Travel Consultants
Ben’s love for Latin America was sealed in 1995 during a 6-month backpacking trip from Colombia through Central America and into Mexico. He later lived in Peru for a year as part of his Spanish degree and during this time was able to explore neighbouring Andean countries.

After a few years at an investment bank, Ben decided to pursue his passion for travel with a return trip to Central America. When he joined Journey Latin America in 2002 he was therefore already highly qualified and in the years since his expertise has grown yet further. He is now part of our Senior Management Team and Manager of the Tailor-made Holidays Department.

The highlights of his travels have included the chance sighting of a jaguar in Peru’s Manu National Park; spending a month in hammocks on the beaches of Colombia’s coastal paradise, Tayrona National Park; snorkelling with hammerheads in the Galápagos and seeing five species of Penguin in the Falkland Islands.

My favourite place in Latin America

Every Latin American country has something unique to recommend it, but if I had to single out three favourite countries they would be Colombia, for the welcoming, friendly people and idyllic beaches; Guatemala, for its small, colourful indigenous villages and adventurous feel; and Bolivia, which is stunningly beautiful but still feels quite cut off from the tourist trail.

My top tips


You'll be inspected by curious tropical fish and rays, and in the cloud forests of Costa Rica you'll be serenaded by the sounds of colourful birds claiming their territory... never a dull moment.


When visiting the Amazon, factor in at least one extra change of clothes per day as you’ll often get wet on excursions and the intensely humid conditions mean that nothing properly dries. Choose natural, breathable fabrics in light, neutral shades (bright colours can scare off wildlife and dark colours attract insects).
