Hola, I’m Davied Espinosa, a 36-year-old Cuban, who love connecting and meeting people from all over the world, I love challenges, sports, travel, experiences, local gastronomy and personal development, so I am always looking for activities in that sense,

But all it started one day in March 2015, When I spent a large part of my savings traveling through Cuba, I discovered that I could do something different from what traditional travel agencies offered me.

So, I mixed everything I like and love to create Viajero Sunrise, a travel and experience program that helps families live unforgettable experiences in Cuba and Seattle.

Why these destinations?

Because they are where I have had the opportunity to live, explore, discover and meet incredible people.

In Viajero Sunrise we have the mission to help families create unforgettable memories and strengthen family bonds through extraordinary trips.
