Eloy Castro


Eloy was born in 1964 and grew up in the rural community of Zarcero. He’s been involved in guiding and tourism for over 15 years. These days when he’s not busy guiding, you can usually find him working away on his passion project – creating a certified organic farm about 20 kilometers from his house. He keeps in shape by biking there at least 3 times a week.

Eloy is a fan of Tibetan philosophy, and believes that when you travel you learn, you tolerate, you’re surprised and you value and appreciate what you have at home. “To live on little is wonderful. Life is not to have, it is to be,” says Eloy

Eloy cares for his mother in the home they share in Zarcero.
