Joaquin S.

Mendoza, Argentina

I was born in Cordoba, where since ten years ago I was able to venture into mountaineering.

My first steps were in Cordoba's sierras, and from there I went to know the high mountains. Five years ago, I make my dreams come true: I came to Mendoza to became a professional mountain guide to be able to live from what I love. In the past years I get a lot of experience in high mountain, what I like most. For me the mountains are a way of living.

I am also working -two years now- in a foundation dedicated to training in outdoors pre-hospital emergencies.

I really enjoy to share our culture, specially Argentinean cuisine, I really care about the meals in the tours, and they have to be homemade meals, they are much better !

Come to Mendoza, join me, discover the Andes and share this passion, the mountains.

A Recent Review of this guide

Joaquin was absolutely amazing! I was so very lucky to find this hike at the last minute and with such a lovely guide. Joaquin was incredibly flexible and allowed me to schedule a very very early start (the day before) as I had a wedding to attend and was unsure if even be able to hike during my visit. His effervescent personality and the lovely conversation made this the highlight of my trip to Argentina. Joaquin is a lovely person and extremely knowledgeable about the area!
