The Cocotinos name was chosen for two reasons. Firstly, “Coco” refers to the abundance of coconut trees in North Sulawesi. Secondly, “tinos” is the nickname of Martinus Wawanda, one of the most famous dive guides in North Sulawesi. By including his nickname, we give recognition to the local dive guides who helped make Manado a world-class destination for divers.
Martinus or Tinos has put in years of hard work, gaining valuable experience along the way and rising through the ranks. He is now known to all our valued guests as the down-to-earth and personable General Manager of Cocotinos Manado.
