"After studying tourism in school for three years, I have worked as a travel professional for almost a decade. Hola! I'm Yahaira, and having worked for hotels, adventure companies, and travel agencies, I can easily say that what I like best about my job is that I get to help people create beautiful memories.
It's so nice to have people tell you that they had a great time in Costa Rica. I spend so much time getting to know the people I'm helping that some of my clients even come by the office to say, ""Hi!"" or ""Thank you!"" I've had clients return to Costa Rica several years in a row, and it's a treat to be able to work with them year after year — planning new adventures.
I live in La Fortuna and love nature, but I'm privileged to have visited many beautiful destinations in Costa Rica. My favorite parks are Chirripoó National Park, and Corcovado National Park. My family — which includes a very active son — loves getting outdoors, and my mother (a wonderful cook) and I usually meet once a week to make different meals. I can recommend some great cooking classes for you to learn how to make gallo pinto, olla de carne, and tamales — just like we do! We live 'Pura Vida,' and with the right vacation, you can too!"
