When I first came to Costa Rica from Canada back in 2000 I was taken away from its beauty, in the people, culture, and the super-rich bio diversity which has not stopped impressing me 17 year later…
Feeling blessed after many travels throughout Costa Rica and some of the best experiences I’ve had I knew if I wanted to continue to live the Pura Vida that I needed to find some way to establish myself, so I did what I do best, be present clear and focused, being in the now with a mind full of wonder guided me to the many location in Costa Rica all special in their own way, I loved the beach and had a great connection here, the ocean and endless summer is hard to beat but The adventure Capital of Costa Rica La Fortuna was calling, there was so much I had to check out…
La Fortuna was the major shift in PACR’s existence, the place I meet Sofia Trejos, my love, best friend and partner. Teaming up with Sofia gave PACR the extra stability and roots needed to grow to the company we are today. After 7 years of connecting with the local tour operators and accommodation our webpresence started to take form, with Tripadvisor, Goolgle, Facebook and Airbnb,
PACR is now making waves webside and it was time to put those waves to good use; PACR was on the move and what better place to ride those waves then the beach, surfs up! We did not have much of plan, just that we wanted to find another location with lots to offer for adventure and accommodation, close enough to surf (Tamarindo) and to one of my favorite beaches in Costa Rica; Playa Conchal.
The PACR crew (Sofia, Valentina, and Myself) are very excited about this new location and are already feeling the positive effects of change.
Still offering the same adventure and lodging options in La Fotruna and are now offering the same quality service and other activities and lodging from our new local.
Please share PACR’s success to help people find us and Contact Us about rates and details of the new Tours and Accommodation options available. See you soon, Safe Travels, Pura Vida Siempre!

La Fortuna was fun, we learned allot it was time to grow in other directions so that we can share more of the fun visitors, with multiple locations we are able to provide a more extensive itinerary so that people can maximize there visit.

2013 was a year of change and new opportunities With more experience under our belt and added options for adventures we decided to move Downtown La Fortuna. Having established great relations with the local community opened a door to join Hotel La Amistad; situated in one of the most accessible locations of all of La Fortuna.
Some paint and loads of PACR charm had the town chattering, for years this location sat vacant waiting for the right people to come along and when they saw it was PACR they were as stoked as were. After years of managing two locations we finally decided one office in a superior scene would be sufficient.
We are Happy with our new home, the chnage was needed, we are feeling refreshed and ready to fuel the stoke for 2014. Stop by and let us know what you think, it’s a work in progress that is turning into a place filled with the same ingredient’s as our previous locations.
