Carmen Cáceres Chacón

I am originally from Spain, specifically from Southern Spain where I studied Tourism Degree and have mostly worked in.

I really love photography and traveling I get the most beautiful pictures! When I go on vacation I always try to do the highest amount of activities so I can discover and enjoy it to the fullest.

Like any good Spaniard, I really enjoy good food and good people, so part of my trips always involves tasting local food and meeting local people.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in Spain, Southern Spain, Portugal and Morocco."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I thought of studying Tourism as I really love traveling and Spain is such an important worldwide destination, with so many things to offer and discover.

The principal idea that pushed me to get into this world is to help foreigners discover the most hidden places in Spain. There is so much more to us than just party and siesta time.

Offering the most unique part of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco is both my job and passion at South Olé."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"As I really love small villages and unknown places, one of the most unique experiences I had was in a little village called Zaanstad in Northern Holland which looks just like a mock-up and has a wonderful chocolate smell because of its Chocolate Industry. I really enjoyed visiting Zaanse Schans Quarter as it's famous for its amazing mills and delightful cheeses and chocolates."
