Jon Hillstead

Jon was born in Los Angeles, California and raised in the Pacific Northwest. His interest in travel and South America came to life while he was studying abroad during college. Living and working in the Ecuadorian Amazon, he became intrigued with the indigenous Kichwa culture and local way of life. This sparked his interest to continue to explore other parts of South America. He traveled from the Amazon to the Andes and from the coast of the Galapagos and into Peru. Traveling all by land from Mancora in Northern Peru to Lake Titicaca in southern Peru, gave him an understanding of the geography and culture of the country. Some of Jon’s highlights include snorkeling with manta rays in the Galapagos, trekking at 13,000 ft in the Cordillera Blanca, and watching the sun rise over Machu Picchu. With his love for adventure, the outdoors and his passion for travel, Jon hopes to inspire others with his experiences to make South America their next travel destination.
