Born and raised in Quito, Ecuador, Alex Paz is our new Galapagos Sales & Operations Support team member, however, she’s not new to travel. She’s been in the business for two decades now, having spent years working for Galapagos cruise ship companies, many of whom worked closely with Southern Explorations.
South Americans are natural storytellers no matter how far back you go. And they’ve told their stories in all kinds of ways. Through music and dance. Literature and film. Rock carvings and architecture. Even through the things left behind long ago.
If you’ve done the hike up to Machu Picchu, you’ve no doubt stood there marveling at the UNESCO World Heritage Site while also asking yourself the question that begs to be asked: Why on earth did the Inca build their masterpiece all the way up here?
The Amazon rainforest and river has long been a fascinating, mysterious destination for travelers, scientists and dreamers alike. Spanning more than 2.1 million acres and spilling over the borders of several South American countries, it is the largest tropical rainforest in the world.
We are excited to announce that we have added a new trip to our collection with the introduction of our 10-day Ecuador & Galapagos Family Adventure. With kayaking, snorkeling, trekking, biking, zip lining, volcano hikes and wildlife viewing all on the itinerary, there’s no shortage of adventure for every one of every age.
