Thalia M.

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico

Hello and Bienvenidos a Mexico! My name is Thalia, born and raised in Mexico City.

Starting as an amateur naturalist from a young age and later on dedicating my school years to the study of life, I decided to become a biologist. The ocean and marine life had always fascinated me, so I decided to pursue my studies in that area and earned a Master's degree in Marine Ecology, specializing in marine mammal behavior.

I have worked in many areas going from being a waitress to becoming a teacher, when as I was studying as was also a junior researcher. Later on, I entered the tourism industry working as a lifeguard and then as a guide and a travel agent. That's when I decided to become an official tourist guide certified by the Mexican Tourism Board.

I grab every available opportunity to jump in a car, bus, train, or boat to travel. I have visited most of Mexico and have been to the USA, Canada, Cuba, Costa Rica and several countries in Europe. I enjoy sharing my experiences and teaching, therefore as I entered the world of tourism, I found the perfect opportunity to get in touch with other cultures, to teach and learn while having fun and respecting nature.

Never a dull moment on my tours, always seeking for adventure, and trying to make the most out of every experience. My guests, become my friends. . . as we say in Mexico: Mi casa es tu casa!

So Welcome to my world, I'll do everything possible for you to fall in love with it!

A Recent Review of this guide

It was wonderful to go out with a tour operator and captain who were so aware of the vulnerability of the ecosystem of the whales. We never intruded on the whales, but rather let them come to us if they chose - spectacular! Super Friendly and Knowledgeable!
