alejandro mendez

Alejandro, affectionately called Pulpo, spent some years in the US but returned in early 2006. Before leaving the country, Alejandro worked as a CRE Naturalist Guide for seven years. Now in Operations, he knows exactly what kind of logistics go into making even the most complicated trip run smoothly.

I enjoy sharing my country with visitors, he says, and making exceptional trips happen is what we do best. I am proud to work in a great company surrounded by friends who are not only hard-working professionals, but great people too.

Alejandro graduated from the Univ. of Cartago in Costa Rica in 1992, with business and tourism degrees. He has a daughter, Maria Fernanda, 8, and enjoys spending free time listening to music, reading or traveling. His birthday is March 19, 1974.

Mar 22, 2006.- ''The accommodations were amazing, as were all the people.''
This trip exceeded all my expectations! Please extend my gratitude to Alejandro, our river guide on the Pacuare River; Ricardo, our host at the Tortuga Lodge; and Kenya, she was a perfect example of the peace and relaxation achieved at the Corcovado Lodge. The accommodations were amazing, as were all the people who helped make my vacation a perfect time away from home. I just wish I were still there. I'm already planning my parents vacation and maybe will even join them. Thanks!
