Advisor - Marco David Castaneda


Addicted to novel cultural experiences. California-based, digital nomad who likes to travel by being embedded within an environment and community.

Home airports

SAN for ease and bliss, LAX for across the world.

My travel style

I love to embed myself within a community or environment. I prefer longer vacations so that I can get a localized and insider perspective on boutique and novel travel experiences. I prefer charm over luxury and value authentic, heard-it-through-the-grapevine tips.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Island hopping in Greece.

  • Caravaggio hunting in Rome.

  • Art gallery touring in LA.

  • Searching for the perfect taco in California.

Dreaming of:

  • Horseback riding in Argentine Wine Country.

  • Boat tour on the Nile.

  • Sushi tasting in Japan.

  • Camel ride in Morocco.

One thing I can't travel without...

My notebook of recommendations!

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I filmed a horror movie in a haunted castle in Germany.

  2. My five day trip to Rome turned into a month-long exploration of art and food.

  3. I went to Mexico to learn underwater basket-weaving.
