About Us

Aracari is the pioneer in high-end, sustainable travel to Peru, Bolivia and the Galapagos Islands, specializing in private, tailormade journeys. Aracari was founded in 1996 by Marisol Mosquera, who left a career in international Finance to return to her native Peru with a vision of offering authentic, luxury experiences to discerning travelers, while supporting the communities in the regions they explored.

The trusted travel experts

Marisol and her locally-based team offer up-to-the-minute trusted travel advice based on first-hand experience, delivering an uncompromised quality of service and honest recommendations. Behind the scenes we ensure trips run smoothly, with 24/7 support when you’re traveling. Don’t just take our word for it: Many journalists have travelled with us and written about their experiences in the media, as well as guests who consistently provide us with glowing testimonials on Tripadvisor.

Authentic insider access

Through connections cultivated by founder Marisol Mosquera, Aracari has tapped into the expertise of specialists in art, history, archaeology, gastronomy and culture, who provide our guests with their invaluable insight into the places they visit—information and access which is otherwise inaccessible to travellers.

Aracari’s Accolades

At the forefront of experiential travel, Marisol has been recognized as both Conde Nast Top Travel Specialist to Peru and Bolivia and selected as the Travel + Leisure A-List as a specialist for Peru and Bolivia. We’ve also been awarded Positive’ Luxury’s Butterfly Mark in recognition of our responsible travel initiatives.
