Maribel Guardia Net Worth $10 Million

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). She found great success during the ‘80s and ‘90s due to her various telenovelas and albums, all of which helped contribute to her rising net worth.

More recently, Guardia has begun to focus on children’s telenovelas; she starred in several such shows during the 2000s, including “Aventuras En El Tiempo” (2004-05), “Al diablo con los Guapos” (2007-08), and “Corona de Lagrimas” (2012-13). She also dabbles in movies, starring in the 2006 comedy “Que Madre, Tan Padre”.

Other than acting and singing, Maribel also still finds time to model for magazines and calendars at least. From the acting to singing to modeling, it`s no surprise Guardia has such a hefty net worth.

Regarding her personal life, Guardia is married to Marco Chacon. She does not have any children with him, although she does have a son with a previous husband, Joan Sebastian (José Manuel Figueroa Figueroa) (1992-96), who currently lives with Guardia in Miami, Florida. She has also been inducted into the Paseo de las Luminarias, a prestigious location in Mexico akin to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
