Sebastián V.

Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador

Hello my dear future friend, my name is Sebastián, and I'm a naturalist national guide of this little but diverse country of Ecuador.

I grew up in different little towns of the countryside due to my father's job, and my paternal family who had a farm full of animals, crops, forest and rivers. Perhaps this close and early contact with Nature, plus my curiosity to understand how things work, were the main reasons to have fallen in love with the natural world, and eventually share this admiration for Nature and try to spark some awareness on our global problems as a guide.

After finishing my University degree in Ecotourism I have gotten the chance of working for some of the most prestigious lodges of Ecuador as: Kapawi Lodge (2 years), Sacha Lodge (3 years), Mashpi Lodge (3 years) and La Selva Lodge. I also have been involved with different biology research projects on mammals, toads and birds around the country.

At the moment, I am about to start my ninth semester in Environmental Management at distance while working as a driver guide and tour leader around the country. Sometimes I am a traveler, sometimes a photographer, not often enough a diver, but always a nature lover, . . . come with me to show you the wonders of Ecuador.
