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.
