Kika Caballero

Kika Caballero was born in Lima, Peru, and learned to become a guide at Peru's national school for guides, where students make in-depth studies of Peru's archaeology, flora and fauna, and history. A former President of the Peruvian guides' association, Kika has now been guiding for 25 years, 15 of those for Wilderness Travel. "In this work, we always need to study because we need to stay informed, especially about the latest archaeological findings in Peru. I want to thank everyone who likes to travel because it gives me the chance to meet them! It's fantastic to share our lives for a while and learn more about each other—because after all, we are sharing the same house—Planet Earth."
