I am originally from Mexico City. I discovered my passion for travel when I was a child and my parents used to take me on road trips. I fell in love with Jordan in 2008 when I first came here and, it’s been my home since 2016. I enjoy when my guests experience, as I did, how friendly and kind Jordanians are and how beautiful and special Jordan is.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"All about Jordan. I specialize in tailor-made tours; whether you are looking for history, culture, luxury, local experiences and adventure, I can plan the perfect vacation for you. If you are looking for an authentic local experience; with some hiking, snorkelling, camel and jeep rides in the desert, we are your company!"
How did you get involved in travel?
"I studied Tourism Business Administration and worked as a sales representative at American Airlines for 12 years until I had the opportunity to travel to Jordan for leisure vacation and fell so in love with this country that I decided to move; I know it sounds crazy!
I started working at Jordan Select Tours as a tour consultant and, after five years, I can't imagine doing anything else. The feeling of meeting happy people because they are traveling is just great and being able to relive your experiences with them cannot be considered a job but rather a hobby."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Without a doubt, it has been Petra in Jordan. I will never forget the feeling of walking through the Siq and seeing how the magnificent Treasury appears from the rocks while I was walking. My second unique travel experience would also be in Petra, climbing the 800 stairs to reach the Monastery and have a drink at one of the Bedouin shops while admiring its marvelous façade."
