A travel podcast through the eyes of a first-generation Latina!

My name is Bianca Alba and I am so excited to have this platform where I can share stories with you about some of the amazing places I have visited throughout the years! More than that, this podcast is also a way for me to share proof that dreams can become reality. I grew up with three sisters in a single parent home, so for a long time, trips and vacations were just an idea. This podcast has shown me not just how far I’ve come, but how far we can go as Latinas who love to travel.

    This Latina Travels to Punta Cana!

    This Latina Travels to Punta Cana!

    Welcome, listeners! Join me on an exquisite journey as I share the highlights of our luxurious and romantic trip to La Republica Dominicana, specifically Punta Cana – a true haven for all-inclusive resorts. Although I acknowledge there's much more to the Dominican Republic than Punta Cana, this episode dives into MY first-ever experience at an all-inclusive.

    Our accommodations at the stunning Sanctuary, a Marriott Property, added a touch of magic to our getaway. You can find more details about this beautiful resort [here]. 

    Throughout the episode, I'll be unveiling insights from our trip, offering valuable tips, and revealing the secrets to making your dream vacation a reality. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to be a millionaire to indulge in luxury; all it takes is a bit of financial discipline and strategic planning.

    And here's a reminder: if you're enjoying the podcast, please take a moment to leave a 5-star review, especially if you're tuned in on Apple Podcasts. Stay connected with me on Instagram, TikTok, and Youtube for more exciting content.

    This Latina Travels to Canada!

    This Latina Travels to Canada!

    In this episode, I will be talking about the FIRST trip that I was able to take my family on. And that final destination was to…. Canada, specifically the cities of Ontario and Toronto.  Not only was this the FIRST trip that I could financially afford but it was the FIRST trip I was able to use points to get us hotel rooms and use my Diamond status for ALL the perks. Lastly, this was the FIRST trip that didn’t consist of traveling to visit family but to travel to a NEW destination.

    Although Canada may not be everyone's first location of choice to vacation to, I know many will be able to relate to the meaning behind my trip! We really are living our Ancestor's Wildest Dreams!

Love All Things TLT

Bianca is a wonderful person with a good heart. Bianca’s travel stories are a joy to listen to. Especially the Punta Cana episode, which took me back to my honeymoon. It’s why I now prefer all-inclusive resorts. Keep sharing these gems, Bianca! Also you are an inspiration and thank you for sharing your joy with us.

Fell for Egypt too! ♥️

I absolutely loved your episode on Egypt! The Mummy is one of my favorite movies too. While I’ve always wanted to travel there & learn more about the culture, you highlighted some important things to keep in mind that I did not think about - so gracias Amiga! My favorite note you mentioned was about taking a ride on a hot air balloon by the Luxor! That definitely sounds like a must see. Can’t wait to see where you go next!

Aneisycardo ,

Amazing !
