Roberto Caz Quillay,
Mountain guide and nature tour leader

Roberto Caz Quillay was born in Ecuador in a Puruhá village called Alao San Antonio. He lives there with his wife Grigoria and his five children. He is the link between REGALO and the local population. In 1989 he was the first indigenous person to climb the Sangay, a snow-covered peak. In 1991 he founded a local association for mountain guides from the region. In the meantime, he has led innumerable national and international expeditions in the Sangay National Park, and now knows more about the Sangay heights than anyone else.
Roberto Caz Quillay is a passionate defender of the Sangay National Park, with its unique fauna and flora, and also makes great efforts to improve the living conditions for the people of his village.

Marco Cevallos Melchiade,
architect and mountain guide

A good friend of the indigenous population. By ecotourism he promotes work for the native population of Ecuador and the alpine valleys of the Andes. He lives with his family in Quito.

In the community of Guarguallá Chico we have provided accommodation for 12 people, for ecotourism. Under the name of AGIG (Union of the native guides of Guarguallá) a group of inhabitants provide tours in the Sangay National Park. We hope that their efforts and their initiative will be rewarded in that they will receive many visitors. However, only Spanish will be used by the leaders of these tours.
Services in German, English and French can be provided by Marco Cevallos (see link above).
