Merina Begg, Managing Director ATP DMC

Merina Begg

I have been in the travel business for over 30 years and am an enthusiastic travel-lover.  Argentine-born, I lived and worked in the UK for 10 years, first for a specialist tour operator in London concentrating on the Caribbean and Far East, and later for a leading tour operator whose focus was initially on Africa and the Indian Ocean, prior to developing their South America programme which became extremely successful.  I was later one of the founders of Americas, which continues to thrive today.

In 1992 I returned to Argentina to join my family’s travel agency, developing an inbound management organization with specialized divisions for cruise line requirements, corporate incentive programmes, special interest and leisure travel.  In 1996 I decided to start my own company:  Argentina Travel Partners, still adhering to the tenets of honesty, reliability and creativity which were the hallmarks of the family business for over 60 years.

As the face of ATP DMC abroad, I currently spend a lot of time on the road as I firmly believe in giving personalized attention to my clients, a philosophy which I instil in all my staff.

In my spare time I like to indulge in a round or two of golf, wine-tasting with friends, people watching (I do a lot of that on my trips) and reading.

What I love most about Argentina is…everything!  The diversity, the hum, the gaiety of the people and their enthusiasm for life, the spectacular scenery (from the tropics to the poles, all in one country).  One can never get bored in Argentina.
