Story
Tagline
I believe I can make a difference in people's lives.
Introduction
I am the CEO of LocoGringo.com.  

I moved to the Riviera Maya in 1992 to explore underwater caves.  Since then I have fallen in love with the people, the culture and the natural environment.  I am committed not only to the Riviera Maya but the local people and businesses of our area.

Loco Gringo began in 1996 in Akumal Mexico, just down the road from Tulum. Loco Gringo is an independent vacation rental reservation service committed to making a difference in your vacation experience whether you are staying in a beach front villa or resort in the Riviera Maya & the Costa Maya.  Our local knowledge and experience helps people like yourself traveling in the area to have a personal adventure. 

I invite you to visit our website LocoGringo.com





 
Bragging rights
One of the first women underwater cave explorers in the Yucatan. My biggest discovery the deepest underwater cave in Quintana Roo, "the Pit" located near Xel Ha, Riviera Maya. Women's Diver Hall of Fame founding member, International Fellow of the Explorers Club. I started one of the first online vacation rental reservation services for the Riviera Maya, LocoGringo.com. I am a guest blogger for Indrani's Light Foundation, committed to educating, teaching, mentoring all aspiring women. Climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money to empower aspiring women of East Africa in small business. Those efforts have turned into a two room school where women learn to sew, and basic skills. The school has been incorporated into a program by UNESCO and another charity in Tanzania to further the services and education of the women.
