(PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO, August 01, 2022) Today Journey Mexico announced their expansion into Costa Rica. The new venture into Central America will be spearheaded by Co-Founder and General Manager Javier Echecopar, offering high-end and ultra-luxury travel experiences for discerning guests. Journey Costa Rica will start to take travel inquiries when they launch operations in September.
Echecopar brings 15 years of experience in luxury adventure travel including founding his own photography-focused travel company in Chile and 11 years working in multiple positions for Abercrombie & Kent in both New York and Chile. Echecopar says ¨ Costa Rica is a small destination with immense potential. It is a country that offers a model for sustainability and well-being that could be replicated widely. At Journey Costa Rica, we aim to be radically sustainable in how we approach travel while offering high touch, creative journeys for the most discerning travelers.”
On joining forces with Journey Mexico´s Executive Team, comprised of CFO Rebecca Scotti, COO Matteo Luthi, and CEO Zachary Rabinor, Echecopar said ¨Zach and I go back many years. We discovered we had a similar outlook on life, including our adventure-meets-luxury travel style, but more importantly, we both had strong opinions on the importance of travel to connect people and create a positive impact.” Echecopar, Scotti, Luthi, and Rabinor will combine their experience, passion, and creative approach to lead the Journey team in sharing authentic and unforgettable luxury journeys in Costa Rica.
Journey Mexico has long been a leader in the luxury travel sphere, with an unmatched resume of awards and accolades throughout its 20 years of operations in Mexico. The company is widely recognized for its expertise in designing unique, tailor-made itineraries with seamless service and 24/7 in-country support. “We’ve had Costa Rica in our sights for a long time” says Rabinor, “its biodiversity, Pura Vida culture, and commitment to sustainability align with our ethos and values; we were waiting for the right time and even more importantly the right person – the time is now”. Having met Javier through the travel industry at different events around the world, Rabinor says he was ¨impressed by his thoughtfulness, integrity, ambition, and commitment to using travel as an agent of change.¨
