I think by now you know that one of my biggest passions as a content creator is getting behind the lens to shoot and edit films. With so much of the same stale travel content on social media these days, I much prefer video to express myself and jump at the chance to collaborate with brands and destinations who celebrate this art form. Of course I said yes when Barcelo Hotels asked me to be part of this year’s Barcelo Stories campaign. You might remember last year’s trip to Mexico inspired these three short films, but this year I got to discover Costa Rica for the very first time at the Occidental Papagayo. So here we go; the debut of this year’s three films. The first is a dreamy little montage of all the moments that happened at the Occidental Papagayo, the second is a taste of the delicious (and endless) food at the hotel, and the final (my favorite) is a celebration of the Costa Rican motto, Pura Vida.
This year there were 25 content creators from six different countries so make sure to head over to Barcelo Stories to watch all of the videos from some of your favorite travel bloggers including Global Girl Travels, Travel in Her Shoes, Lisa Homsy, AwayLands, Mel Vandersluis, Thiago Correa, The Blonde Vagabond, The Bold Brunette and the super talented Maujl.
