Born in Coquimbo, Chile, Miguel found his passion for nature and the mountains at a young age, climbing his first 6,000m peak at only 15 years of age. Following in his father's footsteps he first climbed Cerro Las Tórtolas, followed by the world's southernmost 6,000m mountain, Marmolejo. He has since gone on to have an extensive career guiding across the Andes.
Fluent in both Spanish and English, Miguel is a friendly and empathetic guide. he has a great musical talent, entertaining climbers throughout their journey with him - "People who go with me to the mountain may forget about my name, but I guarantee that the memory of my harmonica will stay with them forever!"
Miguel guides for Adventure Consultants across the Andes, including our Cerro el Plomo and Ojos del Salado expeditions.
