Your Host

For those you may not know me much just yet. Hola 👋🏼 I’m Flavia, a First Gen Peruvian American solo traveler  and the travel blogger ( behind Latina Traveler. My travels and tips focus on unique experiences, secondary cities, and immersing myself in the culture all from the perspective of a Latina. So far I’ve traveled to over 37 countries and have lived in six.

For a while now it’s been mi sueño (my dream) to travel with my community as well as other like minded travelers. And that’s why I invite you to travel with me! We’ll be exploring the best of Morocco while learning as much as we can about the culture and trying all the food! During this time we’ll also get to know each other and everyone in the group to leave with new amigas and a whole new network.

Can’t wait to see you in Brazil! 😍
