Karol Gomez

I was born and raised in Cartago, I have an Ecotourism degree, I truly love to travel because I love admiring all the nature and wildlife possible, I love the color of the rainforest, all the flora and fauna there. I started in this field since I was a child when I was part of the Boys and Girls Scout group, where I love going camping and hiking through the forest, and later decided to study tourism as a professional career.
I really like to help visitors to discover the Costa Rica that I love.
I spend my free time hiking in new places, with my family, meeting great spots for watching a spectacular sunset or just hanging out with new people.
One of my favorite places in my country is San Gerardo de Dota, the home of the Quetzal, and the area of the Irazu Volcano, where you can find the best landscapes of the Central Valley.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Costa Rica and I specialize in adventure, nature, ecotourism, culture, and honeymoon. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have always been a nature lover and for great places to enjoy the sunset with my family. After several years in the boys and girls scout, I started to get more involved in the tourism field by traveling to different areas in my country Costa Rica when I was at the University.
I enjoy sharing with locals their knowledge about traditions and nature. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One travel that I really enjoyed was a 4 days hike from Santa Maria de Dota to Quepos, on the Pacific side. I did it when I was at the University, it was a whole experience, It has been the longest hike that I ever have done. I did camping in the middle of the forest, I could see the Tapir footprint there and for finalizing the trip I did for the first time White Water Rafting in Savegre River. "
