Mariano Galindo

I was born in Argentina, and my childhood dream was to travel the world and I have been doing so from a young age, traveling all five continents in search of adventure, new cultures and diving sites (my main passion). I have studied tourism, yoga teacher and also dive instructor. I have lived in Spain and Thailand for a few years before returning to Argentina with the purpose of making Argentina known to travelers worldwide.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I'm a specialist in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Bolivia. I organize adventure trips, but also classic tours and luxury trips including exploration Cruises in Antartica and Chilean Fjords. I organize hiking trips, and adventure activities such kayaking, biking."

How did you get involved in travel?

"When I was 19 years old, I took a sabbatical and move to Mallorca in Spain, where I worked for a few months in order to save some money to do a three-month driving trip through Europe. Since then, I never stopped traveling."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"At the age of 28, I traveled for one year through India and Southasia with two of my brothers and my best friend. It was an amazing experience, where we had the chance to travel through India for two months, staying with locals and know their culture and amazing landscapes. We had the chance to do a lot of hiking, kayaking, biking and the best Diving ever! This was a unique experience I will never forget!"
