Fabían Levasseur

I have been traveling to many places until I discovered Colombia and fell in love with this country and its variety of landscape. Each one is more beautiful one after the other. Since then, I decided to live here, sharing my passion for travel with others and helping them enjoy and discover this fabulous country and all the treasures it has to offer.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I love nature, whether it is for a peaceful walk, observing fauna and flora, or feeling the adrenaline of an extreme adventure, there are so many possibilities to enjoy the beauty of nature.

I am also a fan of the history of civilization because you always have an opportunity to discover the history and understand better the culture of the country you are visiting. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I did not travel that much when I was a kid. I spent my summers in my home village near the beach. My first trip abroad was with school when I was fourteen, we were writing letters to English penfriends, and we did a cultural exchange spending one week in each other's family. It gave me a lot of interest in foreign languages and discovering new countries. Then I started to study international tourism. It gave me the chance to travel and work in different countries, in a multicultural environment, and live my passion. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will always remember how great I felt walking the streets of Cartagena for the first time, this city really has something in its air that gives you a smile 24/7.

The food and drinks are delicious, people very generous and always give their best so you feel great. I spent some days in Isla Rosario, lazing at the beach, never felt so relaxed, this place is amazing. I could admire one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life. "
