JUAN MUNOZ

CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA

DESTINATION SPECIALIST

I was lucky to grow up in a hacienda south of Quito. I used to wake up early in the morning (3am) to milk the cows, talk to horses, and make breakfast for my mom. My father used to take me to the volcanoes where he worked as a tour guide showcasing the wonders of Ecuador. Since that moment I realized that tourism would be my way of life. I really enjoy going to museums, learning about cultures, and trying new food. I'm a huge soccer fan —I mean, I sometimes cry when watching a game. I have a degree in Tourism Administration, a diploma in Business and Marketing, and a South American sommelier certification. I really enjoying doing what I am doing. Every person deserves a happy memory and every family needs happy experiencies to thrive. Helping people discover South America makes me feel awesome.

My favourite places

  • Amazon Rainforest

    Central & South America

    The Amazon is heaven on earth. Perhaps this is because it is the lungs of the planet. Swimming with pink dolphins and piranas is amazing. Rivers run like veins feeding the fresh water of thousands of plants, animals, and several Indigenous tribes. It certainly is a mircale in biodiversity.

  • Galapagos Islands

    Central & South America

    I really enjoy the connection with the wildlife. It is like a 3D movie with no screen in between. Sea lions are the first to welcome you to the Galapagos Islands. The landscape is therapy. The food is really good and fresh. People are so friendly and unique. "Welcome to the expedition."

  • Machu Picchu

    Central & South America

    Machu Picchu is quite something to behold. It's smaller than you think in places, but it takes longer to explore than you might expect. It's hard to describe the experience of visiting Machu Picchu. Visitors like to call it "breathtaking." The Inca rail experience is beyond comfortable.

  • Bolivian Salt Flats

    Central & South America

    The salt plains of Bolivia are so flat and expansive, it really does feel like you are walking on water. The top metres of the flats are covered by a salt crust, which gives the appearance that any person crossing the flats is walking on water. Visting Inca Huasi or Casa del Inca is a nice spot to enjoy the view.

Did you know?

  • The country of Bolivia has no sea, but it has a navy that operates on Lake Titicaca, which has 5.000 members
  • The island of Baltra in the Galapagos was a US military base during World War II. It is now an airport.
  • Ecuador is about two times larger than NY, but has the Amazon, the Pacific, highlands, and Galapagos Islands.
  • You can find more species in one hectare of the Amazon Rainforest than on the entire European continent.
