Expert Bio

Lucia found her love for adventure while living in Cancun, Mexico.  As a young girl she had the opportunity to join the Coral Reef Alliance as an open water diver where she helped to protect the second largest barrier reef in the world.  At the age of 18 her passion for culture and archaeology grew when she became a certified tourist guide specializing in the Mayan areas of Mexico.  Lucia lived in a UNESCO biosphere reserve for a few months as a volunteer where she operated small tours which gave clients the opportunity to encounter wildlife, go bird watching and explore the Mayan Ruins. 

Lucia graduated from the Hotel and Travel Business Management School of Universidad La Salle Cancun and worked in the hospitality industry and sales for 7 years with the Ritz-Carlton and Starwood Hotels.  She has recently settled in Hawaii, but has lived in Mazatlan, New York, California, Florida and San Antonio.  Lucia believes that traveling allows her clients to discover other cultures and to learn how to respect them while reconnecting with families and loved ones.  

Everyone has different dreams, desires and motivation, Lucia will help you customize the most memorable experiences so that you are able to achieve what matters the most to you.
