After international oriented studies, it was an obvious choice for me to live abroad.
I discovered Peru as a volunteer in Nasca in 2013 and from this time I just wanted to know more about this country. I fell in love with the diversity of its landscapes, food, and culture. I came back to Peru in 2017 to work in an association whose objective was protecting and promoting native cultures in Iquitos in the center of the Amazon forest.
Now, I share the passion that I have for this country by working for Phima Voyages in Chachapoyas.
I think that the key to a successful trip is sharing with guests and locals in order to make their travel to Peru very special.

"I will never forget my first time in Andes mountains where I was lucky to see a superb sunset which lights up this mountain chain from a truck cab. Since this time, I don't get tired of admiring how the sunlight makes Peruvian landscapes even prettier."
Featured trips & expertise
August is the busiest month of the year in the Sacred Valley. With warm, sunny days and crisp evenings, the ideal weather lends itself to enjoying all the attractions Peru has to offer, from admiring Machu Picchu to adventure sports in lesser-known areas of the country.
In seven days, it's easy to combine Machu Picchu with day trips within the Sacred Valley or with a visit to another region like the Amazon Rainforest or Lake Titicaca. Trekkers can conquer part of the Inca Trail plus take a hike to the brilliantly-striped Rainbow Mountain, and culturally-minded travelers who don't mind skipping Machu Picchu can head to the lesser-visited ruins of Northern Peru. Learn more about your options below.
Off-the-radar for most tourists, Northern Peru has its own set of amazing highlights. You can experience Peru's cultural diversity and numerous archaeological sites, given many pre-Inca civilizations settled in the northern regions. Besides culture, you can also enjoy the amazing wildlife, the beautiful flora and fauna, enjoy a hike in the Andes or relax along long stretches of white sandy beach.

A wonderful exploration of Pre Inca sites

I had a fabulous experience exploring the pre Inca archeological sites of northern Peru. Martina from Phima Voyages and Sheila at its Chachapoyas office checked very often if all was going well without being intrusive. They made some minor changes at my request and were very gracious about it. My guides (Jorge in Caral, Julio in Trujillo, Sheila in Chachapoyas ) were exceptionally well informed and great company. As for the drivers all were very prudent and handled bad roads and long... read more
