Alberto Molina

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!"

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.

We recently used kimkim.com for our recent 11-day trip in late February/early March, 2020 to Costa Rica.

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 were standouts on our trip:
Felipe with Green World Adventures: Great walking downtown tour of San Jose! He graciously gave us his own recipe of ceviche, and kept us entertained our our drive to and from the airport.
Axel and Victor with Desafio Adventure Pioneers: Hanging Bridges tour, Aerenal Volcano hike and La Fortuna waterfall. What a fun filled day with these guys! They were so accommodating during these fun adventures!
Javier with Iguana tours, our nature guide at Cari-Canche Private Reserve. He was full of knowledge about this beautiful area.
Yenaro Suarez, our guide who conducted our tour at the Don Juan coffee, chocolate and sugar cane plantation. That was such a wonderful, tasty treat!
"Professor" Andres, our very informative nature guide who conducted our tour at Manuel Antonio National Park.
Hector Altamirano of HecTours. He was our ultimate nature guide at Carara National Park. He was a marvelous tour guide, along with our driver Eddie, who spotted the macaws at the very beginning our our trip. This was our last tour and was such a memorable day.
We all hated to leave beautiful Costa Rica, but hopefully will return sometime soon.
