What is Travesías?
Travesías is the best means of reaching Latin American travelers with high purchasing power.
Travesías was founded in August 2001 and its slogan from the beginning has been inspiration for travelers. A travel magazine appealing to the intelligent, cultured and traveled reader capable of recognizing a good article and keen to get to know new places.
Producing a travel magazine for experienced travelers is not an easy task. As a result, the challenge for Travesías is to always be at the cutting edge in terms of trends, customs and traditions in order to reveal to its readers the planet’s undiscovered places as well as delicious corners of well-known cities but with a completely novel approach.
For this reason we are absolutely strict about the verification of the information we provide, ensuring that it is up to date. We work with a network of writers, journalists and photographers from all over the world who keep us informed of what is happening in terms of new trends, hotels, exclusive restaurants, urban changes, shopping habits, tours, excursions and transport use. Everything we publish in Travesías has been written by those who have experienced what they describe first-hand. Only in this way can the experience they describe be trustworthy.
Today Travesías is the only Latin American travel magazine with a continental reach. With its three editions (each one with its Spanish adapted to the corresponding region) and 140,000 copies, it reaches all of Spanish-speaking America and is an essential source of reference. Praised for its clean and innovative design, for its combination of useful information, quality texts and stupendous photography, it is a publication to be consulted and collected across the region, by the most traveled and high-profile readers.
We can proudly say, that in our pages the most prestigious Latin American writers and photographers appear or aspire to appear.
Today Travesías is what it always wanted to be: an inspiring magazine. Not only for those who read it, but also for those of us who produce it.
