I was born and raised in Lima, Peru and have a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management. After graduating, I worked for an international tour operator – first in Operations and then as a Tour Leader, guiding groups during their trips in South America. After moving to the UK, I wanted to continue to share my passion for my home continent and I am proud to do so in Latin Routes.
I am grateful that my previous positions allowed me to travel extensively in my home country – Peru - but also in the neighbouring regions, on top of my personal travels. I have visited all types of wonders in Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Costa Rica, and Brazil – from natural wonders to cultural sites, I have guided people to discover local gastronomy and hidden gems, and I have enjoyed the beaches and hiked the Andes.
Latin America has a lot to offer, and I never get tired of discovering more. My next travel plan would be to visit Patagonia – hopefully, next year.
My favourite experience is without a doubt trekking the Peruvian Andes. The landscape is breathtaking and there is a sense of peacefulness and feeling connected to these impressive mountains – on top of walking in the steps of the Incas and all the other Pre-Columbian civilisations that have climbed these mountains for millennia. The memories of watching the stars and then witnessing the sunset with a good cup of tea are forever engraved in my mind – quite mystic and I definitely recommend anyone to do it. Though be prepared for all weather in one day and don’t forget to take time to acclimatise to the high altitude before starting walking.

Positive Mental Attitude will bring you a long way, we are here to organise your holidays so just enjoy and try to immerse yourself as much as possible in the local culture – it can be from eating local food to talking to locals and discovering the traditions of the region.
