Spanish, English, German & Mandarin Chinese (basic level)
David Almeida works in our Lima office as a Peru Operations Specialist. He grew up in Lima and has traveled extensively throughout Peru. As a student, he got two scholarships, one that let him improve his German in Bavaria for 2 months, and the other took him to live in Madrid for 3 years studying in the former Tourism College. During this time, he got to travel for much of western Europe. Back in Peru, he worked in the tourism inbound sector since 1998, what has allowed him to explore many of the highlights of Peru and Bolivia. His passion for travel and expertise in Peru operations makes him a valuable member of the SouthAmerica.travel team. In his spare time, you can find David traveling around Peru, South America, Europe or China, enjoying his love for photography or practicing his German and Chinese. At present, David shares his professional life with studying History at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru. David recommends visiting the Peruvian Amazon, Uyuni, Kuelap and Machu Picchu, trying the fabulous Peruvian cuisine in Lima and then enjoying the sunset at the Pacific Ocean.
