About Us

 

There's a reason we believe in travel: it's shaped our lives. Every trip is an inspiration, and that's what stands at the center of Travel Pioneers. 


We are a team of two cross-cultural, premium travel consultants, dedicated to designing the journey of a lifetime
for you.

For nearly 10 years we worked alongside each other, until we decided to create Travel Pioneers. The passion and energy we put into our work provides clients with seamless travel coordination for all stages of planning, booking, and enjoying of hand-crafted journeys throughout Latin America.

 
We've discovered that the secret lies in the cultural nuances, and that's why we want you to get the most out of your trip. We are not just planning a vacation, we're creating memories that last a lifetime. 
 

¡Buen viaje!

 
 

Travel Pioneers vision is to inspire travelers and truly make a difference in their lives. We aim to contribute through experience, and by working hand in hand with local communities in Latin America.  Being entrepreneurs ourselves we know how important it is to follow your dreams and passion regardless of the obstacles and what other people, even close friends and family members, may tell you. We support Coffee Kids giving a younger generation the chance, hope and support needed to grow. Plus, we love coffee 😊
