I’m an explorer. Whether it is reading a book, dancing, watching a movie, cooking, or traveling, I love finding new flavors, meeting people, learning, and discovering what surrounds us. Among all of them, I have to say that traveling around Peru is what brings back some of my best memories since I was a kid. Now, I want to share what I found and learn here, showing Peru to the explorers out there looking for the journey of a lifetime.
How did you get involved in travel?
My first trip was when I was very young when my grandparents decided to take me to their hometown, Cajamarca. I was born in Lima, the capital city of Peru, but my whole family comes from this city in the northern Peruvian Andes, and visiting it for the first time felt like home. Although I started traveling at the age of 2, I never thought of making tourism my career. When the chance of studying Sustainable Tourism came up, I found out that traveling could help the sustainable development of our country, and here I am.
Most memorable trip
Anyone that traveled more than once around Peru may say that all their trips are memorable. But, if I had to choose one, I would say it was my first trip to Puerto Maldonado. Some years ago, I got the opportunity to visit the Tambopata National Reserve and stay at a jungle lodge, but not just any, the Tambopata National Reserve. Staying in the middle of the jungle, listening to the nocturnal wildlife, and seeing a jaguar makes it one of the best trips I’ve ever had!
