Travel Consultants
Nicola’s first experience of Latin America was during her gap year when she volunteered for three months in Cusco before backpacking around Chile, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador. She cites Cusco as her favourite place in Latin America as it was here that she fell in love with the continent; she found the region’s history and indigenous cultures fascinating and went on to read Latin American Studies at university.

As part of her degree, Nicola spent one year in Bogota teaching English and used the city as a launching pad for trips around Colombia. Her travels took her to the laid-back Caribbean coast with its stunning beaches, to the colonial town of Barichara with its cobbled streets and to the vibrant cities of Medellin and Cali where she could indulge in a favourite past-time: salsa dancing.

Back home, Nicola decided to find a job where she could share her experiences of Latin America and we happily welcomed her to our Groups Department.

My favourite place in Latin America

One of my favourite places in Latin America is the little village of Minca up in Colombia's Sierra Nevada. I love its laid-back atmosphere and it is a great place for watching exotic birds such as hummingbirds, toucans and golden orioles, as well as sampling delicious organic coffee from local fincas.

My top tips

1.

Make the most of the friendliness of the people and get practising your Spanish, this way you will get more out of the experience and get great tips on places to visit and where and what to eat out.

2.

If you love markets then ensure you find out about local artisan and flea markets to have some fun haggling and bring back some fantastic souvenirs.
