About me: Spent many many very messy years traveling and working but I happen to be the worlds worst tourist so while I have been to many countries, I haven’t done a lot of traveling around, just working and partying. I tend to overstay my time on tiny tropical, party-mad islands so being a dive instructor is the perfect job for me.

About me: Originally from London, but I’ve spent most of the last five years exploring the world as a solo female traveler. Along the way, I developed a soft spot for Latin America – the changing landscapes, the food, and the culture. In 2014, I became a divemaster in Utila, Honduras and it was then I realized dream jobs do exist. At the beginning of 2018, I found myself on Isla Mujeres and I loved it so much, I decided to stay! Now I split my time between working in the dive center and teaching yoga on Playa Norte.​​

About me: I was born in Spain but lived most of my life in Germany. Was working for 12 years for a TV station, then got tired of it, packed my stuff and went traveling. Since a few years, I kind of cannot leave Isla Mujeres, I tried it, but I always came back. I must admit, I am more an office-girl and just started with the diving since I am working here for Pocna Dive Center. So, exciting new

experiences are waiting for me out there in the sea!

About me:

I was born in Granada, a beautiful city in the south of Spain. Combining both my passion for philosophy together with my love for the ocean has taken me to travel and teach diving for the last 9 years around this complex world we are living in. Originally focused to be a sociology teacher the surprising path of life has taken me to scuba dive in Isla Mujeres. Come with me and dare to unveil some of that magic hidden beneath the surface.

Dove In: Isla Mujeres, Mexico

Favorite Isla Mujeres sites:  the musa, manchones reef, C58 barco hundido, cueva del tiburón dormido

Most memorable diving moment: en la inmersión después del Barco hundido, fuimos a un arrecife donde vimos Rayas águilas, morenas en unas cuevas y al asenso vimos una raya pasando y al mismo tiempo por otro lado una mamá delfín con su bebé delfín nadando a lado de ella. Fue una experiencia y sensación increíble e inolvidable !

About Me: soy del Puerto de Veracruz, México. El buceo me gusta por que me encanta el Mar y todo el mundo submarino, el estar en movimiento constante y adquirir nuevas experiencias de vida, como también adquirir nuevos conocimientos para saber la importancia del porque debemos conservar y respetar el océano en nuestro planeta.
