Alejandro Tala - EcoCamp Patagonia Guide

 

Alejandro TalaBorn in Santiago but raised in Punta Arenas, Alejandro is no stranger to Patgonian landscapes and is at his most content when climbing Patagonian peaks. To ‘relax’ he likes to scuba dive, go rock climbing with friends, climb mountains and (ok, this one’s actually relaxing) meditate. He also enjoys fishing and horse-riding and his favourite Chilean foods include charquican, bean stew and pastel de choclo - Hopefully you’ll be trying at least one of these during your EcoCamp stay!
 
For those visiting Santiago, Alejandro recommends waking up early, heading to downtown market La Vega and then onto Mercado Central for a tasty fish lunch before ending with a sunset view from Santa Lucia hill. Sounds like our Santiago City Tour is perfect then! Alejandro values perseverance and never travels without energy, motivation, an open mind and, on international journeys, a lot of manjar (a wonderfully sweet - some say sickly sweet - toffee sauce). If he weren’t working at EcoCamp, Alejandro be traveling the world and learning some exotic language. But for now he’s excited to be joining the EcoCamp team and is throwing all his energy into guiding guests through the wonderfully exquisite flora and fauna of Torres del Paine, in the exotic English language.
