Adriana Galindo de Moser is a good person to have in your corner. You might not see her around the shop very often, but without her this project would not have been possible. She plays a very important rule in the whole organization of Cabo Trek handling important essentials like public relations, communications, operations management and last but not least moral support. The baby (Valentina) in her hands is our biggest motivation to get up in the morning and give our best each and every day!
CaboTrek was founded by Philipp Moser, a true world trekker who has lived and worked in many exotic locations such as Thailand, Nigeria, and different parts of Central America. He’s a professional and energetic Austrian entrepreneur with lots of passion for the ocean and the environment. He first came to Cabo in 2011 for a planned “short period of time”, but amazed with the surrounding natural beauty, decided to make it his permanent home. For this reason he created CaboTrek. Supported by an incredible team of incredible people who share his same vision, passion, and enthusiasm for the oceans and great outdoors.
