Lola Mendez Costa Rica

Meet Lola

After calling New York City home for  7 years Lola developed a necessity to become a true citizen of the world and left the States in 2015 and has visited over 60 countries. Wanderlust percolated throughout her life as growing up in an Uruguayan-American family exposed her to travel from a young age. She’s had a passport since birth and made many childhood visits to South America.

Lola is a published travel journalist and has written travel articles for CNN, Lonely Planet, Atlas Obscura, Matador Network, and more. She’s also an essayist with personal narratives published on Explore Parts Unknown, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, Paper Magazine, SheKnows, and others. Check out her published articles.

She’s also a communications specialist with a BBA in Marketing and led a robust career as a fashion publicist in NYC. Lola had the honor of being a panelist at the 2014 Georgetown University Women in Leadership Summit. She’s passionate about spreading awareness about global gender equality.

Lola is dedicated to sustainability in both her personal and professional life. She seeks out ethical experiences that benefit local communities everywhere she goes. Lola’s been plant-based for 13 years


Lola has enjoyed wonderful relationships with various brands through brand ambassadorships, affiliate marketing, sponsored blog and social media posts, social media takeovers, press trips, and other travel partnerships. She’s most interested in collaborating with responsible businesses and those who support local communities. Miss Filatelista offers partners access to a targeted market of traveling millennials who are sustainability conscious and crave authentic recommendations. View her media kit for further information.
