Jose's story ...

Sea lover, linguist and aficionado of oriental philosophies – Jose started travelling early on…

Jose was born in Venezuela but raised in a small village in southern Italy where he graduated in Economics and Management of Tourism.  At the age of 23, he left for Vietnam and worked for 12 years with prestigious Southeast Asian DMCs covering management roles in customer care, MICE, and general manager for Vietnam. He then jet-setted off to Barcelona to open his own tourism representation company.

Now with Red Elephant Reps, Jose makes good use of his knowledge of the Spanish, Italian and Portuguese markets and the collaborations he made in Asia.

If all that’s not enough to impress you – Jose speaks Spanish, Italian, English and French, and is currently studying Portuguese.

Jose once spent a week in complete silence at a spiritual yoga and detox retreat in Thailand. He emerged reborn…
