Vanessa – Travel Specialist 

Vanessa was born of Peruvian parents in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. She graduated from Kent State University and acquired a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, and Minor in Pre-Med Practical Nursing. Soon thereafter, she found her home at Tampa Bay’s, St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital and ER. In 2009 destiny brought her to Peru on a vacation that never ended. She fell in love with the food, the people, the culture but most importantly, being the mother of three beautiful daughters.

Vanessa worked her way through high school and college working in hospitality and customer service, and being a native English speaker, she found work in tourism easily when arriving to Peru. After some time working in Cusco, and later on for several years for one of the most reputable cruise and tourism companies in Peru, she is very excited to call her new home Rainforest Cruises. Vanessa has experienced extensive travel throughout all of Peru including the highlights of South America such as Sao Paolo, Rio De Janeiro, in Brazil; Quito, Guayaquil, Montañitas, and Galapagos in Ecuador; La Paz in Bolivia, Cordoba and Salta in Argentina. Travel is not only a hobby but sincere passion, since a very young age she was lucky enough to explore Europe and Africa and her goal is to keep checking locations off her bucket List. 


Vanessa loves the opportunity to connect with clients from around the world to help travelers enjoy a journey full of adventures, wildlife, unique experiences and countless memories.
