Natural Habitat Adventures

Joseline Cardoso

Josy was born in Quito, Ecuador and moved to the Galapagos at the age of 10. To this day, she considers it the best thing that ever happened to her. She attended school in Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz and studied abroad in the U.S. and Italy. By the time she was 18, she knew she was destined to pursue her dream job as a naturalist guide, and she began guiding in the Galapagos in 2005. She has a bachelor's degree in tourism administration and hotel management from the University Espíritu Santo in Guayaquil. She also obtained a scholarship to pursue master's studies in in tourism management and planning at the University of Alicante in Spain. As an Expedition Leader, Josy's desire is to share her passion for the islands with her guests and to impart an appreciation for their natural environment and wild inhabitants.

Upcoming Adventures with Josy:

Praise from Nat Hab Travelers

L.Hornig

"I cannot say enough good things about Josy. I hope my daughters grow up to be just like her! She was truly focused on our comfort and making sure we had a good time. She also knows her subject matter thoroughly (and I am a science teacher who has a PhD in Evolutionary Biology, so my standards are pretty high) and conveyed information at just the right level and always in context. Josy handled all the practical matters with ease and grace."

J. Uliano

"Josy was the trip. She was the most knowledgeable and informative guide that I have ever encountered. She is the reason that I would return. Every subject, briefing and tour was focused and she attended to everyone on the trip's questions and needs. We traveled with experienced travelers and every one of us was highly impressed with her depth of knowledge, her enthusiasm and the breadth of her ability in geology, biology, history and hospitality. I cannot say enough about her personally and professionally. On a scale of 1 to 10 she is a 12."

C. Kleeman
"Josy was an all-around fantastic guide! She was very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and friendly to boot. She clearly knew so much about the islands (geology, plants, wildlife, tourism) and was eager to share her knowledge with us. She was also wonderful to talk with while on board the ship, where she told us about her experiences growing up in the islands, her dreams for the future and also got involved in the various games we played. Basically, I could not give her a higher recommendation!"

J. Kremer
"Josie was so exceptional—professional, caring and able to transmit her passion and enthusiasm for the Galapagos to all of us. She was wonderful with each of my grandchildren and made sure that each of them had an extraordinary experience."

J. Sparks
"Joseline was absolutely amazing. She connected to our group immediately and interacted with all of us. When we were snorkeling, every few minutes she would take a count to make sure we were all in the area and okay. Josy was warm, friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable."
