About Antonio (your host at ChapinorteBogotá):
Originally from Granada, Spain—Antonio has traveled and lived throughout Europe and the Americas.
Following 2 years in the UK and 5 years in the USA, Antonio returned to Spain where he opened his first hostel (in Madrid—[Link Removed] in 2000.
By 2005, the traveling bug once again took hold, and he ventured off to various countries in South America. From Argentina, his travels through Uruguay and Brazil were delayed by a 6-month stint working at a local hostel near the amazing Iguazu Falls (Argentina/Brazil border).
Continuing north (through Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia), he once again settled into a new location—Caracas, Venezuela—for a few months. From Venezuela, Antonio returned to live in the amazing country of COLOMBIA—where he opened ChapinorteBogota in 2007.
WHY COLOMBIA? Because it is an affordable country with amazing places and wonderful people.. My last proyect, discover more destinations around colombia, and create a hostel/hotel network where travelers can book online if they decide to visit those new destinations.
