PlanetCosta Rica is the birthplace of ecotourism and as such is also the placce where this activity has achieved the highest level of success with responsible environmental policies being held by most hotels and tourist businesses.
Internally our partners encourage the reusing, recycling and generally do their best to reduce the overall impact our operation has on the environment. This trip heads to some of the most remote and wild national parks in Costa Rica and therefore it is crucial that the destinations we visit are left as we found them. Included in the welcome packet that we give to our clients, we also include brochures with environmental information to advise travelers to reduce impact.
Our colleagues participate in the Certificate in Sustainable Tourism (CST) program which rates businesses on the degree to which they comply with a sustainable model of natural, cultural and social resource management.
This trip takes you to Nicuesa Lodge which is an entirely eco-friendly resort, which allows clients to connect to the natural world of the rainforest and ocean through education and activities.
