Meet Lourdes, our karaoke queen. Grab the mic and try to keep time; her favorites range from American classics to Ecuadorian pop. Pop diva aside, Lourdes is a diehard fútbol fan and big-time baker. When she’s not out belting Adele, you can find her in the kitchen, whipping up a batch of dulce de leche or chocolate con queso. Oye escucha, this is not your run-of-the-mill chocolate. We’re talking straight-from-the-source cacao, as this region humbly brags to be home of the original bean. How’s that for enticing?! A veteran in the industry, Lourdes has been crafting tailor-made trips since she was 18 and now has an impressive history of FOMO-inducing trips under her belt. Lourdes’ agency itself is a multi award-winning travel outfit, owning eco-friendly boutique properties across Ecuador and the Galapagos, and is internationally renowned for its transformational and purpose-driven tours. Count us in!
