Zacarias De Ugarte
Zac was born in Cusco and comes from a family of guides and kayak champions; his father was one of the first kayak guides in Peru and his brother was a pioneer kayaker, descending rivers throughout the Americas, and representing Peru at the highest level.
Zac lives with his wife in Cusco who is also involved in adventure travel, operating hiking trips on the Lares Trek. They have five children and their love and passion for exploring Peru is infectious! Zac has a wealth of experience, having guided trips around South America for more than 15 years.
"Zac was awesome. Indefatigable, attentive to every need, good spirited (even when obviously tired after a lo-o-o-ng day). And extremely well-connected--it got to the point where we joked that Zac didn't go more than 15 minutes without greeting someone he knew."Andy Zipser (Mint Spring, Virginia, United States) January 2015
"Zac was amazing and I cannot fault him. He has to be one of the best trip leaders I have had the pleasure of traveling with."Vanessa Muellner (Botany, New South Wales, Australia) December 2014
