Meet the Founder

¡¡Hola!! I’m Vanessa, a fierce and adventurous Dominicana with an incredible passion for travel. This passion started when I first traveled abroad while in college. Something that I never thought would be possible for me having just arrived in the U.S. at 17yrs old.

After grad school, I became an educator, which I’ve been for about 15yrs now. What I enjoyed the most was exposing my high school students to the world beyond the 4 classroom walls. I was able to lead international educational tours for 7yrs to destinations such as China, Greece, Spain, Morroco, Ireland, and many more.

During my travels, I was always yearning to connect with other travelers of my cultural background. I wanted to share my travels sin pena in a safe space. I wanted us to share our journeys, and inspire one another. That’s why I founded Latino World Travelers – a global community created to empower Latinos/x to experience the world and diversify the face of travel.

In my fight to have a voice and be represented in the travel industry, I also created the Latino Travel Fest. My goal was to not only provide a platform to spotlight Latino/x travel content creators, bloggers, influencers, and thought- leaders, but to also educate the community about how they can too make travel part of their life.

I hope my story inspires you to become curious about the world and reach for your dreams.

With insatiable wanderlust,

Vanessa aka la Jefa Aventurera
