Meet the Crew: Erick


Hola, que tal? My name is Erick and I am a beachaholic. I am 100% Mexicano. I was born in Veracruz but spent half of my life in Playa del Carmen.
 
Playa is my home. Almost all of my family moved here, which makes me a very fortunate man.  


12 years ago, I fell in love with a Dutch girl and we got married almost 6 years ago. El Mexicano con la Holandesa, who would have ever expected that? Definitely not me! 


We have travelled through Europe and lived about a year and a half in Canada. We truly enjoyed it there, but it was too cold. In 2006, we decided to stay in Mexico permanently. Following that, my wife’s family also moved here, so that makes it even more special. We are all together. We have a beautiful son of almost 4 years old.

Since moving here, I have been working in the hotel industry, starting from the bottom, moving my way up with lots of energy and motivation toward a higher position. For the past 9 years I have worked in one of the most beautiful adult-only, all-inclusive resorts of Playa del Carmen, managing the front service area including concierge, reception, butler and bellboy department. 

Recently, I became General Manager for H2Oh! Sun Cruises. I was glad. I was ready for a new adventure, a new challenge and this job gives me plenty of opportunities to do what I like most: making sure that the people who visit this beautiful country have the best time of their lives so that they will return to Mexico and recommend us to family and friends! 

I love Mexico, I love the music, I love the different cultures, I love the beach, I love everything that has to do with the ocean, I love the hot weather, I truly love life and I love to see people happy!  

A big philosophy of mine is that a beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment we start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel and BE like one! For sure, mine is!

It will be my pleasure to assist you with any questions or concerns you have, prior to this beautiful day trip and I will be at your service for anything you need so that this day will be BEST DAY of your vacation!
 
What made you choose coming to Mexico? What do you like about it? 

Su Amigo (Your friend),
Erick
