Behind the travels

ABOUT me

My family story, how we fell in love with family travel and how Monos Viajeros was born.

Made in Ecuador, I love languages, concerts and all things                     I dream about remote living and having friends all over the world.

Hi there! My name is Ana, and I'm the creator & voice behind our travel brand Monos Viajeros. 
I'm an Ecuadorian travel mom currently living in North California with my hubby Luisfe, and our 2 little travelers Nala & Luka.  

Before we became parents, we visited amazing places like Iguazú Falls, Barcelona, The Galápagos Islands, The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley; and just a few weeks before our fully planned 19-day Southeast Asia trip, we found out someone -inside mama's belly- wanted to join our trip.

about me

I even melancholically planned a Mexico baby moon, but man, little did I know that the birth of Nala would redirect our lives COMPLETELY! and would create more travel for us than ever before.  At 3 months Nala took her first flight to Ecuador, she celebrated the 1st year in New York, at 16 months she came with us on our 2nd Eurotrip and visited places like Krka National Park in Croacia, Istanbul in Turkey and Athens in Greece. 

Traveling with her made me realize first - how crazy I was to think that I could just remove travel from our lives - but also, how meaningful traveling as a family was for us. How much we connected, how much happier we were, how much Nala learned and how intensely we wanted to keep doing it. 










Which empowered me to create MONOS VIAJEROS.
A platform to inspire, guide and help other families have adventures, even after having kids, learn how to create unique travel experiences and use all the benefits of travel to feel better, be happier, and make each day count.

As expected, I thought our travel life would be over the moment baby came...

I also discovered that there were many families feeling just like we did, thinking their travels would be over.

"Travel brings out the best version of ourselves, and that's something we'd like to teach others"

I would watch Club de Cuervos all over again. And La Casa de Papel.

They know all the benefits travel can bring to their families because they’ve experienced it before. Spending time with locals, discovering a place by foot and kayaking to watch the sunset is their kind of trip.

Our kinda mama knows that her kids will be little for a very short time, so she plans to live these years intensely, having adventures and traveling por todo el mundo.
