Positive experiences and memories that you will never forget are about the only things we take away! Traveling gives us the chance to discover this. I've lead trips in Costa Rica and some other countries, for more than 10 years. I know first hand what people are looking for and what makes the holiday unique,

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in adventure holidays, cycling, hiking, whitewater rafting, zip-lining, all over Costa Rica, from the cloud forests in Monteverde to the white sand beaches in Manuel Antonio."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Son of an adventure guide, all I could think about when I was a child was to join my father on a trip. I started guiding trips at the age of 18 and never stopped. With many years of leading trips, I have the expertise to put together great experiences for everyone."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I have probably run the Pacuare River more than 100 times! Every time I go down the river I feel as excited as the first time. Paddling down the rapids while you see, extensive vegetation, waterfalls, wildlife, and having an amazing time, makes it a unique trip, especially if you make it into a 2-day trip and spend the night at El Nido del Tigre Campsite.
