Marco Larrea

Commercial Manager B2B
I am a proud native of Ecuador with an insatiable passion for exploring the natural beauty and rich cultural diversity of my country and other destinations across South America and the world. My love for travel was sparked at a young age, thanks partly to the sport I practiced and the opportunity to live abroad for a year. Through these experiences, I have discovered countless new cultures and breathtaking locations, which have left a lasting impression on me. In particular, South America is a treasure trove of awe-inspiring natural wonders and diverse cultural traditions waiting to be explored and savored.

Andrea Morales

I was born in Quito and am deeply proud of my Ecuadorian roots. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to hospitality and commerce, specializing in providing exceptional service to others. My passion lies in communicating my profound love for Ecuador's vibrant culture, rich traditions, and breathtaking natural wonders. I find immense joy in sharing this remarkable country's beauty and wonder with people worldwide.

Always eager to take on new challenges and continuously improving my skills, my mindset is focused on providing the best possible tourism services.

María José Ávalos

Destination Expert
I found my passion in Tourism and Hospitality at a young age. All of my trips inside and outside of Ecuador inspired me to pursue a professional degree in Tourism, where I learned the technical and theoretical aspects of the industry. This job allowed me to develop the ability to support clients in different stages of trip planning in an effective way. Usually, when I am not working, you can find me traveling and meeting new places. My favorite destination so far is The Galapagos Islands.
