About This Guide

Hola amigos! I wil be delighted to sshow you my beautiful country and its wonderful nature. The uniqueness of our culture, the magnificence of Poas Volcano, Arenal Volcano, Monteverde and the little secret places that only us the locals know about!! I am a certified tour director, travel and event planner from the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) from San Francisco, California. ITMI is know as the premier training institute for tour and travel professionals since 1976.   I started my career in tourism at the age of 7 years old with my parrot, greeting the tourist that came to the oxcart factory next to my house in the small mountain town of Sarchi, Costa Rica. Since then I dreamed of working with foreigners and help them have a great vacation in my country. Regardless of my humble beginnings by age 18 I had moved this vision into a reality. I was accepted to Costa Rica’s premier University for Ecotourism studies. After graduation I began to work with the Costa Rica government Tourists Board rating hotels and beaches for sustainability. I learned a lot and saw a lot through that experience, although as time went on my joy for the work receded. Working for the government showed me situations that conflicted with my values. An opportunity arose to join a startup, GameChangers 500. The focus was on rating the world’s top purpose-driven companies and my experience in hotel sustainability rating was a fit. Through this experience I’ve also become much more aware of the social and environmental challenges our world faces and am committed to being part of the solution. I am also a workshop and retreat facilitator. I have taught workshops in Canada, USA and Costa Rica.This year I facilitated my first retreat at world famous Blue Spirit Costa Rica where women from USA, Mexico , Chile and Costa Rica attended. Women from all ages and all paths of life come to my workshops/ retreats. I am very passionate abour working with woman to remember the Womb Wisdom and I offer that in my workshops and retreats. I am a menstrual and menopause educator and help woman understand how to use the different phases of their menstrual cycle and menopause for lifeserving purposes. I am also a firewalk instructor so if you want to include that in your tour I can offer that to you too!! Looking forward to meet you soon!
