YoPlan in La Vanguardia
Yoplan.com allows you to book activities with local experts in Caribbean tourist destinations.
Yamilet Rivas worked in the tour operator sector. “I was confronted daily with requests from customers who could not be satisfied by traditional travel agencies,” says the CEO and co-founder of Yoplan.com. This reality, together with the upward trend in the tourism market, pushed Rivas and his partner Natacha Escalona to found Yoplan.com in December 2016. The platform allows travelers to connect with residents and book activities with local experts. Raúl Diego Regidor and Alberto Moya joined the business adventure to bring the most technological part of this Barcelona-based start-up.
Yoplan.com specializes in trips to the Caribbean and half of its business comes from a very specific group: women traveling alone or in groups of only women. “Without looking for it, we start to connect with this group, we offer them security and we meet their expectations,” says Rivas. The company has obtained 150,000 euros in financing and is about to open a second round of 75,000 euros.
Yoplan triumphs among the collective of women travelling alone!
