Meet your Captain
Meet Diego, our charismatic boat captain with a heart full of adventure and a soul deeply connected to the natural world. Born and raised on Isla Violines, in the Sierpe river mouth, Diego's life has been intricately woven with the rhythms of nature. His earliest memories include hunting and fishing from a canoe with his father, a gold miner, and living a life that echoed the traditions of his Brunka tribe heritage.
In the twenty years he's been a part of the tourism industry, Diego's passion for the natural world has only deepened. Starting as a boat helper, he honed his skills and knowledge, eventually guiding mangrove tours as a captain. For seven years, he shared his love for the land by guiding horseback riding tours with his own horses, but he is happiest on the ocean.
During the lean tourism seasons, Diego's resilient spirit led him to Puerto Jimenez, where he rode bulls to make ends meet. Now, as our esteemed boat captain, Diego looks forward to sharing his love for nature. His captivating stories and deep understanding of the area promise an unforgettable journey. You can typically recognize him by his handwoven palm hats.
I loved everything about this place, but my personal highlight was the snorkelling tour to Canó Island. Diego was a wonderful guide and captain and showed as more sea turtles and dolphins than I hoped for! it was such a great experience that I even did it twice!
Thanks again to the amazing staff who really made my stay most perfect
Can’t wait to go back to this little paradise!
