About Us

QUIMBAYA – The name of an ancient pre-Colombian civilization, noted for their gold work characterized by technical accuracy and detailed designs.

The culture’s the most emblematic piece comes from this period, a form of poporo known as the Poporo Quimbaya, on exhibit at the Bogotá Gold Museum.

In 1987, Claudia Terrade founded Quimbaya Tours in Bogotá, Colombia to introduce her home country as a new destination to French travelers. She named it QUIMBAYA, to follow the dedication of this ancient civilization and to give an efficient, experienced and reliable team.

Later in 1988, Jean Terrade joined Claudia’s passion for her country and for a continent creating a new corporate label, Quimbaya Latin America. QUIMBAYA since then has grown and blossomed attracting more travel agents from around the world to 11 destinations in Latin America.
