Andres was born and raised in Quito, although with his blue eyes and perfect English many don't believe it. With over 25 years of guiding experience and a degree in Biology, Andres is one of our most seasoned and knowledgeable guides. He loves to share detailed information about natural history, geology, botany, and evolutionary biology, and is a great match for those who are especially interested in these topics.
Andres is also an avid mountain biker and hiker, and when he’s not guiding or hanging out with his wife and daughter, you can find him speeding along the trails around Quito. Andres leads nature, culture, and multi-sport tours across the mainland and the Galapagos. He has travelled all over the Americas, and his favourite part of guiding with The STC is sharing the history and beauty of such a huge variety of destinations.
