I grew up in the mountainous region of Tarrazu, where the best coffee comes from and where you'd find the only wine estate in Costa Rica.

My first job was as a receptionist at a mountain hotel and then I worked for a travel agency in San Jose. While there, I began my studies in tourism management. I fell in love with the industry and all the amazing experiences I had, and now I’ve already been in the industry for almost my whole life!

Over the last years, I have traveled to many destinations around Costa Rica, like beaches, volcanoes, and rainforests and I love that I can offer these amazing experiences to people from around the globe.

Apart from my own beautiful country, I have traveled to many different places such as Nicaragua, Panama, and Colombia. I like learning about different cultures, languages, and lifestyles, which gives me a strong base to connect with different people all around the world.

Yuliana's Travel Expertise

I specialize in amazing trips and tours all over Costa Rica. I know all the best places to visit and activities to try whether you are into adventure activities like bungee jumping and rafting, or nature and jungle exloration, or cultural programs. I am also able to design trips for different budgets or groups.

I have specific expertise in eco-tourism and know about all the best parks. Along with my favorite, Tortuguero National Park, I just love Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park and Corcovado National Park.

I also love photography, and I know when the best times and seasons are for collecting the best memories. For example, I know the best time to photograph the gorgeous Quetzal, which nests in our beautiful cloud forest.

Yuliana's best travel experience

I love to do extreme activities like bungee jumping, rafting, and zip lining, and I am also partial to relaxing in a hot spring resort or witnessing a beautiful sunset from the beach. But what I will never forget is my first trip to Tortuguero National Park as a tour guide. The park has since become my favorite rainforest place, the biodiversity and conservation efforts are astounding.

Why is Yuliana the right travel expert

I consider I have a sixth sense that I am able to read the requirements of each traveler and what are they looking for, and then create the best experience for all of them.

I enjoy helping visitors plan their trips to Costa Rica and sharing with them the amazing experiences I have already had in my beautiful country.

If you choose to travel with me, you won't regret it!
