María José Caro, also known as Majo, believes that travel can foster world peace by giving you the opportunity to be a part of a global community. As a university student, Majo studied finances, government and international relations and received several scholarships to study abroad in Europe. While she was traveling, she wore her Colombia soccer jersey with pride with the hope to change misconceptions of her home country.
When she came back to Colombia, she asked her mom to take her to the Mercado de Paloquemao, where they had done their shopping when she was a child. She immediately realized that she wanted to show travelers the real side of Colombia through the 433 different fruits found in the country, and thus 321 Colombia was born.
In Majo’s words, “travel enriches your spirits, encourages love, promotes education, develops art and makes our economy flow.” Travel as much as you can, discover the world, come back to Colombia and love Bogotá in the authentic way with 321 Colombia!
