About the Guide


I was born in Cordoba, Argentina, where I was able to venture into mountaineering ten years ago. My first steps were in Cordoba's Sierras, and from there, I went to explore higher mountains.

Five years ago, I made my dreams come true when I came to Mendoza to become a professional mountain guide and make a living doing what I love. For the last two years, I have also been working with a foundation dedicated to training in pre-hospital, outdoor emergencies.

Come to Mendoza, join me, discover the Andes and share this passion: the mountains.

What People are Saying about Joaquin Salinas


I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Joaquin is an excellent guide, and will not only take you to you destination, but also teach you a lot about the geography and history around Aconcagua and the area around. The view of Aconcagua is better by the entrance to the park, but the trip up to Confluencia is worth the trouble if you are staying in Mendoza (or nearby, I travelled from Chile just for this hike). Depending on your fitness level, Joaquin can find a hike that will suit you and give you an experience of the Andes mountains that you wont get anywhere else.

I did a four days mountaineering tour with Joaquin and it was great. Joaquin understands to put the foucs on the needs of the customers and his knowledges about the region in the Andes is quite extensive. It was especially great beacuse the nice personality of Jaoquin allowed us to have good talks and insights about the Argentinian culture and life. Can only recommend him!
