Operations
Before joining Journey Latin America in 1994, Spaniard Antonio had never been to South or Central America, but was strongly attracted by their vibrant cultures and tangible sense of history. Of course, he has since taken the opportunity to travel extensively in the region, counting Peru, Brazil, Mexico and Guatemala amongst his favourite of its countries. During that time he has been lucky – or unlucky – enough to have had a few close encounters with native wildlife including tarantulas and thieving coatis; but he has also had the chance to witness magnificent sunrises in stunning locations like Tikal and Machu Picchu. 

Antonio takes a great interest in psychological research, which he pursued at degree level and later with a Masters and Chartership in Occupational Psychology. Alongside his experience in the travel industry, this has given him the ideal platform for his role as the company’s primary recruiter. He gains great satisfaction from the process of selecting new colleagues and training them to make the most of their extensive ground knowledge and customer service skills.
