This year marks our 40th anniversary! In October 1979, newlyweds Oswaldo and Julieta gave birth to Nuevo Mundo Expeditions over a brainstorming session in the kitchen of their small apartment. And that was it! Gradually, they built a tour company based on the principles of ecotourism, which were new at the time. Oswaldo took on his passion of making foreign travelers fall in love with Ecuador as the main guide and CEO, bringing aboard two partners later on. They would build many projects together, like the first ecolodge in the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, and a 4-star hotel in Quito. Over the years, Nuevo Mundo specialized in the luxury market, understanding “luxury” beyond the fancy hotel or restaurant concept to include exclusive luxury “experiences” like intimate interaction with local communities, exploration of pristine forests, and breath-taking landscapes. Most importantly, this was accomplished along with constant innovation and protection of natural and human resources. Fast-forward 40 years and today we have the second generation, David and Julieta Jr., working to develop exceptional travel packages to meet our clients’ specific interests. Therefore, when traveling with us, “we won’t make you feel at home, but rather make you truly feel in Ecuador.”
Over the course of this year, we will share fun and interesting stories with you about our long trajectory. So, stay tuned!
