My name is David, I'm from Costa Rica. I like traveling to other countries. I have taken free tours in several cities such as London and Amsterdam, or had the opportunity to be guided in Paris by local people. So when visiting those cities again, I discovered that I loved to share experiences and advices about Monuments, Parks, Squares or any important place to visit with people who were first time at those cities. At the City where I live, San Jose, I continue to enjoy that passion with traveler friends from overseas and Guruwalk community. My hobbies are finding my next travel experience, planning low cost trips, learning languages and things about new cultures. Hopefully, opening a Youtube channel about my travels will integrate part of my spare time.

About the Tour

The best free tour to be known in San José!.

Be delighted about San José´s history and culture, taking a promenade passing by the main buildings and tourist attractions, along with brief and amusing explanations on their relevance and national importance.

What are we going to see?
The National Museum, The Gold Museum, The Jade Museum, The National Theater, Culture Square, The National Park, among other iconic buildings. The walk also includes ¨Avenida Central¨ which is the main Avenue in the Capital of Costa Rica. Last schedule of The Tour at 18:00 varies the places to visit in order to provide better security because at that time it gets dark.

Have a funny time discovering Costa Ricans' urban life and more.

The tour went by the main touristic points of San Jose, in the city center. It was very pleasant to hear the history of the town and the country. David was super nice, and gave very deep explanations, as well as different tips about where to eat and what to do in Costa Rica! Definitely recommend it!

Una muy buena experiencia. Se nota cuando a una persona le gusta lo que hace, y en el caso de David es así. Un placer hacer el tour con el.

David was an excellent guide! We were told not to expect much from San Jose, but really loved the walk through the city, guided by David. Beautiful architecture, lovely plazas, bustling streets… a really great experience overall!
