOR
✓ 9-5’ers or someone who’s been working long hours and wants to detach from daily reality.
✓ Mid-life crisis individuals who don’t want to have regrets.
✓ Someone who want to escape to a cultured and rustic adventure.
✓ Someone who wants to recharge their life and press the reset button.

✓ Someone who is willing to get out of their comfort zone.
✓ Someone who is looking for father-son trips, unusual travel destinations or new life changing trips.

✗ A mastermind conference or MLM business. #HateThatS*%t
✗ One drama-queen friendly zone. Leave your problems at home.
✗ Any of the regular Colombia vacation packages out there. This is not on platforms like TripAdvisor or GetYourGuide. We screen the participants, so you are in good company.
✗ Your average trip.
**No, we won’t be riding an ostrich in Colombia. We will go to Curacao for that. 🙂

What else makes this trip one of the best Colombia vacation packages?
What else is different than the other Colombia vacation packages? The people. Here is the last Spark Experience cohort. Do they look happy?
WHO ARE THE 10 SELECTED APPLICANTS?
Similar to the Spark Experience participants who join the Maldives, Italy, Transylvania, Argentina & Uruguay or Colombia trips, we are carefully selecting the people that will be coming to Colombia. Hence the application form at the bottom of this page. Here is why.
The people you meet are a meaningful part of a travel experience, especially if you want to turn it into one of those trips of a lifetime. Do you know how sometimes there’s someone in a group who the rest refers to as: ‘that guy’ or ‘that chick’? That’s not going to happen here. After phone interviews, researching social media profiles, and getting references, we’ll put together our travel dream team. You’ll be with people who have life stories to tell and knowledge to share.
We want all 10 participants to leave as best friends at the end of the Colombian adventure. The Spark Experience offers life-changing trips. The idea is to keep in touch forever, become an exclusive community over time, and go on other memorable, bucket list trips together.
Here is the kicker: you won’t know who the other travel partners are until a week before the trip!
HAVE YOU MET YOUR HOST? HERE IS WHY YOU SHOULD TRAVEL WITH HIM
Your main host will be Sorin Mihailovici, the producer of the Travel by Dart series. One of the best things that happened to him was to be laid off from his TV job. It forced him to find ways to support himself and challenged his entrepreneurial spirit.
Sorin’s breakthrough came after a trip to South Africa that he initially didn’t want to take because he wanted “to wait until he makes more money”. However, his best friend pushed him to go. Although Sorin spent more money than he anticipated, the African getaway changed his life. It made him realize that life experiences are far more intrinsically valuable than things, it revitalized his mind, sparked his imagination, and inspired him to create the venture that ended up being his bread and butter today. You’re just about to be part of it.
Sorin now has unique travel experiences that generations of families don’t have in a lifetime, from diving the shipwrecks in the Bermuda Triangle to discovering the mystery of the Easter Island heads. He is also known for cruising on pirate ships in Indonesia, exploring the Amazon rainforest jungle, or being invited into J Balvin’s house.
For the last few years, Sorin has made sandy beaches his home in Thailand, Curacao, Colombia, Cuba and Bermuda. Let him share his love of travel, adventure, and Cartagena with you.
More Inspiration For You
If you’re looking for a creative spark, Sorin is an entrepreneur who has been a TV producer, made the State’s “most wanted” list in Romania, acted in movies and commercials, worked as a TV producer and created his own series, Travel by Dart. Sorin is also the founder of the mega-popular Scam Detector, a platform that exposes the world’s most notorious scams, so traveling safe is his priority. Sorin has been featured on Forbes, ABC, BBC, CBS, FOX, Global, CTV, and pretty much all the major media platforms in the world.
We really hope to meet you in Cartagena, for an event that doesn’t compare to any of the other Colombia vacation packages. So come with us, and let’s make some real magic together.
We are not a travel agency. We are a lifestyle agency.
