Alpine Guide- Mendoza, Argentina

Verifications

Email address 

I was born in Córdoba, Argentina, where I was able to venture into mountaineering more than ten years ago. I took my first steps in the Sierras de Córdoba, and from there, I set out to explore higher mountains.
Five years ago, I achieved my dreams when I came to Mendoza to become a professional mountain guide and earn a living doing what I love. Two years from now, we created our own adventure tourism company in Mendoza.
For the last 3 years, I have been working in a foundation, as an instructor in first aid and rescue in wild areas, training government agencies, guides, etc. I have made Advanced emergency medical technician in Buenos Aires, with real ambulance hours.

Join me in one of my programs and discover the Andes with me.

Highly recommended!!! Joaquín and Venina were fantastic and fun guides! On the first day we went out to approx 3200m for acclimatization and enjoyed a delicious meal next to the tent with fantastic views. On the second day we went up to the summit. We felt save and in great company during the whole trip. Communication before and after was easy, fast and helpful e.g. for renting some equipment. Would definitely do it again!

Joaquin was an amazing tour guide! He was polite, on time, and gave us an amazing experience. He is not only a great guide but amazing person, we love talking to him and learning about Argentina and consider him a friend. We are so appreciative and this hike was the highlight of our trip.

This was truly a wonderful two days, I had one objective which was to experience altitude prior to beginning a long high altitude expedition in the coming days. Joaquin curated the two days around this objective and we headed to an area off the beaten track. I just loved this and feel so fortunate to have experienced this area, the Guanaco's were fascinating and I just loved watching them and spotting them in the mountains. Joaquin provided me with so much knowledge and useful tips to help me during my expedition. The two days ended in an unexpected storm which just added to the fun and really rounded out what was one of the most memorable hikes I have done to date. Next time I'm back in Mendoza I will definitely call on Joaquin again.
