I was born and raised in Costa Rica and I am very passionate about my country! The culture, nature, and adventure that you can experience are the things that keep me here. I love the outdoors, when I am not on my bicycle you can find me hiking in a national park. As an avid traveler myself, I always want to encourage and help people to travel and discover the world.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"The whole country of Costa Rica and I specialize in culture, nature, adventure activities and luxury travel for honeymooners and couples."
How did you get involved in travel?
"When I was a little kid, I was always traveling with my family, but when I was 18 years old, I got to spend a year in Germany where I fell in love with learning all about a new culture and discovering new places. Once I was back in Costa Rica, I knew that I had to get involved with tourism so I made the decision to go to Uni and study Sustainable tourism."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"One travel experience that I will never forget was when I was hiking in the Talamanca Mountain Range, I was sleeping in my tent and the local guide woke me up in the morning because he had found a Quetzal nest and there were many birds flying around. The Quetzal is one of my favorite birds and that was the first time I got to see it in person. It was very exciting!"

Great with a couple of early issues. 4 1/2 stars, really.
Jul 12 - Jul 21, 2022
This was tough to judge. Would like to give 4 1/2 stars. We had some issues and frustrations, particularly at the start of the trip. But - those all seemed to stem from the fact that KimKim had to swap out our representative a day or two before our trip started. As a result, some things got dropped or mis-communicated. Once we got further into the trip, things were much more smooth. All in all, it meant our arrival and first night were bumpy, and the start of the second day was messy, but... read more
Honeymoon in Costa Rica
Apr 25 - May 3, 2022
The planning and booking process was very easy. Alberto was very quick to answer all my questions and make the small changes we where asking for. We wanted a mix of adventure and relaxing down time for our honeymoon. The Hanging bridges in Arenal experience was great, Marcos was a very knowledgeable guide of all the animals and very enthusiastic. Rosa was our guide to Rio Celeste and she was also very knowledgeable. Orjel in the Cloud forest in Monteverde was very fun and we even got to see... read more

Mar 16 - Mar 30, 2022
Alberto arranged an incredible holiday for us. All the transfers and activities went very smoothly and we found Costa Rica to be a beautiful and friendly country with so much to see and do.
We visited Arenal, Tortuguero, Monteverde, Manuel Antonio and Bahia Drake and we enjoyed each and every one of them. The local guides are excellent and very knowledgeable.
In terms of accommodation Las Caletas in Bahia Drake is paradise.
Thank you for arranging such a fantastic holiday Alberto! read more
Add Costa Rica to your bucket list!
Dec 29 - Jan 15, 2022
My husband and I had the privilege of spending three weeks in Costa Rica and Alberto and the Kim Kim team made this trip a complete dream come true! I was a bit nervous about all the excursions and accommodations and travel plans as we stayed at 6 different spots and rented a car in a country we don't speak the language on (and Murphy's law is something is bound to happen) but NO! Everything was organized to perfection and by the most friendly people ever! We did not have a single issue and... read more
Pura Vida with GWA
Dec 6 - Dec 16, 2021
Our trip to Costa Rica was one of the best trips I've ever been on, and it's all thanks to the wonderful people at GWA. This is the first time we've let a tour company plan basically our entire trip and we couldn't have been more pleased with the results!
Our contact was Alberto who was knowledgeable, polite, friendly and very accommodating of all our tweaks and changes. It really felt like the success of our trip was important to both Alberto and the rest of the staff at GWA. Alberto worked... read more
Trip was as planned
Dec 16 - Dec 24, 2021
Trip was as planned. All scheduled transfers showed up within (10 to 20 minutes) of the scheduled times. Organization of the trip was easy with Alberto.
As far as the trip itself, Costa Rica is a great place to visit, however; going from place to place is taxing. Our normal car ride was 3+ hours. This was expected for the places we choose, however; looking back on it we spent too much time getting from place to place and not enough time seeing relaxing on our vacation. For a week long... read more
The Best Honeymoon Ever
Dec 10 - Dec 19, 2021
We trusted Alberto, Diego (with GWA, who will be one of your main contacts once you're in CR), and KimKim as a whole with our honeymoon, and they knocked it out of the park. Booking everything was seamless, as we were able to adjust lodging and activities to fit our desired budget and pacing of the trip. Alberto was exceptionally responsive and accurate with his information. Every tour guide, every transfer/ride, and every hotel/resort were exactly what we'd hoped for. We ended up with the... read more

Costa Rica is a true tropical paradise with an incredible flora and fauna. Our trip was filled with endless breathtaking views and experiences. And the people were incredibly friendly, courteous and helpful. Thank you so much to Alberto, all of our guides and drivers, and Kimkim for making our trip to Costa Rica so well-planned and smooth. Everything went according to plan. The communication with Alberto was without any problems, and he came up with a really nice itinerary for us after two... read more
Amazing trip to Costa Rica! Easy, fun and beautiful

Thank you so much to the kimkim team and Alberto for organizing such an amazing trip to Costa Rica! We got to go to 3 amazing and beautiful areas ( Fortuna, Monteverde and Playa Carillo) and try a number of fun and exciting activities. Transports, transfers and activities were extremely organized and easy. We loved Rob our hilarious guide for the Pacuare river rafting and 1968 hiking tour in Arenal with Hansel through Desafio - just incredible. Playa Carillo was gorgeous and not crowded.

Overall, a terrific trip to Costa Rica, arranged by Alberto.
Diego at GWA was fantastic and helped on the couple of times we needed his assistance.
Only issue was a "no-show" for one of our activities when it had to be re-scheduled due to weather and Diego worked wonders to find a new guide and complete our activity. read more
Highly recommend Green World Adventures and kimkim.com travel!
Feb 24 - Mar 5, 2020
We recently used kimkim.com for our recent 11-day trip in late February/early March, 2020 to Costa Rica. Alberto Molina, the local specialist, was really easy to work with and easy to contact with any questions. A few days into our trip, we had a few questions and Karol with Green World Adventures, and she was very quick to get back with us. She helped us several times during our trip and adjusted our tours when we had questions. She was always handy and helpful.
The following tour guides... read more
