Born into a family of travelers, Rafa’s passion for traveling began at a very early age. During high school, he was introduced to the concept of backpacking and began taking camping trips with his friends to Patagonia. He remembers how he could have stayed there forever, wandering around the mountains, sitting around campfires, and exploring the countless, majestic lakes in that area.
Upon graduating from college, he set off to travel the world. During that trip, he realized that his dream was to inspire travelers from all over the world to explore and experience Argentina and Chile in a way that allowed them to connect deeply with nature and that offered them honest insight about the local cultures. And that’s what he has done and continues to do.
Travel, a force for good
He is a strong believer that travel can be a powerful force for good. Travel helps protect and empower local cultures, helps develop a sense of responsibility with the environment, and opens our hearts and minds to other traditions and ways of life.
Say Hueque & Argentina Family Travel
At the age of 24, he founded Say Hueque based on three values that are still our milestones: a love of nature, the importance of sharing with local communities, and the importance of doing all of that with a deep passion for travel and exploration.
As the Ambassador of the Transformational Travel Council in Argentina and also the local Ambassador for the Adventure Travel Trade Association, he is now promoting a change in the industry to inspire a more sustainable way of traveling.
Rafa takes an Argentina trip at least once a year. He love spends a lot of time traveling with his wife and two sons. He has a front-row seat to see how traveling transforms, teaches, and moves his kids in the deepest of ways. It is with the fuel from these experiences that he decided to develop a new travel division, which has become his new passion: Argentina Family Travel.
