Letter from Owner Tom Ranieri
With a country full of amazing people, a landscape that day after day just blows your mind, and some of the best rivers on the planet, I decided to call Costa Rica home. I made my early career whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River and working as an adventure guide for different companies. The more I began to see Costa Rica become developed I felt there was a need for a market of more authentic tourism and more importantly a worldwide awareness of how human decisions are affecting nature and how once nature is affected the human life-support starts a decline.
With this said, the goal of starting Costa Rican Resource was to get people out into nature to realizing that each and every human on the planet is a part of our natural world. Some might think we offer only rustic adventures but some of our most luxurious vacations are simply done using places that use sustainable practices when ever possible. There are areas of Costa Rica today that simply detach one from nature making one think that they are in a tropical paradise, but nothing on the grounds is actually in it's natural state. We feel as a company that a world of children that are able to identify thousands of brand names yet unable to identify 3 of the native species of plants from their own locale is a sign that awareness needs to be a key component of the travel industry.
Our company is small and we operate at a very personalized level allowing every client to feel as if they are part of the family when they leave. Our dedication to operating every tour in a sustainable manner and leaving every client with a better awareness of not only the amazing country of Costa Rica but also aware of different environmental issues that affects the world's natural beauty.
We hope you join us for your Costa Rica Adventure and get excited with us about an opportunity to do so much for yourselves and your children. In giving them a trip to Costa Rica you are giving them an appreciation of nature and in doing that giving them and your grandkids a much better future.
