Mexitreks was founded in Sayulita by Stephen Pomeroy. A native of California, Stephen discovered his love for the natural environment while studying environmental sciences and guiding for his university adventure company. From there, Stephen moved to Costa Rica where he studied eco-tourism at the University of Costa Rica and worked on conservation projects in the Osa Peninsula which assisted in the protection of local jaguar populations.
Stephen moved to Sayulita, Mexico in 2007 and fell in love with not just its surrounding natural beauty, but with the amazing community of people that makes Sayulita the special place that it is today. During his first four years in Sayulita, Stephen developed and taught the environmental education curriculum at a local primary school (CVIS). This allowed him to spend countless hours hiking through the back country while learning from the locals who have a vast knowledge of flora and fauna of the surrounding forests.
Stephen has years of experience as a field guide in many different countries, climates, and terrains. He is Wilderness First Aid certified and bilingual in English and Spanish. Stephen also has a wide knowledge of the local flora and fauna and knowledge about the historical culture of the area. Now he wants to share this knowledge with you! Stephen is also deeply committed to giving back to his community; this is why Stephen is not only an active member of the community, but he also donates a portion of all tours to various environmental initiatives and community non-profits in Sayulita.
