“Originally from Marseilles, I traveled a lot of countries before settling in Mexico 26 years ago. I was a diving instructor and then I trained in Mayan history to become an official guide.

I like to transmit all my knowledge and I enjoy discovering an authentic Mexico, far from mass tourism and above all I love to have a good time each day with new people. “


“I have been adventuring and exploring since my childhood, between camping holidays, tours, trips to Mexico and elsewhere.

Passionate about nature and the Mayan civilization, I decided after my studies to go into tourism to share my knowledge and my passion with travelers. “
