About Me
My name is Daniela, and I am a translator and project coordinator. I love living in Cartago because it was Costa Rica's main city for a long time. It's fairly small but full of secrets, surrounded by nature: rainforests and volcanoes.

Orosí, this little town was occupied by Spanish Conquistadores in the 16th century and persecuted the indigenous people here. There's a museum and a church with incredible stories.
