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.

Sonia Luque

Agency Account Coordinator
I graduated with a degree in Foreign Trade and Business Administration. Combining my love for travel and passion for customer service, I embarked on a journey into the world of tourism. With a focus on creating unforgettable moments for our passengers, I have had the pleasure of sharing my knowledge and experience with fellow adventurers. Whether it's recommending the perfect destination, providing exceptional service, or simply sharing in the joy of exploring new places, I am committed to making every journey magical.

Franklin Salcedo

Destination Expert
Growing up in several countries and traveling to numerous beautiful tourist destinations ignited my passion for the beauty of nature. As a graduate in Graphic Design, my eye for art, colors, and creativity is finely tuned. With a strong focus on details, I prepare meticulously for every trip to this stunning country, ensuring a seamless and unforgettable experience for our travelers. 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.
