Why should travelers choose you above other local in-destination experts?

We work with more than 90 rural and indigenous communities around Mexico, Perú and Costa Rica to provide you, as a travel, a local experience where you connect, learn and discover unique and authentic culutres, people and places.

What type of traveler appreciates your adventures?

My adventures are for those who seek to connect with people, cultures, and places. For those that more than getting to know a typical touristic place, are searching to get a local perspective, to discover, experience, learn and connect with new ideas

What is one of your favorite experiences which you’ve been able to build for guests?

I lived in Puerto Escondido during 3 months and there is where I got to experience and get to know the authentic, local and amazing cultures of Oaxaca. From that experience, I decided to build experiences that allow you to connect with people&places

Share the one travel experience that you will never forget

Getting to know the chewing gum process in Sian Kaan, Mexico. This experience reminded me the importance indigenous people have for biodiversity conservation. Here I learned about the tree where chewing gum comes from and process to create it.
