My #eco escape to @ParadorQuepos: Costa Rica’s #Sustainable Jewel @Visit_CostaRica #ecotourism

Before it was time to say goodbye to Parador, I sat down with the President of Parador, Mrs. Marja Schans, (who runs the hotel with her husband and Vice President, Diego Gonzalez) and Resident Manager Mr. Jorge Rodriguez. With pride in their eyes, Mrs. Schans and Mr. Rodriguez talked to me about the thrill of Parador’s recent awards , as well as the hotel’s dedication to sustainable tourism, community outreach and desire to preserve Costa Rica’s precious natural resources. We chatted about their support of local non-profit organizations such as Titi Conservation Alliance, COPAZA, Roberta Felix, Omar Dengo, as well as their participation in reforestation efforts and community beach clean-up programs. Mrs. Schans and Mr. Rodriguez regularly send out their staff to plant trees and monitor and clean their community’s beaches and jungles.
