I am a proud Costa Rican. I was raised in Monteverde, where I was surrounded by nature and lived a traditional tica lifestyle. I began working with tourism while I was still in high school, and I now have over nine years of experience in this field. This career has helped me meet people from around the world and also make new friends within my own country. I have had the opportunity to help families travel throughout the country and experience the best that Costa Rica has to offer. My favorite memory from this job was when I helped a couple plan a vacation. We began communicating and after a few phone calls I was informed that they would elope and come get married in Costa Rica. They were here soon and no one in their family knew. They helped them get married in Manuel Antonio. I am fortunate to have visited most of Costa Rica. My favorite places are Manuel Antonio, Monteverde, and Jacó; I try to return to these destinations as often as possible. I feel blessed to live in beautiful La Fortuna and enjoy views of the Arenal Volcano from my home.
