About the Host, Shirani
Hi! I am currently the full-time manager of Casa Kibi Kibi, a cozy guesthouse in San Jose, Costa Rica. However, I am also an historian and professional tour guide. While I am passionate about photography and traveling, I also indulge in a particularly nerdy fascination with commercial aviation, so save me your airline safety cards!
I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to over 40 countries, and I love meeting people of different nationalities and cultures. I especially enjoy sampling new and hopefully exotic foods - there is nothing I won't try at least once! I am also very proud of my indigenous Brunca heritage. If you have the chance to visit Costa Rica, I will for sure be more than happy to show you my place and recommend my favorite spots!
