Travel Consultants
Chris was born in Lima and lived there until his A Levels. He was fortunate enough to grow up with a blend of cultures and traditions that left him enthralled by Latin America, and which has compelled him to return to the continent of his birth on countless occasions. Unsurprisingly, he picked Latin American Studies as his degree specialisation, and used the opportunity to spend a year studying in Mérida, Mexico. 

Chris joined Journey Latin America in 1986 as a tour leader, a job which took him all over the region. Chris’s knowledge of Latin America is truly encyclopaedic, and any description of his travels would only scratch the surface. However, some of the highlights include traversing the varied scenery of northern Peru on the roof of a truck; spending five days in a motorised canoe fishing in the jungle; and his first forays along the then-undiscovered coastline around Tulum, Mexico.

My favourite place in Latin America

Cusco must be by far my favourite place. Steeped in history, stunning mountain walks, wonderful food, not to mention the buzz of the place.

My top tips


Airlines permit a minimum connection time of as little as 50 minutes - we know through experience that this is unrealistic: there is often a choice to get an earlier flight from the UK to avoid this stress and I would certainly recommend doing so.


• One interesting tip is that, if you decide to stay overnight in Europe and take your connecting flight the following day, you'll actually save a considerable amount in air passenger duty tax as it will only apply to the European part of the journey – the difference could easily pay for your hotel, giving you a more relaxed journey and a bonus night in a European city.
