LINSEY RANKIN

Founder and Experience Consultant.

I first discovered and fell in love with the Pacific Coast while visiting the area in 2015. When I returned from my trip,  I couldn ́t stop thinking about the beautiful abandoned beaches, virgin rainforest, warm Pacific waters and kind hearted community.

In 2017 Prana Pacifico was born and we started offering sustainable tourism and retreats, working closely with the local community to offer unique and educational experiences for visitors to the region. 

We are pleased to integrate all of the knowledge and experience acquired during the process of building a life and a business in the region, creating community with its people and appreciating its rich culture, allowing you to discover and share our passion for the Pacific

SILVANA PALACIOS CORTÉS

Content Creator, Photographer & Videographer

I  began collaborating with Prana Pacífico in 2017, accompanying retreats and capturing all the special moments through photos and videos. During this time, I had the opportunity to discover and appreciate the natural beauty of the Colombian Pacific Coast, build relationships with the local people and develop both personally and professionally through the freedom to explore new passions and projects. 

Now I am much more involved in the business and have grown into the role of social media content creator and graphic designer. I have since launched my own project, Light of Yoga, showcasing my yoga photography and I am a yoga instructor in training. 

The Colombian Pacific is truly magical and I am happy to be able to apply my skills to promote, support and share it with you
