Diego Rivera

Hi, I'm Diego a Costa Rican travel expert with more than 13 years of experience. I consider myself a culture lover, a person who loves to listen to my travelers and I create the best experiences for every single customer with a touch of passion.
I have studied sustainable tourism management, and I have a specialty in MICE groups (meetings, incentives, conferences, and events). I love to design trips for families, couples, groups of friends and honeymoons.
I'm a big fan of coffee tasting, I love to practice sports and I try to travel every weekend to different destinations around Costa Rica (I'm very extrovert).
Thank you for giving me the possibility to design a unique travel experience around my beautiful country.
Pura Vida!

"I love to design family vacations, honeymoon trips, I love to mix adventure tours with nature activities, and cultural experiences. Also, I have a specialty in MICE groups (meetings, incentives, conferences, and events). "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I studied sustainable tourism management and since there, I have felt a huge passion for tourism.
I have worked in tour operators a big part of my life, creating the most unique and personalized programs in Costa Rica, for many travelers around the world.
Travel is not an option for me, this is a style of life, and I love to share the knowledge that I have acquired during my experience."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I spent two nights sleeping in the middle of the tropical forest in Pacuare River. After doing a white-water rafting tour at the best river in Costa Rica, I arrived at one of the most luxurious lodges that I have been my entire life. It was a luxury oasis in the middle of the forest, surrounded by waterfalls, walking trails and many adventures. I loved the adrenaline of the white-water rafting, but to spend a night in the middle of the forest is magical and unforgettable. "
