Alexander Arias

Originally educated as a computer scientist, Alex’s abiding love of the outdoors eventually lured him into his current vocation as a naturalist guide. For the past 12 years he has been introducing guests to the natural splendors of his homeland of Costa Rica and has received certifications from the Costa Rica Tourism Institute and the National Institute of Biodiversity. He has received special training in search and rescue, adventure racing and navigation, CPR and survival techniques. He is a member of the national search and rescue team and has represented Costa Rica in several international adventure competitions. In his free time, he can be found birding, biking, kayaking, canyoneering, exploring new trails, rappelling down waterfalls and fishing.

Praise from Natural Habitat travelers:

H. Epstein
“Alex was knowledgable, personable, and has a great sense of humor. He engaged every individual in our family and on the trip, paying to attention to everyone’s needs, likes and dislikes, level of energy every day, etc. He knew an amazing amount about Costa Rican history, geography, economy, and of course flora and fauna.”

C. Sheffield
“Wonderful guide! Always willing to give of his time. Easy-going, friendly and really knows his birds.”
