        I was born with a passion for the map's blank spaces. Exploring them is where I feel most alive and am filled with the greatest sense of wonder and intrigue for the world around.As Nabokov once said..."nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” Shall we go forth?

            Amaru Bolivia, based out of Cochabamba, Bolivia, provides authentic experiences through sustainable relationships with local communities in Bolivia and neighboring countries.For examples, travelers can canoe to the community of Mapajo deep in the Amazon, and join the Mosetén tribe as they gather medicinal plants in the forests or fish the rivers as they have for centuries. Or visitors can turn quinoa farmers and llama herders for a day (or longer) with a local Quechua family amid the salt flats, smoking volcanoes and geysers of southern Potosí.

              I grew up in Patagonia and spent most of my childhood riding horses, hiking, and camping in far-flung corners of the family estancia. I'm an avid biker,kayaker, runner and skier, annually participates in the most challenging race in Patagonia: Chapelco's Tetrathlon. As the lodge manager of our estancia, I work hand in hand with Santiago Uriburu — our head guide — an expert horseman, passionate about riding, playing polo, and breeding horses. Santiago's passion for horses, wildlife, and nature are positively contagious, and he loves nothing more than providing travellers with the opportunity to experience all these.
