Hi, I'm Lester Ruiz

I’m originally from Nicaragua, but I moved to Costa Rica when I was seven years old. I’ve lived in La Fortuna (in the Arenal Volcano area) for the past twenty-two years and consider it one of the best locations in the entire country. I started working in tourism in 2004. I initially worked as a receptionist in a local hotel for three years—while here I learned lots about customer service and tourism management. I eventually accepted a position as the Front Desk Manager at another hotel in 2008. This was challenging, but I became well acquainted with managing a staff and business operations. It prepared me for what came next. In 2009, I was hired by Anywhere Costa Rica. I was very happy, because I knew that it was a well-known local company where everybody wanted to work! The training here was challenging but enjoyable, and I soon began helping customers, which I loved. Over the past five years, I have helped create an array of unforgettable trips for my customers. When I talk to my university colleagues I always tell them that I love what I do. I love sharing Costa Rica with travelers from around the world. I use my own experience and knowledge to craft incredible experiences for our clients. I’ve traveled throughout most of Costa Rica. My favorite places include Playa Conchal—it’s a beach where the sand is composed of millions of tiny crushed shells. I also love Caño Island, because it has some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the country. While here, I saw whitetip reef sharks, sea turtles, and dolphins. This is a must-visit place in Costa Rica. I'm married and have a beautiful daughter named Luna (her name means "moon" in Spanish). Luna is nine years old and I love spending time with her. I also have two French poodles and enjoy gardening, jogging, and playing soccer.
Lester was SO helpful. He made our trip great and helped us tailor our Honeymooon to what fit our interests and budget.
Lester was fantastic! He answered 100s of questions, made lots of adjustments to my itinerary, heard my concerns and interests, and was always available to help - and this was even before he knew I would actually book/purchase anything! Never once did I feel like I asked a dumb question or that I was a bother. The service was so SO much better than I expected.
Lester is extremely professional and was a delight to work with. His commitment to his work makes the overall experience a pleasure.
Lester was awesome! Easy to work with and very accessible. He helped to plan our destinations based on my desires for the vacation and it turned out great!
Thank you Lester for all of your wonderful suggestions!! We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
