Mauricio Cortés

Planet Solutions
Mauricio Cortés E, born and raised in Costa Rica, started at a very young age a very close relationship with nature thanks to his grandfather, who was a hunter and a fisherman. At age 15, he started working in television as an actor of San Buenaventura, the first TV series filmed in Costa Rica since 1993, with breathtaking sceneries from all the country’s national parks. Later on, he worked behind the scenes learning different tasks in the production of 120 natural history one-hour documentaries for Sin Fronteras Project, that aired El Planeta Azul. In the year 2000, Mauricio studied Film with a major in Documentary, and became the creator of DestinosTV International Travel Channel in 2003. This experience gave him the opportunity to travel and film some of the most marvelous destinations around the world producing more than 100 one-hour travel guides.   He is now the co-founder  of the nonprofit 5-Minute Beach Cleanup Foundation and owner of Planet Solutions, a production company specialized in showing the goodness of nature since 2018.
