Tourist to Local x Bitácora de Viajero

Meet Juliana and Martín

Juliana and Martín met while working on a cruise ship in 2016. Ever since, this dynamic duo has been documenting their journeys around the globe! With Martín being from Mexico and Juliana being from the USA, their content gives viewers a unique bi-cultural perspective. They create videos in English on “Tourist to Local” and videos in Spanish on “Bitacora de Viajero”. They provide travel tips and city guides to teach viewers how to have unique and memorable vacations.  Travel is attainable, and their goal is to show you how you can travel too, whether it’s for a weekend or a year!
