Henry Villamizar


Henry Villamizar

Originally from Colombia, Henry is a longstanding member of our Ticketing department who has been with the company since 2000, having previously lived in Paris and Bogotá. What he loves most about his home country is the emphasis on dancing, a passion which he shares with many of his countrymen. Henry is a fantastic salsa dancer and enjoys the lively musical atmosphere found across South America.

Apart from Colombia, he rates Brazil as his favourite Latin American destination due to the friendliness of the people, exceptional beaches and delicious traditional cuisine – and of course, the incredible culture of music and dance which pervades the whole country.

My favourite place in Latin America

My favourite places are wherever the musical beat is strongest, so I would have to choose Havana, Carnival in both Rio and Salvador, and Cali, Colombia – the home of salsa.
