Espacio Incubator has acquired Hibiscus & Nomada, a leading travel blog that aims to document the affordable way to discovering the unexplored. Through the acquisition, Espacio aims to promote the publication’s growth and to project a voice for the travel community.
Hibiscus & Nomada was founded in 2016 by Marion Payen and Alex Hurstel. The travel-centric site quickly grew, amassing close to 50,000 Instagram followers with its incredible photos from highlighted destinations all over the world.
Hibiscus & Nomada has been seen on key travel publications like Lonely Planet and City Style & Living.
“We are thrilled to be working with Hibiscus & Nomada and to continue the legacy that Marion created,” said Espacio CEO Conrad Egusa.
Conrad Egusa is a former VentureBeat writer and is a Global Mentor at 500 Startups along with being a co-founder of Espacio with Eddie Arrieta.
Hibiscus & Nomada’s editor will be Mathew Di Salvo, a former newswire journalist who also has experience in travel writing.
“It’s extremely exciting to be taking over this blog, which has amassed an impressive following in its short time,” Di Salvo said. “At Espacio we were blown away by the photos and the variety of locations it featured. Our enthusiastic team is fully up to continuing the great job Marion created.
“We hope to expand the site by reaching even more untouched and beautiful locations and demonstrating that great content can still come out of the somewhat crowded market of travel blogging.”
In addition to its blog, Hibicus & Nomada provides travel Guides to Europe, Asia, Africa & Americas.
Upcoming investments include an expansion of its editorial newsroom, investments into video, and a series of events in 2018.
