Eduardo (Lalo) Ruiz

Whitewater Paddling Instructor, Expedition guide, Chef Lalo

A native of the highlands of Mexico City, Lalo has followed the summer season around the globe, guiding and instructing for the last 24 years in the U.S.A., Costa Rica, Panama, Brazil, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Canada, and Mexico. Lalo loves to be on the water on any craft and finds it incredibly rewarding to share his love for rivers and outdoors with people new to the whitewater world.

He loves to see the beginners he taught in an eddie—there is nothing more rewarding than that.

When Lalo isn’t instructing, you can find him mountain biking, kayaking, cross country and downhill skiing in “la Belle Province” or planning his next adventure.
