Raised in Peru on a vineyard, Margot naturally has a good nose for wine and the national spirit Pisco. However, her appetite for new cultures and travel brought her to the UK in 2000. Soon after, she joined Journey Latin America and her experience in the Peruvian travel industry and tourism studies have been great assets to the Tailor-made Holidays department.
Margot has travelled most of the continent, but cites her travels in the Galapagos Islands, Brazil, Argentina, Chilean Patagonia and Nicaragua as her most memorable. However, for her each Latin American country is highly individual and has something unique to offer. When it comes to cuisine though, she has no qualms about picking a favourite. Margot, who admits she is a little biased –heartily recommends an array of Peruvian specialities, including ceviche, carapulcra and the zingy pisco sour cocktail.
Passionate about music, she loves dancing to the exotic and varied rhythms originating from all corners of Latin America.
