Adventure Guide Daniel Rodriguez 

Adventure Guide Daniel Rodriguez

August 28, 2012

Many of our Costa Rica guided tours throughout the season are led by our head guide Daniel Rodriguez (Danny).

Danny comes from a long line of family members who have worked in the tourism industry in Costa Rica for many years. Danny’s mother worked in tourism when he was growing up, so the outdoors and conservation have always been very important to him. Originally from San Jose, Danny started rafting at the age of 12 learning to paddle on the Reventazon, Pacuare and Corobici rivers. By the time he was in his early 20’s Danny had already represented Costa Rica at the World Rafting Championships in Ecuador.

Equally at home in a kayak Danny is an all round expert whitewater guide.

Danny’s perfect English is a product of having moved to and lived in the United States for 5 years. As a trip leader on our Week of Adventures or Week of Rivers, Danny brings lots of fun and laughs to our Costa Rica trips as well as an in depth knowledge of everything Costa Rican. He has an incredible amount of knowledge on the flora and fauna and helps bring Costa Rica alive for our international guests.

When he is not working Danny enjoys all adrenaline/outdoor activities, especially surfing, skateboarding, kayaking and rappelling.
