Omar has worked as a Naturalist Guide for Costa Rica Expeditions for many years, but recently decided to give up the vagabond lifestyle of a guide for the very detailed-oriented transport programmer job in the company's Operations Department. “I’m looking forward to learning about the bigger picture of the company,” he says. “Coordinating a trip-of-a-lifetime requires careful orchestration of not only transport and lodging, but a whole chain of services.”

Born to Costa Rican parents on July 14, 1964, in Los Angeles, Omar graduated from high school in Costa Rica in the 80s, earning a degree in precision mechanics. Since then he has earned two degrees from National Learning Institute in general mechanics and guiding. Omar is a dedicated father to his five children and enjoys spending his free time with them. He likes all kinds of sports and, whenever possible, surfing the Web.


Oct. 13, 2005 Costa Rica Expeditions: "Noteworthy service."
We are now home, very sad to have left Costa Rica. Is there someone I can write to pass along my commendations for people who provided especially noteworthy service? I believe that such people should be recognized for their excellent work. Please pass the following photos to Omar at Corcovado. Without his help and those of his staff, they would not have been possible.
