Alfredo Meneses

Our lead guide and Chief Exploratory Officer began his career at 19, working as a Mountain Travel Sobek tour guide on South American circuits. Since then, he has gained valuable experience working for several other leading adventure operators.

An impossibly likeable character, his guests respond to his charisma, sympathy, and sensitivity. Alfredo has been everywhere in Ecuador and seems to know everyone, even when you think that you are in a forgotten town or uncharted region of the rainforest. With vast knowledge of biology and natural history, he has extensive rainforest experience. He is a kayak instructor and has kayaked in America, Africa and Europe, completing over 50 river descents. If you ever sit at a dinner table with him, you’ll forget you’re a client and immediately feel like his old friend.
