We are passionate about food and travel, and believe that food is the best way to understand a country, its culture and of course the people. La Mesa Food Tours is an opportunity for us to share this - and so much more - with you.

Come and experience a taste with La Mesa Food Tours!

A former business manager transformed into a wanderer who loves to share the Colombian Culture. I love cultural exchanges and to immerse myself in other places, and for this reason a few years ago I left my work an office and decided to dedicate myself to trips and travelers. Telling, writing and hearing stories fills my soul, and even better if accompanied by a cup of Colombian coffee! In some of my longer trips I've had the opportunity to work in restaurants and get to know a number of talented chefs, which opened the way for me to explore cuisines from other parts of the world. However, I am a fully convinced that the mix of flavors and textures in Latin America are incomparable! You have a friend waiting for you here in Colombia, and I look forward to showing you an amazing experience here in my country.



You have to taste a culture to understand it.

Growing up in a place full of delicious food, friendly people and lots of culture, the town of Envigado has made me who I am today. I love music, making friends, and above all else, food - especially homemade food! I grew up on simple food made by humble people, which can be better than the most sophisticated meal at the fanciest restaurant. I also spent time in Peru (one of the best experiences of my life!), and had the chance to explore a wide variety of new flavors and a different culture than what I knew. My time there was full of incredible ingredients and amazing memories, but it only really made me love the food I grew up with even more. I can't wait to show you my little town, and I really hope you fall in love with the local food, history and people as much as I have.
