Mily Figueroa

I always felt attracted to explore my country and see the world. Each trip is a new experience, sometimes a life lesson. Traveling is a never-ending learning story, a new chapter to live.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Travel planning, responsible travel and hotel industry."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Since very young, I wanted to work in the tourism industry and started with travel planning. Later, I specialized in hospitality, did my internship in Colorado and worked on cruises in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. When returned to my country I was part of a sustainable and rural tourism project."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will never forget when I had to prepare lessons, teach about hotel activities to teenagers of a community, in the near future they had to take care and be in charge of the hotel of their community.

I loved being part of this project, it was a mutual learning, cultural enrichment and above all, felt that this would be like a little seed that could germinate in the next generation."
