After an early experience working on a documentary about the Huaorani people, Juan Fernando found his passion in helping travellers get to know the wonders of his country. He studied ecology and tourism in Quito, as well as quality management during a year-long exchange in Germany. Juan Fernando has over twelve years of guiding experience, and has also worked in sales and operations. He speaks fluent Spanish, English, and German.
Juan Fernando has travelled and guided in every corner of the country, but his favourite spot is his rural cabin on the slopes of Volcan Tungurahua, where he goes to get away from it all. He is known as a people person and is able to lead all kinds of individuals and groups, from endurance athletes to grandparents, on an unforgettable journey. Juan Fernando loves plants and birds, but what he loves most is sharing his passion for nature with inquisitive and active travellers.
