MEET MARIA – OUR COORDINATOR
My name is Maria Fernanda Tobar Escobar, I am 34 years old I have two beautiful children, Salome 7 years and Carlitos 4 years. I have been living on the Galapagos Islands for some years, of which I really feel a passion for the Galapagos Islands because of its simplicity and nature that surrounds us. Living here is very beautiful but we also have to respect the nature, its fauna in order to protect the islands of any danger. Working on the islands gives me the opportunity to know more about my beautiful country, I have lived a long time in The Netherlands and I always had that interest to learn more about the wonders of Ecuador, that is why it was my goal to study Tourism and languages, since I like to travel and learn about other cultures around the world. My favorite places are the beaches and especially Tortuga Bay, you get lost in its beautiful and relaxing view which is, a very nice place where you can enjoy its flora and fauna, a unique place in Santa Cruz.
