About our guides
Each of our guides is a real
expert in his or her field of expertise. From our architects and historians in Mexico City, San Miguel de Allende, Oaxaca & San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico and Guatemala City & Antigua in Guatemala, who guide our city and museum tours, our
archaeologists and epigraphers around the Maya World, and elite sportsmen & women, who guide our extreme volcano and new mountain biking adventures, to our jungle trekkers -naturalists and birders- going through our river
guides, cavers, volcano climbers and divers, each and every
one of our guides is a master at what he or she does and loves!!!
That is why when traveling with us you will learn and enjoy...
while your comfort, safety and well being are our top priority.
Most of our staff were conservationists long before becoming
involved in ecotourism and were wilderness explorers, who
made great long-lasting friendships with people in rural communities.
In other words, we were ecotourists ourselves, a long time
before the term was even "invented" in the 1980s.
It is this great friendship and trust that serves as the base
for all of our operations and mutually beneficial relationships
with people and nature!!! All of our staff is integrated by
trained professionals, who excel in their areas of expertise.
