About us

Our team

Roberto Lizano
General Manager

I think life is a journey, a trip where you collect experiences when you share with other people and with nature.  I have been a travel addict since my early 20’s and Elemento Natural is my personal way of devoting my life to plan trips for myself and others, attempting to make each excursion a unique collection of authentic moments!

Alonso Madrigal
Operations Manager

After more than 20 years taking tourists to every corner of the country, what still thrills me like the first day is to watch the face of my passenger's astonishment at a magical moment of the tour: when they see the first monkey jumping through the trees, a sea turtle coming out of the ocean to lay their eggs, a toucan eating, a quetzal flying, the concentrated look at the conical shape of the Arenal Volcano or just when they are running in the sand to touch the ocean for the first time.  The fact that tourists leave Costa Rica with a big smile on their faces, hundreds of beautiful memories and a desire to return, makes us strive every day.  When they finally return, choosing again Costa Rica over other destinations, the time to go to the airport and pick up familiar faces is indescribable. Elemento Natural have customers that - through the years - have become friends, almost like family, they have traveled more than 10 times with us and will continue to do so as long as we keep painting that amazement in their faces at least once in each new adventure!




We will treat you like family!  Customized itineraries and personalized services is what we do, so you will feel like you have a pawl helping you out putting together your dream vacation!

Responsible travel

We do care about sustainability, about spreading the wealth with all the involved parties in a trip and about nature and conservation.  We also have a strong social responsibility policy and we contribute with non-profit partners to improve the quality of life of our communities.


We are locals and with over 22 years in tourism, we are truly experts in what Costa Rica has to offer, all over the country!  Born and raised here, we have spent quite some years traveling around our country and our neighbors, that is why you can also trust us for your extension trips to Nicaragua and Panamá!
