About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Speak 5 languages, to have my own Travel Agency specialized in Latin America and travel around the world. To be happy in the unique life I have.

ABOUT ME

- I moved to Vienna, Austria after getting married with my austrian girlfriend last 2019. We have a little girl born in 2019 too.
- Professional in Sustanaible Tourism Management (Tourist Guide incl.). I like different languages and speak 3 (Spanish - English - German).
- I worked as professional trilingual Tourist Guide (freelance) in Costa Rica and provide sustainable tourist consultancies for travelers interested in Mesoamerica.
- Besides, I was part of an NGO oriented to intercultural exchange trough volunteering, named ACI Costa Rica (ICYE worldwide), sending Costa Rican people abroad and receiving foreigners.

- In Vienna, before COVID crisis, I used to work as Travel Agent for Latin America & Caribbean. Currently in trilingual customer service for a sustainable austrian company.

I enjoy meeting foreigners, show and talk about my beautiful country (Costa Rica). At the same time I like to learn about different cultures, where they come from,deep conversations, etc.

I'm a football fan of Manchester United and England national team.

I´ve been in Europe, Central America and lived 1 year in Switzerland, since August 2012 until August 2013, doing a volunteer work with kids in a Care Center in Bern. Total: 21 countries.

Finally, I love History, Intercultural topics, Global Citizens, Travel topics, sustainable tourism and I enjoy to eat/try meals from different countries/areas. Passionate of good beers.

PHILOSOPHY

There is more time than life.

The world is like a book, if you dont travel, you will just read one page. Money returns, time doesn´t.

Do what makes you happy, with passion and enjoying it, however, enjoy the life doesn´t mean, do stupid things. Responsibility.
