Celinda was born in Maras, Peru, a small community located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, approximately 25 miles north of Cusco. When she was young, her family moved to Cusco where she attended a public school, expanded her knowledge base,and along with her brothers, eventually went on to be part of the first generation in her family to pursue higher education.
In 2001, Celinda began working in the tourism industry. She is a certified guide, and though she says she found this career by “coincidence,” she feels that being a naturalist guide was her destiny. She has worked for various companies leading exploratory glacier journeys, hiking trips on the Inca Trail, and cultural visits to rural areas. In her free time, she loves to travel with her family, discover new places and explore new trails.
