Travel Consultants

Carrie left a Public Relations career in 2006 to travel around the world, and became one of the many who do so to fall for Latin America’s allure. So much so that she stayed on in the continent for years, travelling, exploring and working, settling for a while in Buenos Aires and Lima.  Blessed with a truly adventurous spirit, she has an especial fondness for drinking in the views over the wilderness landscapes of Bolivia, savouring the winning combination of steak, wine and football in Argentina, scuba-diving in Honduras and engaging with the warmth and friendliness of the peoples of Colombia and Nicaragua.

Keen to share her experiences with others, she decided that a job as a tour leader was the obvious next step, and she joined our team in 2011. So extensive was her knowledge of Latin America that over the next seven years she led most of our tour itineraries, all the time expanding her understanding of this vast and complex region. In 2019 she decided to re-establish her roots in the UK, and we were thrilled to be able to invite her to join the sales team of Escorted Group Tours. She brings a wealth of anecdotes and wise counsel to the department, along with her innate ability to inspire others with her love for all things Latin American.

My top tips

1.

Be open-minded and positive. Take all things, even the unexpected (power cuts, transport strikes, missing sink plugs or sporadic hot water) in your stride. It is an adventure.

2.

Visit Nicaragua and El Salvador for off-the-beaten track experience with amazing wildlife, smoking volcanoes and incredibly friendly people while they are still relatively undiscovered.

3.

Everyone always plans to but few actually manage to... travel light!
