Yuliana Martínez

I am a professional in Tourism. My passion about traveling started long time ago when I decided my career, because I wanted something different, something that I enjoy everyday of my life. I love to show the beauty of my country to the people, I like to organize tours and trips to amazing destinations, where people can really get in touch with Colombia and its magic.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I am really into nature and cultural activities, I love to give unique experiences, in which the people can discover Colombia in a deep way, falling in love with it and discovering why the risk is wanting to stay."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started traveling at university. I went to Ecuador and Chile with friends, and I helped to organize those trips... the first was for more than 40 people, it was chalenging but great at the same time and I learn lot. I really love to know other cultures, people and places, I think is the best way to grow and open your mind to the differences and ways of life. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I had the opportunity to be out of the country for two months some years ago. In that time I went to Chile and Argentina. In this time I learnt a lot about other cultures and my mind was opened to the love of traveling.
When I went to Argentina, Mendoza, which is a city 6-hour long from Santiago in Chile, I was planning to stay just for 4 days, but there were a lot of snow and the border with Chile was closed for many days. I had to stay there for 5 more days and at first it was hard because it was not planned, and it was stressful to go everyday to the bus terminal, got on the bus for hours and then go back again to the hostel many times. At the end I could travel to Santiago, but those 6 hours finished in 12, for the long traffic jam all over the way. Through this experience I became more patient, solucion oriented and efficient when planning trips."
