(…) “This park is incredibly gorgeous and has so much to do and discover. Cesar was very knowledgeable about the park and Santa Marta in general. He was a great conversationalist and is so thoughtful and accommodating. This experience totally made our trip to Colombia!” (…)

Great Tour, Even Greater Guide!

(…) “It’s a hike through a jungle teeming with wildlife leading to three picturesque tropical beaches. But we got David, who is an absolute gem. “ (…)


Outstanding Guide makes this Trip special!

(…) “We had a great experience with Erik pointing out quite a few animals and birds which we likely would have missed without the guide.” (…)

Amazing Experience with Bukap! I cannot recommend Bukap travel enough! From my initial contact with Santiago I knew that everything would go so smoothly, the company was such a dream to deal with- such a refreshing experience of efficiency and professionalism in Colombia! They went above and beyond to accommodate us, our driver was on time and made our trip an absolute pleasure. If you’re going to northern Colombia, do yourself a favour and book with Bukap, you will not be disappointed. 10/10 for this company!!
5 start private transportation from Cartagena to Santa Marta by Bukap!! This was my first time in Colombia and I was little hesitant to book a private car for transportation. However based on some good reviews I made a decision to take private car from Cartagena to Santa Marta. Santiago whom i was in touch with since booking was really helpful and provided all the necessary information. The driver was so nice and friendly and made the 4 hours drive very pleasant. Overall I would highly recommend Bukap.

La mejor opción para visitar el parque nacional del Tayrona Una experiencia súper recomendable! Tanto nuestro conductor como nuestro guía, Juan, fueron encantadores y estuvieron pendientes de que disfrutáramos al máximo de la experiencia. Juan sabía muchísimo sobre el parque del Tayrona e hizo lo posible porque viéramos todos los animales posibles. Además, sabe explicar toda la naturaleza que allí se encuentra. Un chico muy simpático y profesional que se nota que, además, disfruta con su trabajo.

Minca to Cartagena private transport From the time of making the booking I experienced a high level of communication. I didn’t have to worry about anything or question anything My driver was very competent and drove well and friendly in an unobtrusive way. We made one stop at a nice service station on the way and made it to Cartagena in approximately four hours. Overall I’m glad I took this option, for me I felt it was a choice and worth the price.
Best attention, quick and convenient! The drivers were very nice. Always checking whether I needed something and they were always in time! The cars were clean and spacious!
