Juan Carlos Sosa

Native Ecuadorian, Juan Carlos Sosa has been guiding for over 30 years. He feels he has always been called to this vocation and loves to show off his country’s beauty to visitors. His love for the Galápagos is far and wide. He has an intense curiosity for its historical origins, embraced by its imposing volcanoes and the jungle´s lush vegetation.

He started guiding after returning from the United States in 1980 where he participated in an exchange student program, “Youth for Understanding.” The first company who hired him offered plenty of training courses in different fields and he essentially became self-taught.

He has an official license as a National Guide and became a Naturalist Guide for the Galápagos Islands in 1994. In 2000, he received an award of excellency from the Prince of Luxembourg and the Charles Darwin Foundation for fundraising programs he created for the conservation of the Galápagos Islands.

He lived in Holland for three years, attending a Dutch school for two years. He also lived in Italy for six months to study Italian and the country’s culture. He is well-travelled, visiting several places including, the United States (several states), Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic , Antigua and Barbuda, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, Austria, Norway, Greece and Turkey. Juan can communicate with many guests as he is fluent in Spanish, English, Italian and speaks 50% Dutch.
