Diego A. Briceno

I was born in San Jose, Costa Rica. One of my favorite things about Costa Rica is it's amazing nature and wildlife, for that reason I love to visit National Parks and take pictures of the landscapes and animals that I see.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in the whole country of Costa Rica and can do nature, adventure, culture and educational trips. Other things that I work with are luxury, honeymoons and groups."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I studied tourism because I always loved the idea of helping people discover my country in a unique way."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One experience that I will never forget is the first time that I saw a leatherback sea turtle, it happened the first time that I visited the Tortuguero Area, I took a night tour to go see turtles and at some point in the middle of the night we saw one, I can't describe how I felt when I saw it, it was a very majestic animal."
