OUR TRAVEL PHILOSOPHY
We pride ourselves on showing the ‘true’ Colombia: the people, history, culture, cuisine, and natural beauty that make this such an incredible place to visit. We believe in taking time to soak in and enjoy each stop on the itinerary, and in seeking out experiences that are not always found in guidebooks.
From the time I was little, my parents instilled in me a thirst for travel. Every weekend was an opportunity to experience and see a new destination, learn from distinct cultures, and interact in a variety of environments. After many years of traveling throughout Colombia, I decided to expand my horizons and travel throughout South America. Through these journeys, I visited many other touristic sights and saw the potential of Colombia as a tourism destination. It’s for this reason that I decided to return home to Colombia to offer an authentic form of tourism that invites visitors to appreciate the beauty of the country in a way that is respectful of the people and the culture.
I traveled to 37 other countries and lived in Ukraine, Thailand, and Nepal before discovering Colombia. I came to Medellin, the city of eternal spring, expecting to stay for a month or two while deciding where to go next, and found the people, the city, and the climate too irresistible to leave. More than three years later, I am thrilled to make Medellin my home and I wake up every day feeling fortunate to live in such a diverse, beautiful country. I am passionate about photography and excited to be part of a new chapter in the history of Colombia, showing travelers the many wonders of this special place. Just be warned, you will be tempted to stay!
Happily living in Colombia for over three years, I have only grown more connected to the stories, people, and history that make Colombia’s different cultures so rich. I believe that personal connections to new places and environments leave long-lasting imprints on the world and I am truly passionate about showing visitors the wonders of Colombia, especially the people, and the cuisine. Colombia has an infectious energy that I love and I am in constant awe of the fact that we are so close to the Caribbean, the Pacific, the Amazons, two deserts, plains, coffee regions, volcanoes, and more! I’ve lived on three continents, served in the Peace Corps, and am now proud to call Medellin my home.
Director of Coffee Experiences
Growing up in Medellin, I followed my two passions: animals, for which I studied to become a licensed veterinarian and my other love, travel, I cultivated while exploring South America. In 2013, I had an unfortunate accident working with a horse and while recovering I began to work in tourism and developed a strong interest in learning about my own Colombian culture. I started to get involved in coffee tourism and fell in love with coffee culture, production processes, and life on farms. The science is fascinating and the culture is rich and beautiful. I am incredibly excited to show all the passion and hard work that goes into every sip of this wonderful and complex drink.
Head of Growth
Several years ago I came to Colombia for a quick visit. I was hooked, and three months later I left my job in tech to return to this beautiful country. Ever since then I’ve been in love with Latin America and proud to have found a home in Colombia. The culture, outdoors, and adventures offered here are totally unique.
Every time I venture out to a new region of Colombia I am struck by truly distinct landscapes. It’s my pleasure to share this same awe with our clients and help them experience the very best Colombia has to offer.
And for coffee lovers, there is no better place to enjoy the ritual of brewing your first morning cup.
