José Luis Pastor & Marcela Mariscal

Marcela was born in Bogota and started travelling through the country along with her family since she was very little. During a trip to Egypt, after graduating in Business Studies in the London Metropolitan University, she takes the chance to work as a tour guide through South America for English Company. When she realizes that Colombia is not part of the South American circuit, she decides to go back to her home country and work to promote Colombia as a world class travel destination, first through her blog and later by founding See Colombia Travel, an incoming tour operator in Colombia.

Born in Peru, Jose Luis is in close contact with countries of the five continents since childhood, which instilled a natural passion for both traveling and cultural diversity. As an expert in Corporate Marketing, he leaves his career in Telecommunications to co-own during seven years one of the most important incoming tour operators in Latin America … until he decided that Colombia was where he wanted to finally settle. He is currently the Communications Manager at See Colombia Travel, the Colombian tour operator he founded with his wife Marcela.

The Amazing Cocora Valley

 

When I visited England this past Christmas, there was général bewilderment at my lack of a tan. For people back home, Colombia is a sun-drenched paradise where we all drink coconut milk on the beach. Now, as lovely as that would be, I’m a Londoner and so I’m thankful to be living here in Bogota where I can indulge in that great English activity: complaining about the rain, even though it’s an unavoidable, inherent part of living in England (or Bogota).

Why did I choose to live in Colombia?

Hello all!

I get asked this question a lot. A lot. Why did I choose to live in Colombia? Why did I give up the successful Latin America incoming tour operator (with offices in many countries of the continent) that I co-owned to venture to this apparently “tough to sale” country? Why Colombia of all the countries I could have chosen?
