Alex Robinson

Journalist & Photographer

Alex’s love of Latin America started in the 1990s when he travelled overland across the Amazon during the dangerous Rondônia gold rush. He then bussed Central America and Mexico for Rough Guides and Cadogan, drove around the edge of Australia, lived in Thailand for a year and moved to São Paulo with his Brazilian wife.  While based there he became Footprint’s Brazil correspondent and a columnist for Latin America’s top travel magazine, Viagem e Turismo.

He has written guidebooks to Brazil, Belize, Spain and Portugal and written and photographed numerous articles on Latin America and Asia for top international magazines.
