Transportation was with knowledgeable pleasant friendly drivers in super clean vehicles, adventures (white water rafting, surfing, zip lining, hiking through bridges, sailing, snorkeling) was with first class operations. Many...More
Antonio Hidalgo was our agent and he helped us book 2 hotels, daily activities, flights between towns in Costa Rica, and all the transfers. Everything went flawlessly. Highly recommend. We were two guys going on a boys trip and had a blast.
Talk about patience. I changed my itinerary at least 11 times. We had an amazing Family vacation in Costa Rica. Everything was well planned and detail oriented. The transportation was always on time, friendly and well informed. Bi-lingual. We had just the right amount of...More
We recently returned from a 10 day vacation to Costa Rica-our first time visiting the country! Although I typically research and plan all of our vacations on my own, I reached out to Pacific Trade Winds because I wanted additional help and reassurance booking travel...More
Pacific Trade Winds was terrific from the planning through the execution. They worked with me and within my budget. They patiently answered my every question. When we got to Costa Rica, a driver was waiting and he was terrific. He stopped to show us sights...More

Antonio Hidalgo did good job to planned the great vacation for us ( 4 adults - friends). The combination of attractions we saw was perfect. Just don't recommend Hotel Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort, Tamarindo - not friendly, not clean, not comfortable.
I never book vacations through travel agents. I usually prefer to research and plan our family's trips on my own. However, I was a little overwhelmed with the various areas of Costa Rica. After reading all of the reviews, I decided to use Pacific Trade...More
Ivannia from Pacific Trade Winds planned the most perfect vacation for our family of 5 (kids are 18,20, 23). The combination of beach, relaxation, jungle, and adventure was exactly what we wanted. The accommodations were beautiful. The excursions were run by well-informed tour guides and...More

I understand your concern. I felt the same way when we were planning our trip. I started putting together a plan and I was overwhelmed trying to do it myself. When I connected with Pacific Tradewinds it seemed too good to be true and I kept waiting for something to go wrong. That never happened. Tourism is a huge part of the Costa Rican economy and a big part of the reason is because they know how to do it right. I've not worked with any other travel agency in Costa Rica - why should I when this company is so good.They provided the most trouble-free vacation I have ever had and at a great price. After we got home I went online to add up the cost of everywhere we stayed and everything we did along with the transportation they provided and it was more than what we paid Pacific Tradewinds. They have relationships with many hotels and businesses that provide the best rates and they pass it on to you. From my personal experience I will tell you that these guys are the real deal and they know how to do it right. Read other reviews, but know that I will be using them exclusively for any travel in Costa Rica. One note - if you are traveling soon I suggest you contact them ASAP because that will give them the opportunity to get you good accommodations for the best rates. If you wait too long things will fill up and they will have to take what's left and that may mean higher prices. I wish you the same experience we had visiting Costa Rica, it was the best vacation I have ever had and Pacific Tradewinds is the reason why.
By Far our most favorite thing was the rafting trip and then another gentler inner tubing float. It was fun and so beautiful! We loved the Volcanic hotsprings - whether at the resort or hiking out to more natural ones... More
By Far our most favorite thing was the rafting trip and then another gentler inner tubing float. It was fun and so beautiful! We loved the Volcanic hotsprings - whether at the resort or hiking out to more natural ones. The one thing I wish we had done was the excursion where you do river rappelling. Next trip!
I would suggest wildlife refuge either in San Jose by the waterfall garden or near Arenal springs. Not much walking and you get to see and touch the sloths and other animals like toucans and monkeys. If you do the cloud... More
I would suggest wildlife refuge either in San Jose by the waterfall garden or near Arenal springs. Not much walking and you get to see and touch the sloths and other animals like toucans and monkeys. If you do the cloud Forrest or rain Forrest it's a lot of walking and no guarantees you will see the animals. We did river safari in Arenal it was fun. Let me know if I can helpore.
