Customer Service

I was born in the City of Puebla. I came to Playa del Carmen to vacation several times since 1998, until 2005 when I decided to stay to live permanently. In love with the natural beauty of the Mexican Caribbean and its surroundings, I finished my high school studies here to then enter college and graduate in Administration and Tourist Development. I started working on the media (radio, magazines and newspapers) and later moved to the field of real estate and closing services.
