Meet Your Guides
Jessica is a true Galapagueto by being born and raised in Galapagos on the island of San Cristobal. She has said, "Since I was a little girl my dream was to work as a naturalist guide to share and explain to people how the Galapaguetos live here, spending day after day with this unique flora and fauna." After completing her university training in Cuba, she returned to Galapagos in 2002 to fulfill her dream by completing the Naturalist Guide Course and entering the tourism world. Jessica's love of the flora, fauna and amazing animals of Galapagos shines when she explains about the behavior of giant breeching whales or the tiny workings of sally light foot crabs. Jessica lives in San Cristobal with her family.
"Since becoming a Naturalist Guide, I have experienced amazing moments in contact with animals like whales, sharks, dolphins, sea lions, iguanas, giant tortoises, beautiful birds and amazing landscapes. I invite you to visit us; your vacation will be unforgettable. See you soon."
