Originally from Veracruz, Paulina arrived in the Riviera Maya in 2007. She was required to do a college internship with a hotel to complete her tourism certification. Paulina finds that working in tourism gives her an opportunity to meet travelers and to learn different languages.
Paulina says the Riviera Maya offers everything to travelers and to people working in tourism. There are beautiful beaches, interesting people, and delicious food. During her time off, she takes short trips to Tulum, Cancun, and Merida, but she always returns to her home in the Riviera Maya. Her home has become a foster house for dogs who need rescuing. Locals and travelers alike take part in animal welfare and rescue efforts.
As the concierge for Loco Gringo, Paulina is able to experience fun activities like snorkeling in the cenotes. She isn’t exactly comfortable in the water yet, but she is enrolling in the Discover Scuba program.
