Originally from Vancouver, Stu had spent years working with resorts, resort real estate developments and luxury hotel brands. Once, while consulting for a Five-Star hotel in Hawaii, he was asked to rush overnight to a luxury resort in the Caribbean and, after traveling halfway around the world, he awoke the next morning in a nearly identical environment. Looking to make a career change, Stu wanted to find a way to help the independent traveler. Before moving to San Jose del Cabo, Stu spent two years living in Mexico City. He fell in love with the country of Mexico – but not the all-inclusive “spring break” style resorts that define how most travelers experience the country. Stu decided that he wanted to change that experience.
