I’m passionate about Costa Rica! I love my country and the variety of things to do here fascinates me. I’m based in one of the best surfing towns on the Guanacaste coast, Marbella. It’s a multicultural place where we are very aligned with nature and healthy living. Here you are able to experience the authentic Costa Rican lifestyle of Pura Vida. The best thing about this place is that you are in a location where you can see and experience a lot by moving either south or north. If you like adventure and new experiences, this might be your place too! I practice yoga every day and on an ideal day I try to practice twice, on waking up and after watching the sun set. Sunsets are crucial for me so no matter if I’m at the beach or on a mountain I will find a spot to watch the sunset. For me the main point of traveling is seeing places through a local’s eyes: you want to get to know the place not from the tourist perspective, but the local one. If what you are looking for is an experience, an adventure, getting to see a different culture, definitely pick me to explore the best of this country. "Explore with me!
Travel is freedom and knowledge. It makes you grow as a person. Costa Rica is the best place to visit, you will find everything you are looking for here. There are two "barrios" (neighborhoods) I would show anyone, Barrio Amon and Barrio Escalante. Both filled with awesome restaurants, bars and nice streets to walk around. The amazing thing about San Jose is that everything is close, so we could easily go spend the day at a volcano, horseback riding, mountain, waterfall and even at the beach. I am proud of the way that our sustainable tourism has grown and it is absolutely something I would incorporate in your travel plans. Travel is my passion and I wish I could do it full time. I just became a psychologist and use my spare time to travel and explore Costa Rica. I always find time to volunteer and give back. I think websites mislead tourists. Only a local can help you discover all the hidden gems of Costa Rica. I will be a great companion for you and can show you all best places.Explore with me!
Costa Rica is a diverse country. You can do everything you desire outdoors in the most beautiful place. I live in the Guanacaste region which has the most incredible beaches. I have spent full days beach hoping and discovering new beaches. There are also some amazing waterfalls, bike trails, rivers, volcanoes and hiking in the region. One of the best questions I was asked was by my brother. He asked when I feel the most alive? My answer is after exercise and when I am adventuring and exploring new places. I love adventure, nature and fun! If you truly want a local experience, I do too. Spear Fishing with Ticos, Bike Riding, exploring new trails and waterfalls. I won't do the typical tourist things, I will only take you on adventures I would take my friends on.Explore with me!

Travel to me is way to learn...learn about life, learn about yourself, learn about the other cultures. A way to see how big the world is, how beautiful nature is wherever you go... I love waking up with the sunrise, to different sounds like birds and monkeys, preparing a coffee and siting outside to just relax. I love to drive to a place called playa minas, a secluded beach with blue water... In rainy season I have a waterfall less than 5 min driving from my home so you can find me there when I´m not at home. Monday nights we have an artisan market in flamingo, also many restaurants, live music bars that make it easy to have a fun at night. I am a very enthusiastic person, calm but when nature calls... let's go!! I have a strong connection with nature, always trying to work as a team with it. I love being outdoors, at the beach, ocean, mountains. I am very confident and knowledgeable even someone you can trust when going diving with sharks! I’m really in love with this place! For me exploring it is like a hobby! Going to a volcano, diving, waterfalls, sunsets, animals make my days perfect! I hope I can share all my enthusiasm to you!Explore with me!
Exploring is my passion, besides providing safe driving, and lots of fun. I know my province and city really well. I can take travelers to breathtaking places, that they could only visit with me, because some of the places are not open to the public. I was born in the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose, however I had the blessing of being raised in the paradise or what we call the Gold Coast of Costa Rica, Guanacaste! Being raised here made me a person who loves nature. Being surrounded by a lot of natural resources, living 200 meters from the beach, being raised in an environment of great family union, are all aspects that shaped the person I am today. I love being outdoors, watching sunsets, going for long walks with my dogs, enjoying whole days on the beach, but above all just enjoying the moment and having a Pura Vida time, as we Costa Ricans say!Explore with me!

I’m passionate about life. Travel to me means access to freedom and culture. Costa Rica is a tropical paradise filled with stunning scenery, incredible biodiversity, and thrilling outdoor adventures. Visiting is easy, as it’s a tiny country with big attributes. It’s the most peaceful country in Latin America and once of the most biodiverse places on earth. Our name means Rich Coast, and was given to us by the Spanish explorers who assumed Costa Rica was filled with gold. As a Tico, I love to start my Sunday morning with a trip to la Feria del Agicultor ""Farmers Market"", to buy all my veggies and fruits, and you can never pass up a good Gallo Pinto. I always try to take people who come to Costa Rica to do something different. I’ll take them where no one will take them to have a of taste of the beauty of this place, such as Mercados Locales.Explore with me!

Travel for me is all about adventure and fun. Plain and simple. I currently live in Escazu, San José and I love it here! There is so much to do. From the bustling nightlife of the city to the breathtaking mountains, volcanos, rivers, and waterfalls that surround us! I try to take advantage of everything this city has to offer. Within a 2 hour drive are some of the best surf spots in the world and I happen to have grown up surfing all of them so I can take you to all the secret spots!

Costa Rica is a country that offers nature in many ways at a short driving distance. You can see beautiful volcanoes while on the way to the beach, and spend time in thermal waters and waterfalls on a day trip. My favorite places to go are the most exotic and less visited by tourists. Volcanoes, waterfalls, jungle and beaches all in a short drive. Also Costa Rica has to offer some of the world’s most special hotels, guest houses and parks as well as very good food. I am an organic coffee and banana producer in my farm on the mountains of Tarrazu where I live, located in the higher altitude coffee zone of Costa Rica. I am an outdoor kind of person that loves hiking in the jungle, mountain biking, Kayaking and riding my boat through the islands on the gulf of Nicoya. I like classic cars and boats and use to be a motocross racer for more than 12 years. I know the Country as a whole, I have traveled everywhere and know the best places. My car is a very safe, comfortable and nice to ride in, I know the best restaurants, bars and hotels. I like to dedicate my time to showing the best and least known places in Costa Rica. I am very friendly, and considered, therefore I will always want the best for my friends.Explore with me!

I love sharing my country and culture with people and really enjoy making new connections and just hanging out. I've surfed since I was 7 and now I'm 23. I've also competed but now I'm out of the contest circuit and I'm enjoying being a free surfer again. I like art - I like colours and drawing. I know about food too - I'm always eating everywhere. I love music, nature and I like to be out of the system, living slow and well: seeing the sunset, enjoying the waves. I love to read about El Salvador's history: this is something important for me. My grandma made me feel proud to be Mayan. She showed me how to cook traditional food. I'm connected to my culture and I want to grow that culture, understand the ancestral food, the music, the vibes, the art so that we can all understand it and share it and appreciate and feel it.Explore with me!
I think travel is all about new experiences, challenging yourself to change and to grow. I absolutely love Costa Rica, the thing I love the most is that it’s very small but also has a huge diversity in landscapes and activities. I feel very proud about the efforts that the country has made to preserve nature and wildlife. In the last couple of years the city has become even more interesting for food, drinks and parties. I’m a mechanical engineer but truly that has never defined me. I also have an art side and studied music for several years but I’m also passionate about sports and the outdoors. The water is where I feel the most comfortable, be it in a swimming pool, the ocean, a river or a lake. I love to be surrounded by nature, stay still, do yoga and meditate but I also like to party and dance the whole night away.
