I learned to love tourism in my hometown of Monteverde. I grew up surrounded by nature and loved spending time outside. During holidays, my family would go hiking in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve or visit waterfalls. I studied ecological tourism in high school and have had the opportunity to visit many places in Costa Rica. I later studied interior design and also worked in the accounting department at the Selvatura Park in Monteverde. At Anywhere Costa Rica, I work as part of the Operations and Product Team. I’m attracted to a career in tourism because it’s an industry that’s always changing—it’s fun to try and keep up with it! Also, it feels great to help travelers experience Costa Rica and return home with wonderful memories. I love the beaches and culture along Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast. The food here is incredible, especially the Caribbean-style chicken. I also recently visited Panama—Panama City is amazing, and the San Blas Islands have incredible snorkeling and scuba diving. Family is very important for me. I am married and have a son, who I love to play with. In my spare time I enjoy reading and exercising.
