This Argentina-born travel expert draws up itineraries filled with scenic Patagonia drives and road trips, private air charters, visits to the heart-pounding Iguazú Falls, and luxurious estancia stays. These feats are possible thanks to her decades of experience planning trips to South America. "I've traveled constantly since I was born, lived in multiple countries, and have daughters and other family members living in diverse places around the world," says Barrenechea. "I'm a passionate researcher and scout for new products and experiences."

And while she is a pro at planning referral trips similar to ones she's done in the past, Barrenechea is always looking to the future. The Blue Patagonia route along the South Atlantic coastline, which consists of national parks, marine wildlife, and local villages, has captured her attention for 2022 and beyond. A hotel she's excited about: La Frontera Lodge & Golf, a new retreat in Salta, Argentina. Barrenechea can expertly handle the most complicated itineraries for a variety of clients, from family road trips to solo-bucket list hikes.
