Founder / Guide
My name is Pablo and I was born in the Colca Canyon Valley where I grew up speaking the local language, Quechua. I studied tourism in Arequipa in a local institute and have worked as a tourist guide for about 10 years throughout different areas of Peru. I started guiding in my home, the Colca Canyon Valley, as a young man. Since, I have guided in Cusco, Machu Picchu, and Lago Titicaca. My specialty is working as a trekking guide in the mountains to share customs and knowledge of the small Andean communities of the Peruvian sierra.
I am inspired by eco-friendly, homestay tourism for several reasons. One being that this class of tourism benefits the small, local communities of Peru, which are often underrepresented. I founded Peru Baby Lama with the intentions of sharing these more authentic homestay experiences with tourists.
Founder / Guide
My name is Yudy and I was born in a small community inside the Colca Canyon, called San Juan de Chuccho. I grew up on my family´s small farm until I was 11-years-old. I then went to live with my uncle in Lima in order to have more educational opportunities. I returned to Arequipa to study tourism and began working as a trekking guide in the Colca Canyon. After five years, I began guiding throughout Peru and Bolivia. I have also had the opportunity to see the world via my work for three years on board a cruise ship.
Here in Arequipa, Pablo and I founded Peru Baby Lama with the hopes of sharing our beautiful country and culture with travelers from all over the world. Specifically, we work to share authentic experiences giving travelers the opportunity to get to know the true Peru.
Our mission is to reveal the true Peru by sharing local Andean culture and providing access to remote destinations. Simultaneously, we respect and protect our Pachamama (Mother Earth). We strive to offer unique, customized experiences with the highest level of comfort for our clients. In order to do so, we work with the most qualified local tourist guides and a large network of travel agents and professionals.
Spread our culture and philosophy as leaders in the Peruvian tourist industry by providing services in a timely, transparent and reliable manner.
