Why Lokal Recommends Osa Rural Tours

Background

Cooperative started in 2014| Locally Owned with 100% local staff

A Unique Story

The Osa Rural Tours cooperative (COOPETURIC) was formed in 2014 as a joint initiative between the Corcovado Foundation and Neotropica Foundation. Local families were educated and capacitated to develop low impact tourism projects on their property and now offer a wide range of activities for travelers to experience. As part of their mission to help protect the region the cooperative is also in the process of generating clean, renewable energy with their own water sources through hydraulic pumps.

Community Connection

5% of all revenue made from tourism goes back to the cooperative to improve infrastructure and the needs of each community.

Environmental Engagement

Generating clean energy through hydraulic pumps is a part of Osa Rural Tour's mission.
