Rene Bustamante, EcoCamp On-site Manager

Fresh from his travels in Europe, Rene is excited to be making the transition to his new dome home in Torres del Paine! He enjoys working at EcoCamp "because of the good team work and interaction with people from all over the world".

Victor Cordero, EcoCamp Host
Born in Santa Cruz in the wine region of Colchagua, central Chile, Victor moved to Pucón to study tourism and work in hotels and tour agencies in the region. Another move south took him to the Carretera Austral in northern Patagonia where he worked in lodges before returning to central Chile to be host and tourism manager in some of Chile’s top vineyards. A lover of gourmet food and experiences, Victor loves to travel and meet people from all over the world, especially at EcoCamp where he has the added bonus of working in the heart of Patagonia’s nature with its unique beauty. He wants all visitors to experience this close relationship with nature in such an innovative and special corner of the world while enjoying EcoCamp's gourmet menu and fine Chilean wine!
