AvensaTravel was founded by me, Brenda de Groot. I am from Holland and have an educational background in tourism development and have successfully finished the curriculum of project management. After 14 years travelling to Oaxaca and Chiapas, I have established a permanent residence here in Oaxaca. I have worked in conjunction with a Dutch travel agency and guided tours in Oaxaca and Chiapas. Over the years I have fallen completely in love with Oaxaca and its neighboring state of Chiapas and all the nature that lives and breathes in these places. My desire now is to share my passion for these places with my clients and, at the same time, help the local communities where and when I can. I decided that the best way to do this was to open my own travel agency, and AvensaTravel was born!
Hi, my name is Ellen Bergers and I am also from Holland. I have a university degree in cultural anthropology, a career which I chose due to my love for the many different Latin-American cultures. Travel comes naturally in this area of study and this is how I came to visit Oaxaca. I immediately fell in love with this stunning and culturally diverse part of Mexico and decided to move here in 2012. I have been living and working here since. I share Brenda’s passion for Oaxaca, especially its unique and ancient cultures, and I love to share it with all who come here. I’m looking forward to helping you have an experience of a lifetime!
