Welcome to the GoBeyond Costa Rica trip logs! Below is a little bit about the staff that will be leading this summer. Enjoy!
ANNA CORTEY-MARQUES – Originating from Spain, Anna studied Translation and Interpretation in Barcelona and Germany, where she started her career as a devoted language teacher. Passionate about cultural diversity, she spends every summer promoting positive social interaction through language worldwide. She has extensive experience both guiding students abroad and leading cultural, educational, and sports activities. As an adventurer, she is active, happy, in love with the planet and its peoples. She feels delighted to merge her hobbies with her job, and can’t wait for her next summer with GoBeyond!
ENRICO LUIS RODRIGUEZ-COTA – My passion for traveling and interacting with new cultures started at a young age. My family lived all over the U.S. and spent a few years living in Sicily. I served in the military for eight years, where I developed my skills in evaluating, organizing, and leading situations. The military allowed me to work with individuals from all over the world. During this time, I realized the importance of aiding those in need and connecting with different cultures. In 2014, I made Florida my home, where I got into the outdoor industry as an outdoor guide while completing college — introducing students to new experiences like scuba diving, caving, whitewater rafting, backpacking, and camping. I have a certification as a wilderness first responder and an ACA level 2 coastal kayaking. During my free time, I enjoy a relaxing day on a standup paddleboard while exploring the natural springs of Florida.
