Captain of Administration & Operations
Education is the only thing that raises a submerged country
I’m only 23 years and I manage the operations of this wonderful project. I know, you might think that I’m too young for this but I’m a self-taught person and I have about 7 years’ experience in tourism. I started as driver in one of the most prestigious travel agencies in Guatemala, from there I jumped to other positions. The first time my brother, Richie, told me about their Cultura Corazón project, I just fell in love with it.
Having been a driver and a tour guide is very important for me to know and understand the on the ground operations that make thing move for real. These jobs humanize you in a certain way and you can realize how hard is the work for the communities, guides and locals. It’s a true privilege that I have this lived perspective. Currently I’m at my last university year in Administration and Research of Education in Guatemala.
My favorite Outdoor Experience is the Double Summit Acatenango and Fuego Volcanoes with El Paredón Surf Beach extension because is a mix of a very mental and physically demanding experience, stunning landscapes views, eruptions and the relaxing pacific beach at the end.
