Since he was a kid, Pablo got a thrill out of sharing the outdoors with others. He began with guiding visitors through the volcanic forests of Pichincha, and knew he would always need to be doing something new and exciting. Having grown up exploring the museums and churches of Ecuador, he returned to downtown Quito to complete his tourism degree amidst the city’s history. While attending university, Pablo began his guide training by cycling, kayaking, and hiking around the region. He’s traveled and guided in Colombia, Peru, and Argentina, but is always up for new challenges and adventures.
