I am Allan Guevara, founder of Osa Great Adventure, I began working in a Info Center for visitors in Drake Bay in 2011, I remember that during that time I was learning English by myself and to do so I started reading books about wildlife. I did not know I was going to become a tour guide and really love it.
People tell me that I have the best job of the world and ask me if I like it, and what I love the most of my job and my answer is that I am amazed by nature, and that every day I see and learn something different but what I really like the most about my job is that I get to meet people from all over the world and pass to them my love for nature.
In tourism, I met my wife, Marlene from Austria. And we have a son together, his name is Leon he was born in november of 2016. My life has changed a lot and I am loving it.
She was born in a small town in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica, Karen is the fifth of seven siblings, who together with her mother learned to get ahead by supporting each other as a great team. Since childhood, she has been a woman with a great passion for nature.
Her dreams of growing and searching in the forest the connection with her mission in life led her to study Ecological Tourism at the Universidad de Costa Rica. She complemented her studies as a General Guide in the INA (Instituto Nacional de Aprendisaje) and in the ICT (Instituto Costarricense de Turismo).
Her fascinations are reptiles and amphibians, however, She enjoys the forest in every way, and how nature manifests as a gear that balances existence. Therefore, with this excellent guide, you will admire every natural space of the Corcovado National Park and its surroundings.
