Creating unforgettable experiences
Marly Camino is a local Spanish company based in Madrid, formed by a dedicated group of passionate, high-quality, professional human beings that are in love with our home. For over 10 years, we have been taking small groups off the beaten path to discover our favorite natural and cultural gems, along with the Camino de Santiago, and many other spectacular walking routes in Spain and Portugal.
Among our most valuable assets are the hospitality and the personal treatment you will receive. We carefully curate every part of your journey, to make it a truly ‘Marly’ quality experience. We take care of you with warmth and professionalism, because our pilgrims are our most valuable asset. With us, you are like family. We take care of every detail, so you don’t have to worry about a thing and can fully enjoy everything the route has to offer. We want to help you make the most of your time here and with us!
We believe in creating life experiences. And we believe this is much more than just a walk. We guarantee our carefully curated routes, our direct and personal treatment and our attention to detail will make each one of our ‘Caminos’ are unforgettable. We respect and value everyone’s reasons for wanting to do the walk, and give you all the support so that each person finds what he or she is looking for. And hopefully even a little more than that.
We take pride in our quality service, our exclusive routes and, our very happy pilgrims that have helped us become the top-rated agency we are today. Thank you, we hope to see you soon!

Our Founder Marly
Our founder's name is Ligia Margarita Muci Ramos but she is known to her family and friends as Marly. She did her first Camino in April 2004 while she was living in the United States. Her pilgrimage meant so much to her and helped her so much that she did not think twice about giving her life a change and moving to Madrid in October that very year. In 2006 she founded her first company, originally called "Marly Tours" where she initially offered just one Camino de Santiago tour per year. Since the company specialized only on the Camino de Santiago and walks through the peninsula, now Marly Camino.
“My first Camino was in March 2004. I was looking to change my life somehow. The Camino de Santiago experience helped me get through a difficult, stormy stage of my life. I succeeded in letting go of many things and the best part is that I managed to liberate myself from wanting to control everything. The Camino was truly a great lesson for me. It’s an experience that is timeless, it accompanies us throughout our lives.”
Our Essence & the Team
For Marly, the Camino was something that marked a before and after in her life. This is why she wishes to transmit the virtues that the Camino offers us through Marly Camino so that pilgrims have a Camino experience that is as transformational to them as it was for her.
Her deepest wish is to offer the opportunity of living this internal journey and show that, if we are willing and have an open heart, we can achieve major changes in our lives. From the inception of Marly Camino, she has made every effort to achieve this.
With the invaluable help of her daughter Samantha, Marly Camino has created an amazing team that continues to grow and develop into a beautiful project that shows a different way of sharing the experiences that are lived on the Camino and everything it has to offer: a search within, an inner joy and a school of life. Every person on our team reflects our kindness, humanity, and passion for everything we do.
