What is a Marinero?

A sailor, seaman, mariner, or seafarer is a person who navigates waterborne vessels or assists as a crewmember in their operation and maintenance. A sailor travels across the sea for many days and sometimes months to go for the adventure in the open sea.

A sailor also is someone who works on passenger ships, and tanker ships, navigating sea-going vessels and assisting with the maintenance, operation, and service of these vessels. The term sailor was derived from the fact that all water-borne vessels were once powered by sails.
