Beatriz Schmitt

I was born an urban girl, raised in a city in Spain, reading adventure books and watching nature TV shows. Only my summer vacation to the Pyrenees got me closer to my dreams, that was until I moved to Panama. Here nature is so provocative that you're driven to the edge of marvel and exhaustion. It can be the deep jungle, the cloud forest in the mountains, or the empty and wild beaches. Nature here is bold, and untamed. Then I met Rick many years ago, and that personal quest and exploration has taken me even further at Jungle Treks. I take pride in being part of this journey: designing the expeditions, tasting new menus, and sharing in the decision-making. But I think what makes me the most proud is the look of achievement and satisfaction in the faces of our clients at the end of each expedition.
