Transformed by an around-the-world bike trip in 1987-88, Rob Lerner and Diane Varney have ever since been imbued with an irrepressible urge to “live different.” Drawing on diverse education, career and life experiences, and informed by their shared obsessive attention to detail, Casa Caramba is the latest creation from this dynamic couple. Rob and Diane first moved to Mexico in 1996 after selling their outdoor gear manufacturing business, and continue to manage their vacation rental home El Encanto de Cabo Pulmo
at the National Marine Park in Baja California Sur.
Diane’s discerning eye as an Artist
and collector is evident throughout, featuring original works and prints, plus a distinctive collection of art and handicrafts accumulated over years of Mexico travel. Rob’s keen design sense and environmental sensibility are also on display (see Sustainable
). He is a board member and technical advisor to the local non-profit CATIS-Mexico
and remains active in the field of bioenergy and sustainable enterprise development in Latin America.
