I am Mexican and know the hidden treasures of My country , I have access to areas other people don't .
My excursions are more than sightseeing , they are experiences , are about culture & nature , about connection , similes and differences , understanding , explore, discover enjoy . . . . even when they are well planned and have a structure they are tailored to your personal interest the day you experience them . . .
I studied tourism but I have made a career in eco-tourism . , public land administration and Interpretation .
Groups I lead are minimum of 2 max 10 because I prefer to bring personal attention and premium service . . . . . .
Isaac Newton said " We all are standing in the shoulders of the giant of the past" ,
So I understand that every place , every culture and creature has a story to tell . . . . . I will interpret and be the voice of the flora , fauna and culture to whoever wants to hear their messages , stories, history , facts, jokes and gossips . . . . . . . .
It will be my pleasure to be your guide or expedition's leader
