Meet Elizabeth Puma

Elizabeth Puma

Elizabeth was born and raised in the Colca Canyon area. She is very proud of her ancestors because her grandmother comes from the Pre-incas Civilization. She moved to Arequipa city as soon she finished high school because, in her small town, there weren't any University or Institutes. There, she studied history, culture, customs and the traditions of her country. She started guiding tours in 2008 and loves preparing new tours about everything from history to geology, volcanology and birding. She really enjoy showing people her country and loves to learn about other cultures as well. Join Elizabeth as she shows you the white city and it's surroundings, there is so much to see!

We just attended a wonderful ritual with beautiful Elizabeth in her very home to celebrate Pacha Mama (Mother Earth). What a priviledge! There was a special part of the ritual dedicated to our wishes. How kind! Thank you so much Elizabeth!

Thank you Elizabeth for sharing this ritual and your home with us. It was very special to join your family and friends to celebrate Pachamama and understand the importance of this annual ritual to you and your country. Thank you for explaining the meaning of each of the individual parts of the offering. It was joy to learn about this part of your culture. Elizabeth is the nicest guide on Heygo, very genuine, kind and caring the love and respect for her culture is palpable.

What a beautiful, moving and powerful tour, so grateful that Elizabeth thought of us, shared this very special ceremony and even prayed for all of us! The ceremony was very unique and I felt so privileged to learn about it. Love the idea of being able to treat mother earth as one's own mother!
