I grew up in a small countryside town, so ever since I was a child I I’ve had the constant drive to explore different places and meet people from other cultures. In addition, my mother was always a generous hostess and any excuse was valid to enjoy one of her enthusiastically planned gatherings.
Influenced by her spirit, the hospitality industry seemed like the ideal fit for me. I migrated to Buenos Aires to study and spent my first years gaining experience in city hotels. However, my passion for nature led me to work in more rugged destinations, searching for hotels with personalized service.
So, after spending some time working in Brazil, in 2015 I joined the Awasi Patagonia team as Assistant Manager, and finally participated in the opening of Awasi Iguazú in 2018. Today, I am proud to lead a team of talented professionals, making each stay a memorable experience.
I was born in the Corrientes Province, in northeast Argentina, but when I was
just a few days old my family moved to Puerto Iguazú.
My grandfather was one of the founders and pioneers of Puerto Iguazú. Ever
since I was little, I climbed the hills, and swam in the rivers and streams of my
beloved hometown. At this time, the biggest challenge life posed was
swimming in the waterfalls of Iguazú.
In my adult life, I have always worked in tourism and hotels.
One of my favourite pass-times is entering physical competitions, like
Ironman. This is where I learned that with strength and
effort, teamwork and comradeship, you can overcome challenges and complete your goals.
For me, being part of the Awasi family means putting into action these values,
so that the experience of those who visit us is a magical one…
Head of Guides & Excursions
I was born in the city of Eldorado, located about one hour away from Iguazú, and was blessed with a happy childhood with plenty of freedom, and being able to observe how nature determined my family's daily life.
During the weekends my parents would take me and my siblings out into the wild. We would spend our days by the pristine rivers and lakes, swim in their unpolluted waters and explore the green surroundings. This sparked my curiosity and love for nature in general and this part of the world in particular.
For my family, travelling was an important part of life and we would take frequent road trips and camp wherever the journey took us. Those adventures definitely inspired me in my adult life and I strive to pass that spirit on to the people that I work with.
As a guide, I believe it is important to always find the way to surprise our guests; to show them the unexpected secrets that nature and culture reveal and, ultimately, to make the experience moving and unforgettable.
Choose to be a traveller, not a tourist.
Seek the hidden corners, don't follow the crowds.
Follow your desires, not a schedule.
Travel with those you love, avoid big groups.
And have your own...
