Nicolas di Costanzo & Chalten Camp
Nicolás Di Costanzo (Nico Dico to his friends) is the product of a uniquely Argentine union. His late father, Gerardo, was the son of working-class Italian immigrants to Buenos Aires – a creative personality who inspired Nico’s sense of adventure and imagination. His mother, Cristina, is the daughter of a patrician Porteño family. She endowed him with perseverance, devotion, and a focus on details. This combination of traits imbues his personal and professional life.
After completing his degree in business administration at Universidad Catolica Argentina, he diverged from the traditional career path to focus on hospitality. For two decades he has worked in service and administration at remote lodges and hotels throughout Argentina. Now, he’s developing his own projects. He is the co-founder of Glamping Soul, a sustainable hospitality development group that opened Chalten Camp in 2019.
Nico gravitates to destinations with breathtaking beauty and extraordinary wildlife: Iguazu Falls, El Calafate, El Chalten, Esteros de Ibera, and Bahia Bustamante. Along the way, he’s helped redefine the nation’s traditional concepts of luxury. To him, true luxury goes beyond comfort; it is expressed in warmth, generosity, and access to nature. He envisions a future that returns us to simple pleasures that are vanishing: serenity, awe, and connection.
Nico Dico and John Montgomery
At 42, Nico describes himself as grateful.
“I am married to Marisol, the woman of my life: unconditional, persevering and intelligent. With her we formed a family and had our only daughter: Sira, the ultimate meaning of everything.”
The future as Nico sees it? It can only get better.
