Marco Fallas

Marco’s friends call him “Tex”, and he is full of energy and has a contagious sense of humor.

With over 20 years of experience in the tourism field in Costa Rica, Marco knows his home country well. Combined with his vast experience in the field, Marco continues to study about Costa Rica and in the off-season he has taken many courses including studies in ornithology, ecology, history etc., and recently nature photography.

His travels in the United States include the Grand Tetons, Minnesota, Sedona, and Michigan, and this has helped him to better understand temperate climate ecology and the USA culture.

With his ready laugh and caring manner, it is no wonder Marco is one of our most popular tour leaders!
