As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe issue all our guests with reusable water bottles to reduce the need for single use plastics.
We issue all guests with a Code of Conduct detailing information and guidance of what we expect and specifically highlighting the environmental actions they can take while in Costa Rica. This includes guidance on water conservation, energy conservation, waste disposal and using environmentally safe and biodegradable toiletries.
We and our partners do not promote any captive animal experiences other than those required to protect and nurture endangered species. Such operations must demonstrate they are operating to the highest ethical, welfare and ecological standards - as independently audited by an NGO, charity or government approved body, before being considered.
In Golfo Dulce guests will be able to take part in research experiments to further our knowledge of the local ecosystem assisted by a local conservation biologist. In Arenal, guests will be able to take part in volcanology experiments with an esteemed local expert.
PeopleWe are firmly committed to “local delivery”. This stance is defined by our commitment to only use local guides and tour support staff. We do not employ Tour Leaders from the UK. This ensures that we are investing in our chosen destinations and their local communities.
We actively give priority to local suppliers and service providers that demonstrate an active stance regarding their employees social and economic rights. Our excursions and activities focus on the local community. In Heredia, guests will visit the Costa Rica Meadery to learn the secrets of beekeeping. The Costa Rica Meadery supports family farms to promote beekeeping and improves the biodiversity of Costa Rica’s tropical forests. In Golfo Dulce, you will be able to meet the hotel’s local farmers and understand how they support the local community providing organic produce from meat to vegetables to plant-based medicines.
Our tours and tailor-made itineraries provide the opportunity to visit local social projects either as an included activity or as an optional excursion. All such projects are vetted to ensure they provide either financial, social or community benefit.
