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.

Diana Holguín

My name is Diana and I was born in Miami, FL to Colombian parents. Even though I lived many years outside of Colombia, I was partly raised here in Bogotá and I’ve always had a strong connection with the country and its gastronomy. After travelling for several years studying culinary arts, gastronomy and international development, I decided to return to Bogotá in hopes of reconnecting with my roots and letting people know a bit more about Colombia through its cuisine and culture. My blog, Bogotá Eats & Drinks, was born in 2008 as a hobby and has been growing ever since, attracting a variety of readers from around the world.

After almost a decade working as a Sales Director for a large internet companies in London, I though it was time to have a break and focus for a while on the things I love in life: travelling and learning about other cultures.

With Michael, my partner in crime and travels, we decided to go straight away to Colombia after recommendations from fellow travellers. As soon as we got there, we decided to launch a travel portal to record our Colombian trips and help other travellers willing to explore the country. Off2 Colombia was born and is now the largest independant source of information for travelling in Colombia. I have been in Colombia 2 years now and I am loving every day of my life in my new adopted country.
