What an amazing service. They delivered on everything that they promised on the itinerary. We weren't back and for the about 7-8 times before we decided on the final itinerary. They were patient and available to help. To be honest, we weren't sure what we were going to get when we booked, but everything exceeded our expectations. We booked hotels,... More

I was having trouble deciding what activities the family and should participate in while visiting Lake Arenal, Tamarindo and the rest of Guanacaste. Luckily I was referred by a friend to Pacific Trade Winds and a lovely gentleman named Enrique. He was a pleasure to deal with and knew everything about what was available I told him our varying interests... More

We were a little apprehensive of doing everything online but it all worked out smoothly. Any time we had a question, they answered promptly & we were able to make changes from their proposal. All transfers went smoothly. This is my 2nd time in Costa Rica & I'll likely return - with them.

I found PTW on the internet and was nervous to use them. I am so glad I did. Everything was perfect from the second we got off the airplane. The driver was waiting and took us 3 hours to our hotel. The hotel was beautiful and the adventures were amazing. Eduardo took the time ask what my family was interested... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and with the help of the people at Pacific Trade winds, it will not be the last! They made every aspect of the trip easy and carefree. The choice of options they gave me were based on my likes and dislikes, price range, and activities that I was interested and were spot... More

We hired Pacific Trade Winds to arrange 5 days of accommodations, transportation and outdoor activities for us in the Arenal area of Costa Rica in early March. We were very impressed with their responsiveness to our (many!) requests and questions, getting us the kind of accommodations we wanted (eco-lodges a bit off the beaten track, not fancy hotels in Fortuna),...

Having never been to Costa Rica before, we worked with Pacific Trade Winds who planned an excellent vacation for us given our activity and accommodation preferences. They were responsive, professional, and oh so helpful. All arrangements went like clockwork thanks to the legwork done by Pacific Trade Winds. We just stumbled across them online and are so glad we did.... More

Wonderful experience from beginning to end. From the initial contact to the very last day the service and communication was excellent. We wanted to change an excursion and within 30 minutes all was taken care of even though our contact person was out of the office. The transportation from the airport and back was excellent. They had several people waiting... More

Pacific Trade Winds was recommended by a friend and they may have changed my whole perception of travel agencies. My wife and I have traveled much of the world, but have always planned our trips on our own. This was our first experience with such an agency to help us with hotels, tours, and restaurants. We could not be more... More
