About The Host


Santiago resides in Valle de Bravo and hails from a family of passionate mountaineers. Both his grandparents and parents were avid mountaineers and ultra-distance runners. Santiago’s deep-rooted love for nature and physical activity was instilled in him from a young age. For years, he has been engaged in mountain trail running, not merely as a sport but as a means of healing and exploring new horizons.

He has been actively involved in alternative education initiatives, forest therapy, sustainable tourism, and nature guiding for several years. Collaborating with organizations, universities, and the private sector, Santiago believes that transformative experiences in nature can heal our relationship with ourselves and, consequently, with the environment affected by the environmental crisis.

Personally, Santiago is a natural explorer and harbors a boundless curiosity about nature. His passion has led him to set records on many of the country’s highest mountains, including Pico de Orizaba, Iztaccíhuatl, Nevado de Toluca, and Tacaná, among others. When with Santiago, expect engaging conversations about mountains, history, mythology, plants, ecology, and various sensory activities to rejuvenate the body. Santiago is one of our Lead Guides and the creative mind behind many of our “Local Escapes Mexico” experiences.
