Costa Rica luxury tailormade vacation
Description of Costa Rica luxury tailormade vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation 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 Turrialba, you will be able to see sustainability in action. Pacuare Lodge has launched an environmental education program for schools in nearby communities. Its goal is to raise awareness among local elementary school students of the importance of protecting their environment, and to promote the adoption of good practices that will help them have a more balanced relationship with nature and preserve natural resources for future generations. You will also be able to visit Bajo del Tigre, the village where most of the lodge’s staff live. Here you will see how the villagers live and how they are supporting the sustainability of their culture and environment.
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.
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.
In Turrialba, guests will have the rare opportunity to visit the Cabécar indigenous community to learn about their traditional hunting and fishing techniques, how they maintain their cultural traditions and learn about their use of natural medicines. To protect and respect the Cabécar culture, taking photographs is strictly prohibited.
