About Alma

Meet Alma, CEO and Owner of Alma Explores; the spirited globetrotter whose wanderlust ignited as a young child living with her parents in a motorhome, with the Pacific Ocean as her backyard. A Southern California native, she’s touched every continent (well, except for Antarctica and Australia), living and working in vibrant spots like Mexico City, Guadalajara, Tijuana, and the bustling streets of New York City.

Now, Alma’s sharing her travel tales and know-how to curate experiences for the curious explorer in search of adventure and comfort. Fueling her passion is the mission to empower women of color (and of size) to conquer their fears and explore the world, all while proudly showcasing her rich Mexican culture. With a goal to unveil the hidden gems across Mexico’s 32 diverse states, Alma aims to combat overtourism, environmental strain, and media stereotypes. Rooted in a Mexican household where Spanish was the first language and 30 hour road trips to visit her grandparents in Mexico were the norm, Alma’s connection to Mexico is both deep and intimate.

As a first-generation Mexican-American, she’s not only conquered every corner of Mexico, but she has also summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and fallen in love with the wonders of Japan. Alma’s on a mission to challenge stereotypes of what travelers look like, believing that travel is for everybody and every body. Join Alma on this thrilling journey, where the world is your playground, and adventure knows no bounds
