Jose, your local contact in Costa Rica
My name is Jose and I'm the owner of Costa Rica Adventures ! My business was born in 1988 by my father Marvin Ugalde Arguedas. I started to help him on various tours at the age of six. Since then, I'm known as one of finest friends and travel guides when you are travelling to Costa Rica.
I have eight years of experience in the tourism industry, but my passion for discovery developed at a very young age, when I joined my father on Costa Rica Adventure tours. Besides being a certified tour guide, I'm licensed naturalist guide in Costa Rica with a work experience for extended periods in the areas around Arenal and the Osa Peninsula as a local guide.
I'm a lifelong nature lover and an enthusiastic bird-watcher ! We are planning tours for people at all age: if you are a family, we will organize tours that are suitable for your children. When you travel with us, we will share the spirit of discovery on every journey that Costa Rica Adventures offers..
Let's go to Costa Rica !
Costa Rica is located in Central America, between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It is bordered on the north by Nicaragua and by Panama on the south. Though Costa Rica is a small country, it contains a surprising 5% of the world’s biodiversity. To preserve this natural resource, about 25% of Costa Rica’s territory is protected as national parks and other nature reserves.
Travel throughout Costa Rica is safe and friendly faces greet you at every stop. It’s no surprise that Costa Rica is known around the world for its generous hospitality and exceptional personal service. People here are democratic and peaceful therefore Costa Rica was declared the happiest country in the world by the New Economics Foundation in 2012.
You can visit Costa Rica all year around. The high season (December to April) is warmer, somewhat drier, and attractive to many tourists. However, the rainy or "Green" season, (May to November) is also an excellent time to visit Costa Rica as it's cooler, the weather is more variable (from rain to sun), popular destinations can be far less crowded, and prices are often lower!
