Guardia was born and raised in San Jose, Costa Rica, and originally came to fame in 1978 when she won the Miss Costa Rica pageant, and was then sent on to represent Costa Rica at the Miss Universe 1978 contest. Although she didn’t place, she was named Miss Photogenic, and also went to the Miss World 1978 contest and placed in the top 15.
Miss Universe actually led Guardia to her acting career, which ended up being more successful. The pageant had taken place in Acapulco, so she was noticed by Sergio Bustamante, a TV producer. He believed that Maribel could have a successful career as an actress, and offered her a chance. She refused at first, opting instead to return home to her mother and boyfriend, however, the idea of acting never left her, and she accepted the offer a few months later, moving back to Mexico in 1980.
Guardia began appearing in various telenovelas during the 1980s, including “Seduccion” (1986). However, she didn’t just limit herself to acting, and soon began pursuing a music career. She released her first album, “Maribel Guardia”, in 1988, and she has followed it up with two albums, “Con La Banda Tamazulas” (1994) and “Despacito” (2003).
