Mar y Sierra Dive Team





Dive instructor and guide


Manuela left the fashion world of her native Milan, Italy to embrace the underwater life of a dive instructor and five years ago, she has chosen Cabo Pulmo as her home.


Known as the "frogfish whisperer", she will find a lot more creatures of all size and color than you can imagine! 


She likes to dive slow and enjoy exploring the reefs she practically visits every day! 


When not diving, you will find her still in the water freediving!


She also practices yoga.
