olas-verdes-sustainability-tour

To encompass all of the hotel’s initiatives, a sustainability tour of the property was created so the staff could lead guests along a simple path from one end of the property to the other hitting key points on the way before finishing at the bar. Now, university groups from around Costa Rica and abroad come to see the tour and use the hotel as a case study in their research. For cultural interpretation, there is some passive information about the geographic themes for each building and associated cultures, but the staff also represent the local culture for different occasions by wearing traditional costumes or hats on specific holidays such as independence day and 25th of July. The hotel also has donated to and received training from the Asociación Zonas Azules, which is an NGO dedicated to preserving cultural traditions.
