My name is Alonso, I come from a place where there are nature, volcanoes and lots of coffee but on a visit to La Fortuna I was so impressed by the Arenal Volcano, so I decided to make it my second home more than 15 years ago. I am very lucky to know about nature, the history of La Fortuna and to be able to live in this place, which is visited by people from all over the world. I like to help tourists and share my knowledge of Costa Rica.
