I have always liked to travel and discover places that enrich me by their culture and the experiences that can only be experienced when meeting the people who really live there. That is why my work makes me so happy. I like being able to help travelers experience Colombia in the best possible way.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in tailor-made trips throughout Colombia, family trips, highlight programs, adventure itineraries and any other trips that clients are looking for."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have traveled and explored Colombia from east to west, north to south, by bus, by bicycle, and by foot. I can offer years of experience, strengthened by the cooperation with experienced colleagues in my team and tour specialists, which has help me understand the profile and expectations of International travelers."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One of the experiences that marked me the most when traveling throughout Colombia was the opportunity to ascend to "El Nevado del Tolima" (5215 m), on a journey that demanded me physically and mentally in an impressive way because I had never climbed a mountain of this size, nor did I have the previous experience to do so.
The wonderful scenery, the experience of sharing this adventure with my friends and the tranquility and peace that I lived in the middle of the mountains, are some of the things that this incredible trip gave me."
