Dear Advisor Partners,
Have you ever received a note from a guest that validates everything you do? Once you read the note, you feel a sense of release, as if someone finally understands why you zig when the world zags. Well this week, I saw a note one of our travelers sent to their advisor, Kathy, about their time in Peru. They were up in the Illescas Peninsula, in the very north of Peru along the coast, less than 1000 miles from the Galapagos Islands. The words they sent were music to my ears. They just get it. In large part, because their travel advisor painted the right picture.
If you have been reading this blog, and listening to our podcast, then you have heard me talk and write about Illescas and how the remoteness of this destination just drew me in. I felt like a trailblazer as we discovered new driving routes to get here from Chiclayo. I connected so well with Illescas and the four-bedroom surf lodge, the only accommodation for 75,000 hectares, that I was left speechless (impossible to believe I know).
Ever since my return, I’ve been searching for the words to describe a place ideal for lovers of surfing, birdwatching, marine life, mammals and more, then Kathy’s guests nailed it. ‘The end of the Earth’ they named it. Bingo! This is exactly how I’d been wanting to describe it. It is the very edge of civilization and a place you can truly get lost.
Those words summarize what we all do in this industry. I know Captain Kirk has a saying in Star Trek, “to boldly go where no man has gone before,” I wonder if he’s been to Illescas?
We invite you to explore our Illescas based Presidents Pick where the next amazing testimonial is waiting to be made.
