About Us

Ricardo Rodriguez with Katie Hamilton of Anderson University Women's Volleyball Team (South Carolina).Ricardo Rodriguez, the founder of High Performance Sports Costa Rica, was born in Coronado de San José, and has been passionate about sports his entire life. His company has allowed him to combine his love for sports together with the desire to unite people from different countries to make the world a better place, and at the same time to support his own country in the tourism industry.

Ricardo has been active in sports since the age of 15 and started racing competitively at the age of 17. He participated in the Costa Rican cycling tour when he was 18 & 19 years of age. He has competed in more than 350 races (including triathlons, duathlons, road racing, cycling, mountain biking, pool swimming, and ocean swimming). Between the ages of 25-30, Ricardo was not only the Triathlon Champion for all of Costa Rica, but also ranked as the top triathlon athlete in all of Central America (for his age group). His wife Wendy, was also an elite athlete and competed regularly in swimming and running races, duathlons, as well as numerous triathlons.

Ricardo and Wendy decided to leave the competitive circuit to start a family and fulfill their dream of spreading the power of sport, while at the same time supporting and contributing to their country.

High Performance Sports Costa Rica arose from the idea of creating a company to bring tourists to practice sports in Costa Rica, while at the same time showing them the spectacular natural beauty of Costa Rica and giving them the chance to contribute to the lives of people who are less fortunate.

Ricardo and Wendy believe in using sports not only for recreation, but also as a tool for communication and education. Their ultimate goal is to connect people from all over the world and build environmental and social awareness together.
