Louise Mumford


Inspired by her Mexican godmother, Louise was intrigued by Latin America at an early age, from its music and its flavours, to its history.

After spending some time living in France, her wanderlust was put on hold for a few years due to the demands of a busy career in London. Finally, at a more advanced age than some, she took herself off for a gap year to the Latin continent in search of high mountain peaks and alpacas. This ignited – some 13 years ago – an enduring passion for this diverse and colourful continent and the Latino love of life.

Louise’s personal favourites:

Ask Louise to choose between city, desert, jungle, ocean or mountains, and she finds it hard to opt for one over another – although at a pinch, mountains would probably just clinch it.

Not that Latin America has a shortage of unforgettable things to offer on any of the above fronts. From spotting pink river dolphins in the Amazon, to watching iguanas and sea lions in the Galápagos.

From sampling the Peruvian delicacy of guinea pig, to attempting the tango in Buenos Aires or being serenaded by mariachi in Veracruz; from sipping maracuya caipirinhas on Copacabana beach while listening to a local samba band, to spotting jabiru storks and kingfishers at sunrise in Corriente; or even voyaging to the White Continent and taking a dip in the Antarctic Ocean. Louise has a wealth of treasured Latin American experiences that she loves to share.

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million
