I am a motorcycle and marine engine mechanic and have learned to fix just about anything mechanical. I grew up in Switzerland and I am married to a Costa Rican woman and we have three children. I am in charge of making sure the boats and all other mechanical items work so that you don’t have problems while staying at Pirate Cove. I am also a scuba diver and one of the original three partners who actually built the hotel at the edge of the rainforest, when there were no lights and no modern comforts that you will hopefully during your stay with us.
I was born 1965 in Switzerland. My spirit of adventure and diving Brought me 1992 the first time to Drake Bay. I love diving ,horseback riding and my biological garden nearby. I am responsible of staff, groceries, the kitchen, organizing tours and more...I enjoy my work in this beautiful area.
I was born in Colombia, I came to Costa Rica at the invitation of a Natural Reserve in Costa Rica and stayed, It has been a wonderful experience, now I have 10 years of living in Costa Rica and I have my home here, I'm the manager of the Hotel in office in San Jose and I will answer your emails and answer your questions before coming to Drake Bay. I like the mountains and the sea, my daughters really enjoy the beach and the river Drake when I go to visit the Hotel.
When I washed up on the beach in Drake Bay and met Susanne and Jose, I knew a good thing when I found it. I love nature, scuba diving (I am a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor) and our little corner of paradise. Sadly, for my many sins I have been banished to San Jose to help Lilian (the love of my life) with the administration, which I hate and am absolutely useless doing.
I was born in La Palma in Puerto Jimenez on July 8, 1973, I like Christian music and one of my favorite sports is volleyball, 10 years ago I came to Drake Bay. I am married and I have 2 children, I'm also the nature study 2 years with the Neotropica Foundation and INA for forest guide. Currently working at the reception of Hotel Pirate Cove, l help to organize tours and office, also will attend as needed. I am very satisfied because here also we are implementing environmentally friendly practices to protect this beautiful natural paradise such as Drake Bay.
