Carballo andres

Andres Carballo

Andres grew up in San Jose, Costa Rica, and spent his summers exploring Costa Rica’s beaches and his family’s farm in Alajuela. His interests are varied, from photography to biology and chemistry (he calls himself a professional student); he is also a licensed chef. At a friend’s suggestion, he became a naturalist-guide and has been delighting guests with his sense of humor and encyclopedic knowledge of the natural world since 2004. When not guiding, Andrew loves cooking for his family, travels as often as he can, and enjoys learning about a country’s food and its natural and cultural history. When he’s home, his binoculars usually hang alongside a cooking gadget he picked up at a local market.

Client Testimonials


Andres was an encyclopedic fountain of knowledge and information about Costa Rica. His ability to spot birds and varied fauna with his giant Swarovski telescope was incredible. Everywhere we went, many locals knew him and interacted with him. He helped to make this a most enjoyable and memorable trip.
