Where did you grow up?
I was born here on Santa Cruz Island and this is also where I grew up, surrounded by the most unique wildlife on earth.

What’s your favourite sport or activity?
My love for sports such as surfing, skateboarding, snorkelling with sharks, mountain biking and everything related with the outdoors has helped me to keep in touch with the amazing national park we have here.

Your dream destination?
I´d love to go to South Africa to learn the culture and enjoy the wildlife, which is my passion…

One sentence that sums you up?
I am extremely fond of nature, which is why I love what I do.

Most delicious meal that you can cook?
I´m good at cooking seafood… especially seafood ceviche.

One tip for our travellers?
Once you get here, you will realize the animals are not tame but still harmless and friendly. You will have the chance to take with you the memories of your experience and you will feel the power of the Islands that change the world… 



“Zambo was superb: knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a very likeable guy. He had great authority but wasn't overbearing. I loved the pride he had for his homeland and he really imparted how important the preservation of the environment is to all Galapagos residents. ”
- Gillian Lane (Boston, Massachusetts, United States), Iguana March 2018

“Zambo was the greatest guide I ever could have hoped for. He was so knowledgeable, energetic, and truly wanted to ensure we had a great time. I am so so SO incredibly happy with Zambo and would recommend him to any friends that decided to go to the Galapagos.”
- Alanna Thompson (Smithville, Ontario, Canada), Tortuga August 2017

“Zambo was outstanding. He was clear in his directions, he paid attention to everyone in the group and knew a great deal about all aspects of the natural environment: wildlife, geology, etc.”
- Tom Ward (Weston, Massachusetts, United States), Tortuga December 2016
