About US

What We Do

Plain and simple, make people happy! As a long time traveler myself I have learned, if anything else, one lesson: at the very end, all we have is our memories. The things we have learned, the things we have seen and the memorable people who have crossed our path, either short or long term. So I am going to make sure that you have an unforgettable time.

A bit About Me

When I was very young I was into Oil Painting and Sculpture whilst I was studying Classical Guitar, at around 15 years old became a Music Teacher with a Master in Harmony and Composition. By the time I was 17 it was time for a new cycle in my life and I went to race cars in Formula 4 for a couple of years, I was always into sports, with Tennis being the constant, I went to the States to study Architecture and play tennis for my University. After living in Manhattan for about 12 Years I started to go around the world with the Argentine Tango and still going after more than 25 years.

About PTC Riviera

Pasional Tango Club has been around for about 20 years. I could not talk about PTC without mentioning Rosa Forte-Berg who is the Co-Founder of Pasional NYC, Buenos Aires, Paris, Rome, Benidorm and lastly Vienna. We both believe that life is about cycles and it was time to start a new one but this time in separate ways. Rosa decided to continue with Pasional Tango Club Vienna and I decided to follow the Sun!
Since 2014 I have lived in Bali, Indonesia, where I taught and performed Argentine Tango along side Claudia "La Tana" Manzella, after two years moved to Zanzibar by the Indian Ocean where I Co-Founded with a great Yoga Master and a passionate tango dancer, Marisa "Pampita" van Vuuren our famous Tango and Yoga Retreats.
Destiny, life, the Sun, finally brought me to the Riviera Maya and the Caribbean Sea to continue with Pasional Tango Club Riviera and build the Tango Retreats in Paradise. So here we are, the end of my trip (for now) and could be very well the beginning of yours! Get your hat, tango shoes, flip-flops and the Sun tan lotion, come to Paradise and start collecting your memories!
