SunWind Travel is an enterprise created in 2000 by three members of an Ecuadorian-Swiss family: Rodrigo Jácome-Speck, Santiago Jácome-Speck and Lourdes Jácome-González, who forms part of SWT in Geneva, Switzerland.
The joint experience we have acquired along our exiting lives, our knowledge of our beautiful country, Ecuador, our adventurous spirit and the wish to share our experiences with others, together with fulfilling our dream to put together a travel business, gave birth to what SunWind Travel currently is: A family business that offers services of the highest quality, organized according to needs and available time of our guests.
We organize naturalist and diving cruises in the Galápagos Islands, Amazon expeditions, Andes expeditions, cultural trips and much more. All trips with SWT are tailored to your preferences.
Our company's name: SUN, represents our heritage, our culture, and comes from the cult that our ancestors rendered the SUN which they considered as the giver of life and fountain of all energy. The symbol is a gold figure from 1000 years ago, belonging to the culture TUNCAHUAN, which makes reference to this cult in the middle of the world and is part of their Cosmo vision. WIND, represents the traveler that arrives in company of its spirit; in old times the navigating travelers were called: "brought by the wind".
"In a trip with SunWind Travel you will discover a fascinating world, full of emotions and of the indescribable pleasure of reaching remote places lost in time, which you didn't even imagine existed. A trip through Ecuador can be a unique experience and of a profound spiritual wealth, derived of the encounter with people of such a rich and diverse culture and also of the interaction with a mega diverse environment in which your personal involvement is of great importance to its conservation and protection."
