Born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, Daniel Peña CEO & Cofounder of LocalAdventures had always been a fan of the outdoors. Although after graduating in finance and administration, Peña went on to work for a real estate development company and a consulting firm, his real passion was travelling and exploring the uncharted.
Peña met his two co-founders, Moisés Vera, CTO & Sebastián Rodríguez Romero, COO while mountain climbing in Mexico and exploring the Andes in Peru. Apart from sharing the same passion as Peña, they brought in a diverse set of skills with their experience in software development and operations respectively to go with Peña’s financial and business background.
“The bonds that you create while mountain climbing are difficult to build anywhere else, because you are risking your life and you are relying on the other person to be safe. You are going through very difficult times.” said Peña.
