I was born and raised in a mountainous region in the highlands of the Talamanca Mountain Range. This area is known for being the habitat of the most beautiful bird of the Americas, the Resplendent Quetzal. I've always valued and admired the cloud forest and all the beauties that it offers us. I love walking in the forest and taking pictures of the different birds and plants that surround me and of course, I also enjoy sharing this amazing environment with visitors from all around the world.

"The most special travel experience that I've had in my country was my first visit to Tortuguero National Park. This amazing protected area offers one of the most impressive tropical forests that I could ever imagine. Marine turtles, sloths, iguanas, three different types of monkeys, crocodiles and hundreds of bird species are just a part of the wildlife that I spotted in the wetlands of this little piece of paradise."
