ANA INES FIGUEROA
Founder & Explorer
She designs unique itineraries and travel experiences. Her close to 20-years working as a guide and trip planner for some of the best travel companies in the world, led to serious destination exploration. Today she uses this knowledge to create original trips that, at the same time, comply with international quality and safety standards.
She combines her academic training in sustainable development and tourism management with years in-the-field, and works as a guide trainer and consultant in sustainable tourism product development, having worked in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Panama, Colombia and Jordan.
As a speaker at tourism events in the UK, Morocco, Mexico and Argentina, she shared her views on the relationship between local communities, conservation and tourism. She wrote, in English and Spanish, four books about north western Argentina, its people, and the stories that bring them together.
