Ranmali Sanmugam


Ranmali Sanmugam

Since joining the company in 1984, Ranmali has seen Journey Latin America grow from a fledgling business to the UK’s number one specialist in travel to Latin America. A graduate in Geography, Ranmali joined at a time when Latin America was an almost unheard of holiday destination, and she vividly recalls mispronouncing Bogotá in her job interview! Business boomed soon after she joined and what started out as one small box of archives quickly grew to such an extent that at one point she had to keep the overflow in the bath upstairs... 
Ranmali’s favourite countries are unique and beautiful Cuba; Brazil, for the diversity of its people and culture; and Chile – which she describes as one country with the geographical diversity of an entire continent. Amongst her travel highlights are piranha fishing in the Amazon and drinking whiskey chilled with glacier ice in Patagonia. When asked what she loves most about the region, she is unable to pick just one aspect - her reply is: ‘everything!’

My top tips


In Havana, Cuba try and get a ticket to see the Ballet National de Cuba perform at the Grand Theatre of Havana you won’t be disappointed. Cubans are rightly proud of their ballet, and the venue is a wonderful building with a striking interior.
