If you're planning a trip to Costa Rica, you may have noticed that many hotels, resorts, and tour companies tout their commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism. But how do you know which companies are truly dedicated to these values, and how can you ensure that your vacation aligns with your own sustainability goals?
One way to determine a company's commitment to sustainable tourism is through certification. In Costa Rica, there are several organizations that certify hotels, tour operators, and other tourism-related businesses based on their commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism practices.
One such organization is the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT). The ICT has developed a certification program called the "Certificate for Sustainable Tourism" (CST), which recognizes businesses that meet specific criteria related to sustainability, social responsibility, and environmental protection. Companies that earn the CST have demonstrated a commitment to minimizing their impact on the environment, supporting local communities, and promoting cultural preservation.
When you book a trip with a CST-certified company, you can be confident that you're supporting a business that is committed to sustainable tourism practices. And, by choosing a CST-certified company, you can have a positive impact on the local community and environment while still enjoying an unforgettable vacation experience.
