María Noelia Bonvin

I'm from Córdoba, Argentina and I love traveling. I've been to several countries and really enjoyed getting to know new places and especially amazing people. I'm passionate about travel and I enjoy trying new things - typical food, folk music, sports and adventures - and meeting people.

But most of all, I really love South America. I could write for hours about what my country, Argentina, has to offer to lovers of nature, adventure, authentic experiences, and unforgettable memories. All interwoven with the warmth of the Argentineans themselves, who are gracious and warm-hearted hosts. But I won't. I prefer leaving that to you, as you travel with us, write your journal, upload your photos, live your moments.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We are destination specialists with insider knowledge of each country. We specialize in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Brazil, and Uruguay. We offer integration of travel services to provide a complete, consistent experience - particularly useful for multi-country itineraries featuring the main highlights of South America's Southern Cone."

How did you get involved in travel?

"As a matter of fact, it just happened, it wasn't planned. I always knew I like traveling, but I didn't know I was so passionate about it until a friend saw my potential and invited me to be part of his travel company. Since then, my eagerness and passion for the travel world has never stopped growing. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I find it very difficult to choose one travel experience among all the memories that come to my mind. But probably a unique travel experience I will never forget is an experience I had in Ireland. I was traveling along the West Coast with a friend and we decided to follow a bit of local advice to visit a castle. When we arrived at the castle we were amazed and we were wondering about the castle's history. As we were trying to find out about it, an Irish man greeted us and he started telling us stories about the castle and his life. He turned out to be one of the heirs of the castle owners. Not only did he tell us incredible stories, but also invited us to have tea with him and he showed us family photos of the castle throughout history. I'll always cherish this memory in my heart. "

Thank you very much!
