Immerse yourself in the timeless tale of Jimmy Jimenez Gomez, a proud Costa Rican, whose lineage has been intertwined with the mesmerizing mountains of Braulio Carrillo for generations. His soul stirs with the mysterious whisperings of Cacho Negro and the Sarapiqui region, a realm where every step might awaken a fer-de-lance snake, a jaguar might prowl in the shadows, and untold secrets lie in wait. Amidst these forests, rivers flow unseen, and waterfalls that could outshine the world’s most famous cascade in obscurity, untamed and undisturbed, unseen in any travel chronicle.

Revered as a local legend, Sarapiqui echoes with tales of Jimmy, the man who became one with the mountain. His childhood was a rhythm of hunting, a common pursuit in this rugged terrain. Years he spent interpreting the animals’ movements, decoding the tale told by their trails, predicting their destinations. The thrill of the chase gradually transformed into a deep respect for the magic of these mountains and a realization dawned upon him – the importance of every life within this intricate web of nature.

Fuelled by this newfound wisdom, Jimmy set about changing his course. No longer the hunter, he became the guide, shepherding adventurers on multi-day expeditions into these untouched territories, awakening in them a reverence for this captivating wilderness. His mission of conservation isn’t just to save nature but to illuminate its true significance to humanity.
