Natural Habitat Adventures

Lilia Gonzalez

Lilia was born and raised in Mexico City. Even as a young child, she showed a keen interest in the ocean and its creatures, especially whales and dolphins. Her passion continued into young adulthood as she pursued academic studies in biology, ecology and wildlife conservation. Since then, Lilia has collaborated on different research projects in Mexico focused on a variety of species including marine mammals, birds and monarch butterflies. Driven to explore wild lands and waters farther afield, Lilia headed to the southernmost sector of the Americas, where she combined the expertise gained through her biology degree with her enthusiasm for teaching in a position as a naturalist guide in Patagonia. From the Strait of Magellan to Cape Horn, Lilia has enthusiastically taken guests to see penguins, sea lions, whales, dolphins, albatross and more. Her affection for the nature, culture and traditions of her home country eventually lured her back to Mexico's Pacific coast,  however, where she is currently a Nat Hab Expedition Leader guiding guests on excursions with humpback whales and dolphins in Banderas Bay off Puerto Vallarta.

Upcoming Adventures with Lilia: 
Kingdom of the Monarchs
