Jack Perez-Haydock

Family ties in Venezuela meant that Jack’s connection to Latin America started early on in life, but his first extensive trip to the continent was in 2014 when he spent six months backpacking through Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. He relished the opportunity to improve his Spanish, learn about diverse cultures and meet new people; he has fond memories of Colombia and describes the people there as the friendliest in South America. Determined to embrace as many experiences as possible, one of Jack’s proudest moments was cycling down ‘Death Road’ in Bolivia and living to tell the tale!

A keen musician, he likes to try his hand at different sounds and whilst in Colombia had a go at learning the charango, a small Andean stringed instrument. He enjoys typical Colombian dancing, such as salsa and bachata and is always on the look-out for a great pisco sour. We love his passion for Latin America and were delighted to welcome him to our Customer Services team.

My favourite place in Latin America

Apart from Colombia, I’d have to say my favourite places are Bolivia and Buenos Aires. I love how remote and off-the-beaten-track Bolivia feels and Buenos Aires is just an incredibly fun and diverse city with something for everybody.

My top tips


Try and learn some Spanish before you go – even a little bit goes a long way and people are very grateful for the effort.


I’d recommend travelling overland wherever possible – if you’ve got the time then it’s a great way to see more of the continent and it gives you a glimpse into everyday life.
