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.

For many, however, all they've ever seen is negative news coming out of the country (no matter how much positive press is being written right now). It has always interested me just what these people might think of Colombia should they experience it for themselves....

Juan Valdez: As Colombian as it gets

I was staying with a couple of Colombians and a friend of mine came to visit us from Scotland. Keen to know everything about Colombian culture, she sat listening intently as our hosts unloaded hours of information about the country’s history of the country, and how things are now. Having explored what I thought was every corner possible, my friend suddenly turned meek. Sheepishly, she asked, "What about Starbucks? Are there any Starbucks here?" Laughter rung through the apartment.
