Traveling is part of my family story, from making great memories with my relatives to sharing moments with locals. It, thus, grew naturally as a professional career to pursue. The desire and need to share my experience of a country, a culture and a vibe with others are my motivations. I invite you then to come and experience the “Pura Vida” as I know it and make it your own.

“Traveling: it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” That’s my motto, who’s ready to become a storyteller?

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"A small country in terms of size but huge in terms of variety of landscapes! Costa Rica is a perfect getaway destination to go back to nature. Forests, volcanoes, sunny beaches, a rich fauna and flora are all ready to take your breath away. Couples? Families? Friends? This country awaits all of you."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started visiting the world at the age of 10. Growing up, I realized that I had to make traveling my job and so after high school, I took a 5-year diploma in tourism. Jobs followed from Morocco to Bali, while also going back to France. I’ve gained enough experience to settle down in Costa Rica, the country where Life is Pure (Pura Vida)."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Leaving the Pacific Coast to the Savegre Rio, I drove an hour on a track of what looked like “no man’s land”. And as I drove deeper into nature, alone behind the wheel of my Jeep, following the occasional road sign, I eventually reached my destination by sunset. Imagine my delight when I discovered my shelter for the night: a luxurious tent in the middle of nowhere with only the sound from afar animals for company. Early the next morning, I got myself ready for a challenging rafting session on the rough river: memories for a lifetime! Those 24h away from the “real world” were enough for me to fall in love with Costa Rica."
