Tour Leaders
Carolyn left her Public Relations career in 2006 to travel around the world, and fell for Latin America’s allure where she now lives semi-permanently. As a result of turning her passions into paid work she is constantly motivated, inspired and enthused by the tours she leads. In particular she loves the breathtakingly beautiful views in Bolivia, the winning combination of steak, football and wine in Argentina, and the warmth and friendless of the people in Colombia and Nicaragua – which combine to form this irresistible continent.

In between tours, Carolyn, a keen diver is off exploring new parts of Latin America, above and below the water. She is a firm believer in the tours being an adventure, and through her optimism, expertise and charming sense of humour you’ll be sure to have a memorable time.

My top tips


Be open-minded and positive. Take all things, even the unexpected (power cuts, transport strikes, missing sink plugs or sporadic hot water) in your stride. It is an adventure.


Visit Nicaragua and El Salvador for off-the-beaten track experience with amazing wildlife, smoking volcanoes and incredibly friendly people while they are still relatively undiscovered.


Everyone always plans to but few actually manage to... travel light!
