They actually listened to my needs & wants and came through on every level! How often can you say that?! We are a family of 5 - and my sons are ages 20, 16 & 13, so we were looking to keep the boys engaged and interested while still relaxing on vacation. PTW made our trip perfection. There are so...

Pacific Trade Winds booked most of our accomodations and tours in Costa Rica. They also provided a wealth of information via email and phone before we left the States. I would highly recommens them for first time visitors and anyone wanting to make the most of their time in Costa Rica.

I loved working with Pacific Trade Winds. I was booking somewhat last minute and they were able to put together a great itinerary based on my interests so that I didn't have to spend too much time researching my trip. They were flexible with my schedule and requests, knowledgeable about the attractions, and had great communication every step of the... More

Pacific Trade took over and booked all our hotels, transfers and excursions. Everything went as planned and all the hotel's and tour guides were amazing! The company did... More

We had a last minute opportunity to visit Costa Rica with little knowledge of the country. They tailored an adventure vacation based upon our preferences and budget and it was smooth sailing! The $ is well worth the time saved in researching and booking everything on our own. The service, organization, and delivery we awesome!

I'm a widow with two kids, and between planning all the details before hand and managing logistics while on "vacation," I often end up exhausted. This time I left things in the hands of Pacific Trade Winds, which took all the stress out of all of that. It was very easy. They planned an itinerary that reflected our interests, changed... More

We had a group of 8 -- 4 adults and 4 kids ranging in age from 9-14. Every one of us had a blast! Our hotel rooms were nice, transportation was friendly and they were always on time, the "excursions" were tons of fun. We are so glad we chose Pacific Trade Winds!

We booked our Costa Rican adventure through Pacific Trade Winds and couldn't have been happier. They were willing to make changes to our itinerary to accommodate our needs. They provided quick responses to any or all questions. This vacation was AMAZING thanks to the trip they put together for us!
