I started to work in the travel industry while I was doing my career at University. I learned a lot about our local heritage and culture and the importance of tourism for local communities. I did my first steps in big companies and then I moved to Patagonia for an internship where I realized that I loved helping people from all over the world to discover our country.

After 15 years of experience, I still love sharing my knowledge about our culture, traditions, history, nature and the different ways people can discover my beloved country, that is why I founded Designer Trips almost 10 years ago.
I think the key to anything you do is passion and the engine to make people happy when they are traveling.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I can help people with pretty much everything in Argentina but what I love the most are the travel adventures and lifetime experiences. I´m also a big fan of wine and food."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I have a lot of experiences, I remember the first time I walked on the Perito Moreno Glacier, I couldn´t believe how small I felt in such an immensity area! Or my first visit to the Iguazu Falls where I felt the strength of nature, I couldn´t believe how much water passed through those falls. The noise was incredible!

The past months I visited the Lake District and after a private navigation in a yacht through the Nahuel Huapi Lake, I arrived to an Island where a chef was cooking a very special meal for us and the table was set with wine in an amazing spot, The best meal ever with the most stunning views in the middle of nowhere.

I have many many memories of all the trips I´ve done in the last years and I´m ready to share those experiences with people that are looking for some advice to visit Argentina."
