Originally from Chicago, Jack McCabe earned a degree in International Studies with a focus on Latin America from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The irony of studying Latin America from a flat cornfield in Illinois was not lost on him, and he has since dedicated his time to exploring the more exciting terrain far south of the border and helping others do the same. When not hiking up volcanos in Costa Rica or skiing down them in Chile, he enjoys strumming the charango and sipping pisco.
I couldn't be happier with my experience with Jack – he even came out on a weekend day in Santiago to meet us face to face! I will definitely use Vaya again on my next trip to South America. Thanks, Jack! You rock! -Stef Robinson, St. Louis, MO
Jack McCabe took our dream and made it a reality. I have been in this business for over 25 years, and he is one of the best I have ever worked with. He went above and beyond the normal requests and made it better than we could have envisioned. -Holly McConnell, Englewood, CO
Well-planned, everything went smoothly. We had a wonderful time, and we are extremely grateful to have had expert advice and guidance from Jack. The places he chose for us to stay were very special, and we will remember this experience forever. -Carol Lite and Ken Cantor, Silver Spring, MD
