Travel Consultants
Alex is one of the most international members of our team: although English by heritage, the first time she called the UK home was at the age of 18, after spending her childhood between Portugal and Brussels. England of course couldn’t last and she was soon heading to Mexico to study abroad! The country found its way into her heart thanks to its warm and welcoming people and varied array of attractions, from white-sand beaches to ancient ruins – a combination which she believes makes it the perfect destination. 

Alex is a fantastic linguist, speaking Spanish, Portuguese and French. She is also an adventurous cook with an addiction to Mexican food.

My favourite place in Latin America

Salvador da Bahia, Brazil is completely different to the rest of the country, and the perfect place to combine culture, music and relaxation time on the beach at nearby Morro de São Paulo.

My top tips


When in Mexico City, I recommend a visit to hassle-free La Ciudadela Market - prices are listed so there's less haggling, and you can pick up some great bargains on wonderful handicrafts and textiles from all over Mexico. It's especially lively on a weekend when there is often dancing in the square.


Try to be in Salvador da Bahia on a Sunday so that you can see the drumming troupe Olodum in one of their weekly rehearsals.
