Product and Marketing
Rafe has been with Journey Latin America since 1992, gradually working his way through most of our departments before arriving in Product in 2004. There he oversees our range of holidays within Mexico and Central America, an area full of compact yet diverse countries which he loves for their culture, their dramatic history and for the endearing quirkiness of their traditional festivals. He also loves the musical and gastronomic specialities of the zone, particularly norteño music and the simple street food of Mexico. 

Some of the most memorable moments from Rafe’s extensive travels include sleeping on the deck of a Corumbá-bound boat for three days amidst wild storms, and sighting million-strong clouds of Monarch butterflies emerge from sunlit Mexican treetops. He will also never forget the 3-day walk to Coroíco from La Paz, Bolivia, mainly because 15 minutes from the end of their epic journey he and his friend thumbed a lift on a truck they assumed was headed to their destination and fell asleep, only to awake beside sackloads of mandarins, halfway back up the road to La Paz!

My top tips


Traditionally cooked food, using fresh and often unusual ingredients, can be found on street stalls and in the markets of cities, towns and villages all over Mexico. This can be one of the best ways to experience the country's tastiest and most authentic cuisine.


So you've seen Peru's sights and have one night in Lima before going home – for something a bit different, try ten-pin 'glow bowling' (bowling in the dark with fluorescent bowling balls) in the Larcomar in Miraflores. You won't see other tourists, that's for sure!
