Jack first travelled in South and Central America prior to university and has been back several times since. He loved the wildlife, stunning scenery, cultural sites and sense of adventure, but it was the language and the fascinating history of the region that led him to studying History and Spanish. After working in Puerto Rico for a year and then in the American Mid-West, Jack then moved into the travel industry.
Since joining Audley, Jack has had the chance to revisit Costa Rica and was then introduced to Cuba, a truly intriguing country full of history, culture and wonderful landscapes. His highlights of these countries include driving around Havana in a 1950s Cadillac, wildlife watching in the cloud forests of Monteverde and releasing baby turtles onto a deserted Pacific beach at sunrise.

Jack 's Most Memorable Experience
The Osa Peninsula is an untouched wildlife paradise on Costa Rica's Pacific coast.
I was staying at Bosque del Cabo, a lovely lodge with a pool, sea views and plenty of hiking trails. One morning, I woke up early so lay in a hammock on my terrace overlooking the Golfo Dulce. It was nearing the end of the whale watching season so I didn't hold out much hope, but I kept an eye out to see if I would spot anything that would break the calm surface. After just 20 minutes I saw a fluke appear and disappear again, before later seeing the whale emerge just 200 metres further along, blowing water into the air and more clearly visible. I then went up for a cooked breakfast and a swim. That was a pretty exceptional start to the day.
