My love for travel is fueled by a passion for cultures, an admiration for architecture and a wonder of nature. It is my unfaltering compass in life. I live for the exploration of parts unknown.
My travel style
Former globetrotter turned boutique hotel General Manager, I have a knack for unturning the hidden gems of a destination. I live and breathe for the intersection of design, culture and nature with the belief that a well executed hotel should imprint you into the pulse of the local community. When done mindfully, travel creates a symbiotic enrichment and this is the ultimate goal.

Hotel Punta Caliza
