Adventure Tours from Hacienda Guchipelin has recently been awarded with Level 4 in sustainability. This is a great recognition for the effort to be more sustainable in all of our practices and all of our work. The best part of it is that the staff has a new way of looking at things.
According to the the Ministry of Tourism of Costa Rica in the web site:
Sustainability, as a model of development, seeks to meet the current demands of society without compromising the rights of future generations to meet theirs. That is to say, the development of the country cannot be based on the unbalanced exploitation of resources (natural, cultural, social, etc.) to meet the demands of society (food, housing, health, employment) because these are the only resources we have, and that future generations have, to meet our and their own needs.
