Remko Stikkelbroeck | Co-Founder & Managing Director
Remko was introduced to travelling at a young age and never looked back. In addition to Latin America, he has spent extensive time in the Caribbean, Africa and Europe and speaks four languages.
Remko strongly believes that travelling should be more than ticking places off the bucket list. For him, the journey revolves around meeting locals and experiencing their way of life.
Central America and South America are the perfect destinations for Remko as locals are genuinely interested in sharing their stories and experiences with travellers. His top experience was World Cup Brazil in 2014 where his Dutch countrymen performed extraordinarily well – he is convinced it was his presence that helped them play their best and make it so far in the tournament.
