La Fortuna, Costa Rica, has high potential for becoming a sustainable destination according to international GSTC standards; however, it lacks local sourcing of fresh agricultural goods, even tough, some of them there are locally grown. This research describes the agri‐food produce supply chain of four selected products in the region and addresses governance mechanisms, price gaps and overall limitations for an effective supply chain. Results provide an insight on the supply chain mechanism and main limitations of actors to create win‐win partnerships resulting in large price gaps among supply chain links and procurement inefficiencies.
