TICO BE LIKE
Industrial Engineer and Founder
I am a Costa Rican, born and raised. I’m an Industrial Engineer, passionate about designing and improving processes, and the process of designing a safe and comfortable experience abroad in Costa Rica is no exception.
I started traveling to Tamarindo, Guanacaste in 2014, while falling in love with a European/Canadian man with whom I spent the following six years planting and growing a beautiful permaculture food forest, with lots of native and exotic plants from all over the world.
I’ve been on Costa Rica’s Gold Coast ever since, working in the Tourism Industry: vacation rentals, property management, and procurement and purchasing management at both, the Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort and the Jardín del Edén Boutique Hotel.
I have also enjoyed collaborating on other projects, especially designing eLearning resources. However, negotiating with vendors and suppliers was always my favorite.
I am a Costa Rican, born and raised. I am a Spanish teacher who graduated from the University of Costa Rica. I have worked for 19 years as a Spanish educator for the Costa Rican Ministry of Public Education (MEP).
My university studies in the Spanish language are complemented by an academic master’s degree in Latin American Literature from the University of Costa Rica.
For five years, I have also worked for the educational program USAC (University Studies Abroad Consortium), sponsored in my country by the University of Costa Rica, which focuses on teaching the Spanish language to foreigners.
In my free time, I love reading a good book, listening to music, meditating, running, or just walking around and getting some fresh air. Poetry and writing, in general, are also my passion.
English Teacher and Cook
I am a Costa Rican, born and raised. I’ve been passionate about words and sentences since I was a child, which is why I became an English teacher.
I really wanted to learn this language because I saw it everywhere: in music, movies, books, etc. Learning a different language was a rewarding experience because it has opened up so many opportunities for me over the years.
Another reason why I needed to learn this language is that my sister and nieces live in the United States and my nieces don’t speak Spanish very well. I love when I have the opportunity to teach them Spanish vocabulary, common phrases and local slang. We work on that whenever we can since they will visit Costa Rica someday. I also love to cook and have formal education in this field.
