About Fred Hopkins

Fred Hopkins driving a UTV over sand dunes along the Pacific coast in Cabo Mexico

Hey! I’m Fred Hopkins, one of the co-founders of Vayando.

For the past 30 years, I’ve been wandering around Latin America and the Caribbean, exploring over a dozen countries and soaking up everything each one has to offer. I’ve had some truly incredible experiences, from exploring archaeological wonders in Peru to ripping up the sand on dune buggies in Cabo.

My love of travel runs deep – it’s been a lifelong passion of mine. I always feel alive and invigorated when I’m in explorer mode, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. I am lucky enough to be able to share those experiences with my family! Seeing the look of wonder on their faces when they encounter something awe-inspiring is truly priceless.

One of the things that drive me is a desire to help others experience the joy of travel. I want to help people take that first step towards exploring the world, whether it’s through planning an itinerary, finding the perfect accommodation, or simply sharing some tips and tricks that I’ve picked up over the years.
