Colombian by birth, I spent 23 years of my life in Europe and mainly in Italy where I studied Economy of the Tourism Markets and Systems, specializing in sustainable tourism and territorial promotion focusing on the role of tourism as an economic development factor and in image positioning of countries that are in process of getting out of difficult times, like Colombia. After having worked for more than ten years for hotels, travel agencies and wholesale operators, I decided to return to my origins, to inform myself and to visit Colombia throughout its territory to discover the classic routes and the most unexplored and authentic corners of the country. In 2013 I’ve founded Magical Colombia, a local operator with Colombian soul and an international level organization with the sole porpose to offer excellent services. Now that I live again in Colombia, I dedicate myself to this work with extreme passion and discipline, venturing day after day on the infinite faces and shades of this magic land.

 

Beyond the eyes of the beholder and the reach of the mind, a new journey begins...

Born and raised in Venezuela, I’ve been a lawyer for 15 years, married to a beautiful Colombian woman and with two wonderful daughters and a son.

Since my childhood I was intrigued to know new places through its people so in my teenager years I embarked on the adventure of intercultural exchanges, traveling and having a life experience in Québec, Canada which allowed me to have knowledge of English and French; I traveled abroad and served as host to different people from all over the world, which helped me to have a better view of the world and its cultures.

The circumstances of life itself brought me to Colombia and now i’m focused on helping others to also have the opportunity to discover this beautiful and wonderful country using all the experience gained in my life so far.

 

Don´t be a tourist, be a explorer of new sensations!

From Dutch descent, but living in Colombia for almost two years now, I can say it’s absolutely a fascinating country. When I finished my University in Marketing and Communications and did internships in England and Australia, travelling was all I ever wanted to do. After seeing many places in Europe, I decided it was time for something different: South America. While countries like Peru, Bolivia and Chile impressed me, I found out that Colombia has everything. The huge variety in amazing nature and wildlife, the typical delicious food and the friendliness of the people. This is a place where you can spend a lifetime and still can discover things you didn’t know they were there.

 

Now Magical Colombia has offered me a great chance to show how spectacular this country is and share it with everybody who is looking for their experience of their lives. Also many thanks to my Colombian wife who has made all this possible and supported me from the very beginning.

 

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone
