My name is Yury Alvarez, I am Costa Rican, originally from Tamarindo, Guanacaste, I am a mother of a baby boy named Bastien, and graduated from Universidad Latina de Costa Rica as an accountant, obtaining my bachelor degree.


Me and my son we both are surfers, water and nature lovers, loving, caring who loves traveling and adventures, music, arts, meet new people and experience new cultures.


I have worked as a nanny in many different capacities all around Costa Rica and internationally. I decided to start my own company for childcare services called Sunshine Babysitting  Costa Rica, the first and only registered company with over 10 years of experience.


I have a background in business and have many years working with high profile families all around Costa Rica. I understand the stresses that can come with a strict timetable.


Regardless of any stressful situation that may arise, I have learned to embody the laid back and kind attitude of Costa Rica. I know how to diffuse any situation quickly and with a bit of fun! My kind and friendly disposition lend itself to great relationships with children and parents alike!


I am "Zafarrancho" certified, The course is composed of four modules:

  • Personal safety and social responsibilities,

  • Fire prevention and fight,

  • Personal survival techniques

  • CPR and First aid.

I have my ISA Coaching and Instructing and ISA/ILS International Surf and SUP Instructor Aquatic Rescue and Safety Course Certification, find me as well as Yury Alvarez Espinoza up to date in the ISA Certified Surf Coach and Instructor Directory here: http://www.isasurf.org/development-programs/coaching-instructing/certified-instructors-directory/

Pura vida !
