Almario has a knack for active trips throughout neighboring Peru and Ecuador—like lodge-to-lodge kayaking in the Amazon and multi-week catamaran sailings in the Galapagos. And she's been arranging these logistically challenging trips, far from the crowds, for more than 30 years. From exploring Peru's Sacred Valley to sailing the Pacific Ocean on an all-suite catamaran, her trips accommodate photographers and honeymooners alike.

One highlight project she orchestrated recently: "I planned trip for a solo gentleman that spanned 77 days (priced at approximately $73,000)," she says. "It included two weeks on a Galapagos cruise, another few days on the island of Santa Cruz with a private guide, and kayaking between three Amazon eco-lodges. Due to the remote nature of the trip, we also assigned a support kayak to accompany him that carried emergency supplies and an EMT-trained professional."

"For an Ecuador trip, Allie was fantastic at accommodating our complicated schedules (kids and I flying in from West Coast, my husband joining us later in the trip from the East Coast). The pandemic hit two weeks before our departure. We thought we had lost everything (we had already paid for the entire trip). Amazingly, Allie was able to retain all of our bookings. I honestly don't know how she did that — it's not something I could have ever navigated.

In March 2021, we actually took the trip. Allie was even more incredible in this post-Covid world. We never could have done any of this on our own. And most importantly, we never had to worry or fret about it, because we knew Allie was taking care of it all. Her hotel picks, scheduling, and transfers were all top-notch. She recommended a few days in the Highlands at Hacienda Zuleta, which ended up being one of the highlights and my kids' favorite hotel. And her recommendation of La Selva Jungle Lodge was spot-on. I felt I was taking a collegiate level tropical ecology/biology course. It was everything that I dreamed the Amazon would be. The Galápagos are as fantastic as reported, you feel like you are living in a National Geographic special." - Julie H.
