The Colombia Travel Blog is the only travel blog you’ll need to plan your visit to Colombia – our team of international travellers are passionate about showing off the magic and diversity of Colombia to the world. We’ve explored the whole of this country to bring you the best and most widely read blog about travelling and living in Colombia, and our hard work (and lot’s of fun too!) has been recognized with many awards including a Bloggie for being the Best Blog in Latin America and being named by FITUR as the best blog in Colombia.
Colombia Travel Blog fue fundado por Marcela Mariscal con la idea de mostrar la belleza y diversidad de Colombia al mundo. Los viajeros internacionales que forman nuestro equipo de trabajo se dedican a contar las mejores historias y consejos para viajar y vivir en Colombia, mientras Marcela junto a su esposo JL Pastor y su hija Maria del Mar descubren destinos internacionales, juntos, como pareja, como familia y en grupo 3 Travel Bloggers, su programa de viajes. Nuestra dedicación y trabajo ha sido reconocido con muchos premios como el Bloggie por ser el mejor blog en Latinoamérica y fuimos nombrados como el mejor blog en Colombia por FITUR.
Meet the team…
Marcela is the one that started this journey over 5 years ago. She noticed that information regarding traveling and living in Colombia was scarce and started the Colombia Travel Blog for all information travellers needed in one place. Now she is also travelling internationally together with her husband JL and their daughter Maria del Mar thanks to her award-winning blog.
A veritable citizen of the world, JL was brought up in several different cities, has travelled all over the world and speaks a variety of languages. Having spent over a decade in the travel industry, JL shares with us his expert insights into the travel industry, as well as accounts of his travels around the globe.
Chris is the editor and main contributor to the Colombia Travel Blog, and has travelled more extensively around Colombia than almost anyone you’re likely to meet. Having travelled to 30 of Colombia’s 32 departments, and being named by El Espectador newspaper as “the Englishman who can teach us to travel in Colombia,” you couldn’t find a better source of information for all your Colombia travel needs. When he’s not blogging about Colombia he can be found either playing tejo, trying to see as many Colombian bird species as possible (800 and counting…) or drinking coffee.
Anna is the newest member of the Colombia Travel Blog team. She is from Austria but has been living in Medellín for more than a year and has adapted herself very well to the Paisa culture, which makes us laugh every once in a while at the office. When she’s not at the office translating posts or coordinating social media content for Marce’s and JL’s travels, she loves to travel to Antioquia’s beautiful and lesser known pueblos to write her own posts.
