Age: 18 Arrived at Casa: 2004
Birthday: July 5
Marco has always been the house entertainer! From the beginning, he’s had a naturally funny energy and just loved to play, get dirty, and crack jokes. It was always hard to get mad at him, even when he forgets to pick up his clothes or clean his room. Marco is also a very talented artist with an incredible imagination.
Now Marco is a free-spirited and friendly young man who enjoys meeting visitors and learning more about life outside Peru. Becuase of his outgoing nature and good English skills, Marco often helps guests with tours and activities in Urubamba.
Marco has become a serious musician and yogi. After high school, he considered studying to become a Kundalini yoga teacher or a DJ. and he auditioned for a very competitive spot in the music department at the University. We were really proud of how hard he worked, and he learned a lot preparing for the audition, but with 40 musicians competing for just three spots, it wasn’t meant to be.
With great resiliency, Marco has switched gears and is now studying to become a tour guide, which is a great fit for his skills and personality. He continues to play guitar and still has a serious interest in yoga. The combination should create some interesting experiences for his tour guests!
