Juan Diego Rangel Mantilla
👋Hola! I'm Juan Diego Rangel, a passionate trip leader specializing in etnotourism, community tourism and adventure trips.
In 2015, I came to Santa Marta for some vacation. During my first month off, a good friend told me the local guides at the Lost City needed translators for their international travelers. I took advantage to make one my dreams came true without knowing that a whole dream life was about to start.🤯 Some months later, I became one of the local Lost City Trek guides; the greatest honor I've had, and then, a couple of years later, after visiting Perú 🇵🇪, I started traveling all around Colombia and Ecuador with trip mates from all over the world. 🌎✈️ I came to Rio Ancho, la Guajira with the conviction of getting started with the fair community and etnotourism initiatives I learned after working with the local communities I visited with Travelers, and most importantly, living in the Sierra and raising my children with all the richness and plenitude you can find here, in the heart of the world. The Kogi oral tradition and the magic of the Sierra have been transforming my life into happiness for 8 years. From here, I'll take you to the most beautiful places of Colombia, South America, and the world!
