Born and raised in Cochabamba, Ariel is one of these cultivated and energetic Bolivians who loves his job when it comes to showing off the beauties of his homeland to foreigners.

Since he loves to travel, meet new people and get to know other cultures, since he was a kid he knew he wanted to work in the tourism industry. But he wasn’t specifically looking forward to being a Guide. It was while studying a degree in Tourism that he had his first encounter with this job, when he got an offer from the college director to be the guide for a small group of travelers.

Ariel loved it so much that he decided to become an Official Guide and he’s been doing it for 8 years now with no intention of changing. “Every day, every traveler is different and that’s what makes this work so special”, he says.
During the journeys with travelers he often likes to teach them to dance to Bolivian music!During his free time, Ariel likes to practice sports. He plays soccer and swims, and he also loves extreme sports.
