Atacama

Hannah spent a number of years in Colombia as a child, and has also lived in Brazil, where she worked in tourism, and in Costa Rica, volunteering at a centre for local children. She speaks Spanish and Portuguese and studied both languages as part of her degree in Latin American Studies.

Hannah particularly loves the landscape of Chile, the people of Colombia and the variety and vibrancy of Brazil. She enjoys being active and has hiked both the Salkantay and Lares trek in Peru, been white water rafting on the Pacuare River in Costa Rica and went horse riding across the sand dunes in the Atacama Desert.

Having worked at Journey Latin America for several years and acquired yet more travel experience to add to her sales and interpersonal skills, proving to be a valued member of our Tailor-made holiday department. She has since moved across to our Group Tours team and is proving to be equally invaluable in this role.

Very knowledgeable. Listened well to what we were looking for in our trip and met our requirements perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble.Very professional, always a pleasure to speak to.

What Is Your Favourite...

Place:

The Atacama Desert as it’s unlike anywhere else. The scenery is stunning and there is so much to do, spotting flamingos in the lagoons, visiting the geysers before sunrise, horse riding along the sand dunes, and of course it’s one of the best places in the world to see the stars.

Hotel

Explora Patagonia for it’s incredible location right in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park and the array of treks and horse rides that they offer with some of the best guides in the area. After a day of exploring they offer fabulous food in their restaurant.

Excursion

Hiking along the Weavers Trail in Peru. I felt privileged to trek in the beautiful remote mountains and then waking up with the local children waiting outside my tent to see me!

Top Travel Tip:

Be brave and try some of the more unusual local dishes, they are normally popular for a good reason!

Ceviche

Top Packing Tip:

Always take swimwear! Even if you’re not expecting to swim there are always opportunities to take a dip whether it’s in hot springs, a glacial lake, or a cenote you’ll regret not having the right gear!
