About Gilda Fuentes

Guest Services


From Argentina, Gilda has always wanted to travel the world. And here she is, in the antipodes of the world, spreading the word that traveling makes you a better person. Her first job in a youth hostel 20 years ago was the kick-start of an enriching professional life that has had her assisting people while working in different capacities in many cool places.

Gilda has worked as a tour leader in South America, a hotel receptionist, a guest services manager, a waitress, a tour manager with a wine tour company, an operations manager of boutique hotels, a hotel manager on a ship, and a teacher. Above all, she has been blessed by those she has met and by all that she has learned throughout her life’s journey.

With a master’s degree in tourism and hotel management completed in Barcelona, Gilda continues to discover the world and to share it to others. She started her sailing life 6 years ago in Antarctica and now spends half the year working aboard ships and the other half at home in Mendoza with her 2 dogs.
