Hi! I'm Diego. I-m born and raised in Santiago and I'm a born traveler, father of a baby boy and music aficionado. I have cycled more than 5 thousand kilometers along Chile in Atacama, Carretera austral, Valle del elqui, Cajón del maipo and also parts of Argentina. I've also done several hikes in Chile as well, so I can give lots of recomendations for those who are looking for outdoor adventures. I did my whole college training in Vaparaíso where I also became a tour guide for cruise passangers. I gave lessons of English as a foereign language in a remote school into the andes for 5 years, until my life changed when I became a father 3 years ago . That's when I decided to take apply my teaching skills towards sharing all my experiences in this country to all the visitors that have come to enjoy our wonders!
