No Small World Adventures kayaking trip would be complete without being driven around the country by Memo Bonilla. Memo grew up in Quito and has been with SWA for twenty years. He is, without a doubt, a vital member of our team. Memo is not only the safest driver in Ecuador, but he’s also the most knowledgeable about his country, the birdlife we see, and all the river access points. Memo speaks great English, so if you have questions about Ecuador, or need a hand with anything, just ask him, he’s always happy to help. When he’s not driving the Sprinter full of kayakers around, you can find Memo either playing futbol (soccer) or jogging around town training for futbol. One of his favorite things to do is to play a match with the kayakers and the local kids in Borja, so if you’re up for it after a day paddling, just ask and we’ll hit the field.
