My name is Oscar Castillo. For almost 20 years, I have been working in Monteverde as a Professional Bilingual Naturalist Guide, certified by the Costa Rican Tourism Board (License #1090). Since then, I have also worked with leading institutions in fields such as ecotourism, conservation, and environmental education.
Monteverde is unique because of the high level of endemism that makes these forests one of the most biodiverse places in the world. I have been navigating Monteverde’s forests for over 20 years participating in a variety of nature field work, including bird inventory, amphibian inventory, guiding nature hikes, night tours, and birding tours. I am forever in love with nature and would be happy to share the wonders of Monteverde with you.
