Responsible tourism: Costa Rica holiday, wildlife and adventure

Environment

We have selected properties that have been certified with the maximum 5 leaf grading for sustainability, issued by the Costa Rican Ministry of Tourism. Those with 5 leaves have the complete commitment to ensure their operations are sustainable including the use of renewable energy to reduce carbon emissions, the implementation of habitat restoration for wildlife benefit, eco-sensitive construction to ensure environmental damage is minimised, water saving and re-use to reduce the use of the valuable resource, correct recycling and disposal of waste to reduce landfill and possible damage to the environment and harming of wildlife, plus, the stimulating education of tourists about conservation and Costa Rica's environment. Some of our selected lodges with the audited 5 leaf certification include El Romanso and El Silencio, plus, Arenal Nayara Hotel & Garden, Finca Rosa Blanca. El Romanso and El Silencio are powered using renewable energy including solar and hydro, plus, implement recycling and purchase of local food products.

Community

Locally owned lodges are selected to ensure communities benefit from tourism and have a direction in the future of Costa Rica's tourism. Artisan workshops and agricultural producers are included in the itinerary, to give an insight into the country's culture and support rural communities through stimulation of tourism income. We include a visit to a coffee plantation to help support rural agricultural communities and the Costa Rican coffee industry, an essential export. The coffee plantation, Finca Rosa, is a family owned Rainforest Alliance certified, organic operation. The plantation has planted over 5,000 native trees with the help of local school children, producing shade and nitrogen for the organic coffee and have created biological corridors for the birds and animals of the area. The coffee is planted following the natural topography of the farm to avoid erosion and water waste and is protected by living fences planted with native shrubs and trees.
