I am an entrepreneur and professional dive instructor
I am an entrepreneur and professional dive instructor and explorer based on the Caribbean Coast of Mexico. I left Mexico City, where I was born and raised, and a career in tax accounting 15 years ago to pursue my life-long passion, SCUBA diving.
HERE IS MY STORY
After spending the better part of two years traveling mostly through Central America teaching diving and exploring I settled in the tiny town of Xcalak, the southernmost tip of the Mexican Caribbean Coast, on the border with Belize; where I took over XTC Dive Center, then a tiny dive center taking divers out to the Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve and diving the local reefs of the Xcalak Reef National Park.
Through organic growth and innovation my team have grown the company into a diversified tourism holding company that owns and manages multiple businesses in the SCUBA Diving, watersports, excursion, hotel, restaurant and bar (food service) and tour operator sectors with a heavy focus on sustainably run and vertically integrated business models.
