Esther Moreno

Executive Manager & Travel Designer

I'm passionate about discovering hidden spots anywhere on the planet where I can practice one of my favorite activities: yoga. Relaxing in a nice spa with ocean views and enjoying a candlelit dinner are some of the best highlights to any of my travels.

About Esther Moreno:

Asia, America and Oceania.
My favourite travel experience:

Bathe in the beautiful waters of the island of Bawah, in the Anambas archipelago.

My unfinished business:

Tour the impressive Chilean Patagonia, in search of the beautiful and elusive native Pumas.
