I have a degree in tourism administration from Cauca University. My passion for traveling started long time ago when I chose my career, because I wanted to do something different, something that I'd enjoy everyday of my life. I love to show the beauty of my country to 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 offer unique experiences, in which the people can discover Colombia in a deep and meaningful way, falling in love with the country and discovering why the only risk is wanting to stay.""
How did you get involved in travel?
"I started traveling during my time in university. I went to Ecuador and Chile with friends, and I helped organize those trips... the first was for more than 40 people, it was challenging but great at the same time and I learnt lot. I really love to experience other cultures, people and places, I think this 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 travel outside the country for two months some years ago. I went to Chile and Argentina and I learnt a lot about other cultures and my mind was opened to the love of traveling.
When I went to Mendoza in Argentina, which is a city 6-hour long from Santiago in Chile, I was planning to stay for just 4 days, but there was 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. In the end I could travel to Santiago, but those 6 hours finished being 12, because of the traffic jam along the way. Through this experience I became more patient, solution orientated and efficient when planning trips."
Featured trips & expertise
With this outdoorsy, yet culturally rich 8-day tour, you'll explore the historic and cosmopolitan side of Bogotá before heading north through the scenic Colombian highlands towards two of the country's most photogenic cobblestoned towns. Here, you’ll visit the underground salt mines, hike the Iguaque Lagoon, bike the Suarez Canyon, and finally explore the Spanish Colonial wonder that is Barichara — oozing with charm — before flying back to the capital's buzzing restaurants and nightlife.
You won't find a more festive month in Colombia than December. Everyone here prepares weeks in advance for Christmas and the New Year, with seemingly non-stop parties and celebrations leading up to the big day. Higher lodging and airfare prices are to be expected, as is great weather throughout the country—even famously rainy Bogotá stays mostly dry this month.
If you only visit one place on Colombia's northern coast, make sure it's Tayrona National Park. You'll pack a lot of activity into this short itinerary—arrive in the colonial city of Santa Marta before spending two days hiking to some of Tayrona's most secluded beaches and the Pueblito Ruins.
With all the nightlife, cultural experiences, and energy of this vibrant city, Medellín is an exhilarating ride—but when you're ready for a change of pace, the picturesque Antioquian countryside is waiting for you just outside of town. Swim, hike, and sample coffee to your heart's content with these great day trips from Medellín.
With 10 days, your family can easily combine three or more areas of Colombia thanks to an inexpensive domestic air service. And with so much diversity—from the Amazon and the Andes to cosmopolitan cities and quaint colonial pueblos—there are plenty of options for a tailor-made stay.

Trip to colombia, Colombia - Dec 29 - Jan 5, 2019
While the planning process was quite smooth initially, at the last minute there appeared to be a rush to assemble information from us. Further, we did not received an updated itinerary to include hotel changes before we left on our trip.
But, those details aside, we had a great experience overall and an especially memorable experience with two of our local guides; namely Maria and Vivi. Their attention to detail, promptness and professionalism was outstanding.
Trip to colombia, Colombia - Dec 19 - Dec 31, 2018
Our trip to Colombia took me and my husband to Bogota, Salento, Cocora Valley, Tayrona National Park, and Cartagena. I think what was most striking to us was the multitude of landscapes that exist within the country - mountains, valleys, beaches, tropical forests - it was all very beautiful and steeped in a tradition of ceremony, sustainability, and conservation. We were also impressed with the knowledge of our guides and the variety of their subject matter expertise. One was a world-traveled... read more
Colombia's caribbean coast - 7 days, Colombia - Dec 25 - Dec 31, 2018
Overall we had a really good trip. We were greeted at airport by Daniel, who was sweet, engaging and very knowledgeable. His English was quite good and he was very informative, sharing personal insights on history and culture. We never felt threatened or unsafe on the trip - we're also assuming that the second man who accompanied us during our first afternoon tour, and did not speak English, was there for security! Our lodging at Casa Canabal was very comfortable and very accommodating -... read more
