Dom Billins

Dom spent 4 months backpacking and volunteering in South America, becoming fascinated by the constantly changing and sometimes divisive political landscape. He holds a degree in International Politics.

Travel Consultants
Dom first visited Latin America as a child on a family holiday to Costa Rica where he was introduced to the country’s enthralling nature. His early passion for Latin America was later cemented over the course of his degree in International Politics as he focused on the continent’s politics and became fascinated by its ever-changing political terrain.

After university, Dom quickly extended a two-month backpacking trip in South America, now hooked on its landscapes and people. Dom’s subsequent travels have taken him all over Latin America with Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru and Bolivia particularly standing out to him. One of his fondest memories is of volunteering with an animal rescue charity in the Bolivian jungle, where he befriended a baby monkey called Dominita who would wait for him every morning for a hug and some papaya!

His deep interest in the charity sector has continued and he volunteers for the LATA Foundation, which supports NGOs all over Latin America.

My favourite place in Latin America

I would have to say Bolivia simply because of the diversity of its landscapes. With desert in the south, wetlands in the east, mountains in the west and the Amazon in the north, it offers a little bit of everything (except a coastline!).

My top tips


Head to the seemingly endless and picturesque coastline of southern Brazil for some delicious grilled prawns and a refreshing caipirinha.


With a wonderful array of fantastic colours and smells, a trip to the bustling fish market in Santiago de Chile is a must. There is a good selection of seafood restaurants here where you can pick up some tasty ceviche at a reasonable price.


If you are after a laid-back experience head to the remote beaches on the southern end of Florianopolis in Brazil, such as Lagoinha do Leste, which is accessed by a path over the mountains – you may well be the only ones there!
