Lucia Cazar

I started to travel, camp, and go on excursions (especially in natural environments) when I was 10 years old - since then I have never stopped. Before I started my studies in Tourism and Hospitality I realized that traveling was something that enriched my soul and filled me with great memories that later I would love to share with more people from all over the world.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, the country where I grew up. Ecuador is a biodiverse country, and the activities that can be carried out are varied such as cultural, adventure, and community tourism, "Ecuador has everything in one place", due to its short distances between one region to another, it can be on the Ecuadorian coast and immediately change to a humid tropical zone as well as to a cold place in the middle of volcanoes."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started traveling when I was a child, then I decided to study Tourism and Hospitality at a university here in Ecuador, then I had the opportunity to travel around Ecuador to its 4 regions as Highlands, Cost, the Ecuadorian Amazon, and the enchanted Galápagos Islands. Since then, my wish has been that people from around the world can discover the wonders of Ecuador, and enrich themselves with the landscapes, biodiversity, culture, and the Enchanted Galapagos Islands, and its unique marine species."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"An experience that I will never forget is when I was able to travel to other countries and I was able to talk about my own country and realize that we have everything here, wonderful tourist places to be shown to the world. I have also been able to travel to other countries to learn about their culture, I have always thought that the best way to exchange cultural experiences has been to meet people who are passionate about their country and to be able to share ideas from one country to another."

Our trip to Ecuador was great. The mainland/Ecuador portion was exactly what we expected it to be. Mindo was a pleasant surprise and loved that portion. The hotel in Quito was wonderful. As for the Galapagos, everything was great except we would have liked for our guide to recommend Los Tuneles in Isabela on the Galapagos. We heard that those were great, but we were not told about those. Otherwise, I would highly recommend everything else we did in the Galapagos. Read more

Lucia answered my endless questions with significant details to make my trip easy to enjoy at EVERY step. Not a single thing went wrong along my trip, from the Galapagos Islands, 2 different types of forests and time for cultural interests as well. I have thousands of images to sort through, and I definitely have some worthy of framing. The memories I have are EPIC! I did and saw things I only dreamed of, and did things I never thought were possible in the natural word with animals- like hand feeding wild hummingbirds!! Ecuador has so much to offer, and is incredibly bio-diverse. I was fortunate that Lucia had been to some of the places and was able to guide me to the right locations like no other. She was excellent!

This was EPIC, a dream come true. There was nothing more exciting than observing the largest tortoises in the world, especially during lunch, what a view!!! My guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about the area, and brought me to the best location to view the Galapagos Tortoises. The tour of the Charles Darwin Station was EXCELLENT. I happened to arrive right at the time of feeding the baby tortoises, and adults too, so they were very active! Just one of many lucky situations for me during my Ecuador trip.
