1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
The company was established in 2010, but the idea for a Philippine adventure travel company goes back to 2006. Leo is an avid adventurer and traveler and decided to make a business out of these two passions of his. He went to business school in Massachusetts, USA and worked with adventure travel companies in the United States and South America to develop and refine his business idea. In 2010 Leo went back to the Philippines to start setting up the company.
2. What is your company's mission?
Our mission is to provide the most authentic and awe-inspiring adventure experiences in the Philippines while preserving the beauty of the places that we visit.
3. What does your company specialize in?
We specialize in adventure tours to off-the-beaten-path destinations. We focus on places with unspoiled nature and seek out areas that are relatively undeveloped and are not overrun by tourists.
4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
Our founder is Leo Cuesta. Prior to getting his Masters in Business degree in the US, he worked in leisure real estate development, helping design and manage seaside resorts and mountain retreats. While getting his MBA he worked with Earthwatch Institute, an environmental organization with adventure travel operations. After graduation he went to Colombia and worked with Grupo Kajuyali, an adventure camp and adventure travel company. Leo is an experienced SCUBA diver, climber, backpacker, kayaker and mountain biker.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
Our most popular packages are the Cordillera and Palawan tours. These are among the country’s most well-known destinations but they are not touristy and remain relatively undeveloped. Many people want to visit these places and get our help to guide them, make all the arrangements and ensure that they experience the best that these destinations have to offer.
