Rachel has over 20 years’ experience in travel; in that time she has visited over 80 countries. Having lived in Peru for many years, Rachel’s knowledge of Latin America is imbued with passion and she is the go-to person for ideas on how to really get off the beaten track.

Rachel’s travels through Latin America have included wildlife viewing in Brazil’s Pantanal, horse riding on a traditional estancia in Argentina, trekking the snow-capped peaks of Peru’s Cordillera Blanca, searching for jaguars in the jungles of Guyana and snaking down the Amazon in a cargo boat.

Standout experience

Witnessing the friendliness of the locals cycling through Myanmar

Top recommendation

Pay a visit to Ciudad Perdida, a place just as mesmerising as Machu Picchu, 600 years older and less known to tourists
