I'm a seasoned travel enthusiast with a background in South American tourism. Originally hailing from Lima, I followed my passion by studying tourism and then by working as a naturalist guide in the Peruvian Amazon. Guiding groups through this lush wilderness, I developed a profound appreciation for the beauty and biodiversity of our planet.

My journey didn't end there. For nine years, I led diverse groups of travelers across South America. From the remote Salt flats in Bolivia to the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, I've had the privilege of showcasing the rich cultural heritage and breathtaking natural wonders of this extraordinary continent.

Travel, for me, is more than just a journey—it's a transformative experience that fosters understanding, connection and personal growth. It's my mission to share this passion with others and inspire them to embark on remarkable journeys of discovery.

I invite you to join me in exploring the wonders of South America and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
