"Sometimes life's gonna hit you in the head with a brick, dont loose faith! I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did, you've got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers. The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, KEEP LOOKING, don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. DON'T SETTLE." - Steve Jobs

Mauricio Odio: President and Owner - Expedition and Adventure Guide - Instructor

Mauricio OdioMauricio, was born in San José, but raised in the Capital and in the Caribbean lowlands, both in a farm and in town. He began doing adventure things when he was just a kid, traveling with his father all around the country, and when just getting to the farm in the jungle, near Tortuguero, was a whole day adventure, with 4x4 in the mud, fording big rivers or using just two big tree logs as a bridge. Horseback riding, canoeing, walking in the jungle at the farm, and using a cable -like in the canopy tour- to pass over a river, where part of an average day at the farm.

No doubt why he began doing more adventurous activities later, like mountaineering, rock climbing, speleology, mountain bike, scuba diving, horseback riding, 4x4, canopy tours, canyoneering (certified guide by the ACA), white water rafting, kayaking and canoeing. He has been a volunteer in the National Search and Rescue Unit from Red Cross, for more than 13 years, being also an instructor for Search & Rescue, High Angle Rescue, GPS and Cartography, mountaineering and jungle, as well as a former second in charge Chief of the Unit.

Also as a volunteer he went to work in 1993 to Guyana in South America with a Canadian organization called Youth Challenge; and worked here many years in the Turtle Conservation projects both in the Caribbean and in the Pacific of Costa Rica. As a Consultant he is contracted by some hotels and companies to check the adventure activities and make the Procedures and Safety Manuals, according with the adventure regulations in Costa Rica He also enjoys outdoor and wildlife photography (almost all the pictures in this website where taken by him).
