Alejandro Cano Ospina

I am a certified tour guide in English and Spanish, licensed from the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism. In the near-future, I will hopefully have complete my studies in Japanese and German, too! I have thus far had the opportunity to travel and work in the tourist industry to several places, including Hawaii, Israel, Colombia, and Panama, and learn about tourism internationally.

I inherited a desire to learn about the environment and sustainability from my mother. Aside for guiding, for over 20 years I have researched, developed, and implemented teaching modules for youth and adults regarding new technologies to protect the planet - like solar energy, clean agricultural technics, culturally respectful tourism, and ecotourism. Along with my knowledge in Biochemistry, I completed a certificate program from Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica in solar energy technology and a certificate program on hydroponics from La Universidad de Costa Rica.

From USD 37 / Screen
