El Aguilon is like a big family and everyone pulls together to keep it looking its best.
Rodrigo & Belinda
Rodrigo is an oceanographer and Belinda does the filming, so when they are not working in El Aguilon, they are usually in the middle of the ocean investigating plastics in the ocean or in the mountains of Baja California in search of ancient cave paintings of marine life.
Both are very hands-on with the running of El Aguilón and enjoy having guests - many of them have become friends, returning year after year.

A professional portrait artist, Belinda's daughter Sophie, also helps with bookings and wedding enquiries. Sophie and Belinda are very creative and can often be found in their art studio in El Aguilón.

Adolfo is a vital part of the team, in charge of the maintenance and gardens of El Aguilón. He is married to Toñi, the housekeeper, and has spent his life in the nearby town of Facinas.
A real countryman, he is an excellent rider and continues working with many of the traditional crafts of Andalusia, such as building stone walls, making charcoal, curing olives and keeping goats, chickens and a large vegetable garden.
Toñi is a ray of sunshine, always smiling! She manages the cleaning, housework and cooking. Toñi grew up near El Aguilón in the next valley. She is married to Adolfo and they have two young daughters, so Toñi loves it when El Aguilon is full of children. She was raised in the country helping her father with his herd of goats. Her mother taught her how to cook classic Andalusian food.
As a true countrywoman, she can ride a horse, milk a goat, and prepare fish and game. She and Adolfo live in the town (Facinas).
