Born and raised in my beloved Mexico, I grew up in a family full of passionate entepreneurs in the shape of mom, dad, brother and sister. It soon started to have an effect on me since at age 9 I had a brownie-selling project at school (first foodie alert), and later on at 20 y/o I had my frozen yogurt shop ready to go! As I emerged to the young adulthood phase and form, I had the oppotunity to take over several family business while getting my Marketing Degree, which is the creative and fun part of a business (sorry to any accountant reading!).

Ever since I was little I liked to travel and seek new horizons, meeting other people, cultures and dishes. I lived in France, Spain and the caribbean island of St. Martin, but heart in hand nothing could beat my sunny, charming and guacamolishy Mexico! I’ve always been really fond of nature, camping, hiking, and of course snorkeling and diving. I took my first dive at thirteen years old! If you don’t know why I’m in love with the nature over here, I gladly extend you my invitation to come and see it for yourself (nope, it’s not some maketing trick).

After a lot in life, Yago and I decided it was time for us to start our own project, hoping to bring all those adventures and amazing experiences to everyone. We aim to share with you not only the wonderfulness nature has to show, but also a bit of our soul in the process. But don’t let the easy-on-the-eyes blond from the right fool you, it’s me who has all the brains! Thank you for taking the time to meet us, hope to see you soon!

I’ve been in the water as far back as I can remember. I was born in northern Spain in 1984 and spent my entire childhood washed by the northern seas and amazed by Jaques Cousteau’s films. Like any kid, I was of course also amazed by dinosaurs, cosmology and distant planets, and literally everything that did not exist any longer or was plainly too far away to witness, specially the deep Ocean. All those distant worlds, all those fantastic creatures! How wonderful must have been to be an explorer!

This craving ultimately sparkled a life-changing decision: in 2008 I dropped all I had  and started working and travelling around the globe. From Spain to Malta, Austria, France, New Zealand, Bonaire, St Martin and lastly, Mexico, where I decided to set my own project alongside my incredible wife, Monica.

Along the way I developed a taste for technical diving, underwater exploration and conservation, as well as strict principles and high standards in my work. I’m glad to say that all this eventually leaded into Blue Nation!
