Meet The Team

Ariel Arrieta Morales

Founder & CEO

After traveling to over 54 countries, I always choose to return to my home and favorite country yet, where I combined my passion for travel and tourism with my desire to show others the endless beauty of my country and started my own tourism company in 2017. Having the prior experience I had of working in the hotel industry, and as a chauffeur &  tour guide over the years, allowed my company to thrive in this growing business. On my travels, I learned and understood what we like and consider a personalized experience as travelers. I love waking up every morning and getting to show people the breathtaking beauty my own backyard has to offer.

Tour & Experience Guide

Born and raised in Guanacaste, I am the second oldest of 9 siblings. Since I was young I decided to be closer to our immense nature. I accumulated several years of experience in the industry, working for large tourism companies through Costa Rica. Guanacaste still my favorite area of our country! I love to have the opportunity to share the local stories and cultural information of my own towns and meeting people.

After 10 years of bartending and restaurant experience at one of Costa Rica’s best 5-Star Resort, Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa, located on the surroundings of Volcano Arenal, I knew the tourism industry was my true passion.
