A Second Family for Miguel in the Lost Canyon by Miguel, Canyoneering Guide
My first and FAVORITE tour is the Lost Canyon. I did it the first time more than five years ago. I was living in Monteverde and actually moved where I was to be a guide in the Lost Canyon. This canyon is really amazing as it has one of the highest rappels in Costa Rica!My favorite part of being a guide at the Lost Canyon is getting to see people experience it for the first time. I love talking to the clients and learning about them and also being able to share and laugh with them. Having fun with each of them is the best part! I really love working with smaller groups as I can connect with each person better. It has definitely made me grow as a person and has allowed me to learn and practice my English also.
I also love my co-workers. We are a team and a family! We spend 8 hours a day together in the canyon. The canyon house in my second home and we are a really solid team. Most of the guys have all been working together for years and have gone through a lot. It is good to know we are always looking out for each other out there. We all work really hard but we always have fun together!
