Vanessa Malafronte

My name is Vanessa and I am your travel specialist in Mexico. I studied Tourism Management and I am passionate about traveling. Traveling is more than just simple sightseeing, it is a symbol of freedom that helps us understand how beautiful, charming and fascinating our world is. My goal is to ignite your wanderlust and encourage you to pack your bags and go to see the wonders of Mexico!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"My specialty is the Central and Southern regions of Mexico. I will create a unique travel experience for you by showing you the off-beaten-tracks, with activities ranging from ecotourism, to cultural and community-based tourism"

How did you get involved in travel?

"I am Italian, but I grew up in Germany. This is probably the reason why I already got in touch with traveling since I was little. My family took me traveling whenever there was a possibility. They wanted me to grow up open-minded and show me different cultures and wonders of this beautiful world. This ignited my never-ending love and curiosity for other countries."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Having the opportunity to do my internship for my tourism studies in Puerto Morelos, a small town between Cancún and Playa del Carmen in Mexico, changed my life. It was my first experience outside of Europe and I was nervous, knowing that I was so far away from family and friends. Day after day I got to know this beautiful and diverse country and its people better. There is this special energy in the Riviera Maya, which I can’t describe, and it changed me as a person. I have never been so fulfilled and happy before. Now I’m here trying to inspire travelers to visit this amazing country."
