Our grandfather had a medical dispensary in Pejibaye de Pérez
Zeledón for many years.
Jason and I grew up in Heredia in a small house, with dreams
and illusions of achieving great things. My parents Olga and
Guillermo decided to take us to the United States when I was 15
years old. They, among other tasks, worked in cleaning, living the
Listening to God’s inner voice, this experience became the
necessary impulse to know that we wanted something better
for our lives. This desire to improve fueled a constant struggle in
the right direction, and as part of this experience, we completed
the learning of the English language.
Meanwhile, my older brothers Michael and Mauricio stayed
in Costa Rica, working and studying, going through difcult
times without a doubt. Mauricio decided to keep working and
help Michael nish his studies. After completing his career as a
pharmacist, the adventure began. Our mother, Olga, already with
signicant experience in pharmacies, at the age of 24, decided to
open the Ibarra Pharmacy in Palmar Norte, accompanied by my
brother and colleague, Dr. Michael (pharmacist).
Michael helped us nish our studies, and we mobilized the other
brothers with this same impulse. We migrated to the Southern
Zone of Costa Rica. Mauricio in Ciudad Cortés, Jason in Sierpe
(and currently in Ojochal), and myself, Jeimmy in Uvita, we
opened branches to form the Ibarra Pharmacy and Macrobiotic
For several years working separately due to different difculties
we faced, in 2016, we decided to merge the pharmacies to work
together. The process has not been easy; we have all learned
a lot and work as a team. We recognize that the weakness of
one is the strength of the other. We have gone through difcult
times, and we have not stopped having faith that we are in the
Southern Zone with a purpose.
The values that we learned as children, teamwork, faith in God,
the struggle despite economic problems, health, and any other
circumstance give us the conviction that this will be temporary
while focusing on our goals and dreams.
After the branch in Cortés suffered a ood and many losses, we
decided to build our own store in Cuatro Esquinas, located next
to the supermarket. At Farmacias Ibarra, you will feel safe, with
attentive staff, ready to serve you and attend to your concerns.
