"Choose a job that you like and you will not have to work"
I chose this job because by making others enjoy I also enjoy myself.
I have been working in tourism for around twelve years, in which I have had the opportunity to live unique and wonderful experiences.
I am a professional tour guide and also a tour driver. Since I was young I am a coffee grower and as a child my parents taught me this beautiful job. I am currently a member of a coffee cooperative and this is one of my passions. This makes me very proud to know that coffee was the first export product that boosted the development of Costa Rica.
Joining ToursByLocals increases my expectations since every day I have more intentions to make known roots of my country as culture, customs, and gastronomy. Besides the rich nature that permeates every corner that I have traveled. It makes me feel happy and even better to be able to transmit to the people who visit us that quality of the pure Costa Rican being. Thanks to my parents and grandparents who taught me the values for life and what we occupy for power in a clean and natural environment and above all not forgetting our roots. I offer you through my trips a list to choose and live pleasant moments in my country. And that these do become memories and stories for your families and friends when you return home.
A Recent Review of this guide
Jose is a very knowledgeable guide and he truly enjoys giving tours, which makes the tour more enjoyable. He loves his country and can tell you a lot about the areas where you will visit and the flora and fauna you may see. If I make it back this way, I will definitely take another trip with Jose; not only for the tour, but because we parted as friends. I cannot say enough about how great the trip was with Jose. I will recommend only him to friends and family coming to Costa Rica. He is great! Pura Vida!
