Meet Tom Ranieri

Tom started exploring Costa Rica in 2001 and quickly fell in love with the country and people

A message from Tom Ranieri

With so much to talk about when it comes to one of the most diverse countries on the planet my message usually stays the same.

After running memorable vacations in Costa Rica for 20 years and being a part of a pretty amazing tourism industry my favorite part about visiting Costa Rica is still what I see puts the smile on most of our guests faces.

The gem that keeps Costa Rica beautiful and makes it a place for adventure and happiness is not the waterfalls, not the rivers, nor the volcanos. The best of the best of Costa Rica is getting time to immerse yourself with the Costa Rican people.

Hard for any adventure or scenery to compete with the happiness of the Ticos. Although, I have seen a few kids that thought seeing a sloth up close was the coolest thing ever so those furry guys seem to be trying to make a case.

Thank you for making Pacuare Outdoor Center part of your Costa Rica vacation. We’re thrilled to host you and I look forward to meeting you.
