Carmona, guanacaste, Costa Rica

Hello, dear (amigos) friends, I am here to help you, to discover my country, so you can see it through local eyes.

You can enjoy more, since you will be less worried, about the unknown that most people suffer while traveling, and more excited about the upcoming events along the day's tour!

I have been experiencing Costa Rica as a professional local facilitator for more than ten years, so with me as your local guide there will be no worries about: car condition, driving, spotting wildlife, bird watching, finding local tours, knowing where to find grocery stores or drug stores, finding the nicest roads to travel, doing research on local history, interpreting the geography and weather conditions, facing dangerous situations, having a first aid kit and medical assistance if needed, getting on time to all the attractions and activities.

Some of our activities may include: wildlife watching, interpretation of natural trails in national parks; visiting important local people who are involved in the preservation of our cultural heritage; visiting landmarks; photography sessions; donating different goods to local kids and schools; boat trips to islands in the Nicoya Gulf; visiting organic farms and rural projects, swimming in the Pacific ocean; alcohol-free picnics; soft walks of no more than two miles long through the tropical cloud forest; hiring adventure tours as rock climbing, canopy, horseback riding, aerial tram, river floating, zip lining, white water rafting, and much much more. . .

Welcome to Costa Rica!
Pura Vida!

A Recent Review of this guide

Henry (and his brother Dennis, who drove us everywhere) are great guides. Henry knows his subject matter well and kept us from the busy crowds so we could see as much as possible. We toured with him in both Monteverde (where a highlight of the trip was a giant hollowed out ficus tree we could climb on the inside) and Arenal. He is passionate about what he does and spotted many, many animals, birds and plants we would have otherwise missed. He is knowledgeable and patient. You can't go wrong with Henry.
