Born on December 15, 1987, in the city of Alajuela, Adriana comes from a family that enjoys nature and guiding. Both parents worked in the travel business and passed their love of the outdoors to their 4 kids.
As a child Adriana always dreamed of being a biologist. As a little girl she especially like snakes and remembers visit a serpentarium with her dad where they let her hang a snake over her shoulders, she doesn’t remember what species it was.
Adriana graduated from the Universidad Latina in 2008 with a BA degree in Biology, Sustainable Development and Ecology from the Universidad Latina. She works as a Naturalist Guide, as a Professors Assistant with the Organization for Tropical Studies and as a Field Assistant as well.
Her first love is the outdoors and she is happiest when she is wet and dirty in the field. “Each day is a surprise” she says, “That’s what I love about guiding”.
When she’s not guiding, Adriana loves to read and go dancing or to the beach with her friends.
