Gustavo Martinez

South America Trip Leader

gustavo martinez

Gustavo was born in Lima, the capital of Peru. But somehow he's known ever since he was a kid that his soul belongs in the countryside. Gus says: "My grandfather was a very enthusiastic hiker of the highest peaks around the Central Andes until his last days, that's why I think my passion for hiking, trekking and the outdoors is in my genes." Gus lived in Sydney, Australia for two years, where he travelled around and met people from all over the world. "I literally lived in a house with guys from five continents. There I learned how rich and unique the human cultures are, but in the end we are all beings trying to discover life! Thanks 'Straya!' " Tavo, as he is also known, found out that meeting different people while hiking and trekking matched the role of being a guide - so here he is!
