Here’s the translation of the text:

“José, Wayaja’s son, at 35 years old, decided to follow in his father’s footsteps. He has worked his entire life within the Torres del Paine National Park, previously with groups on horseback rides and for the past 6 years, he has been collaborating with his father in the observation and conservation of pumas. José is a great tracker and has an enviable eye for finding pumas!

By the way, he is also known as Wayaja.”

Karen Manosalva Acosta

Born in Santiago, she met her current husband in Torres del Paine and decided to join this adventure by formalizing Wayajapuma in 2015. Since then, the path of being an entrepreneur has been tough and challenging, but her goal is clear: to educate the community and passengers about the wildlife, especially the Puma, in Torres del Paine and its surroundings. She is our operations manager and responsible for the environmental education part of our SME. We are highly committed to providing quality education, and she is our fundamental part in delivering this knowledge to children, especially to the youngest member of the Wayaja clan, Renato. They are the future! Karen is the person who will guide you through the steps to make a reservation and will send you the logistics.
