SUSTAINABILITY

At Parador Resort & Spa we are blessed to live in a country overflowing with natural beauty and resources, and are proud to be able share this gift with you, our guests. We’re duty-bound to help maintain, preserve and improve upon Costa Rica’s considerable assets.

 WE SHARE

Parador is strongly committed to the conservation of nature, supports local community projects and takes steps to reduce its impact on the environment. We'd like to invite you, our guest, to cooperate with the following foundations, all of which help benefit the community at large, and thank you in advance for your support.

 A fundamental frame of reference for responsible and sustainable tourism, the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism (GCET) is a comprehensive set of principles designed to guide key-players in tourism development. Addressed to governments, the travel industry, communities and tourists alike, it aims to help maximise the sector’s benefits while minimising its potentially negative impact on the environment, cultural heritage and societies across the globe.

Adopted in 1999 by the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization, its acknowledgement by the United Nations two years later expressly encouraged UNWTO to promote the effective follow-up of its provisions. Although not legally binding, the Code features a voluntary implementation mechanism through its recognition of the role of the World Committee on Tourism Ethics (WCTE), to which stakeholders may refer matters concerning the application and interpretation of the document.

 COPAZA

Copaza is a non-profit group dedicated to preventing violence and providing employment and social opportunities – with a particular emphasis on at-risk kids – in the Aguirre region of Costa Rica.

Through the implementation of cultural and sports programs and addressing employment and other public issues, Copaza works diligently towards creating and promoting a viable, self-sustaining and peaceful community.

TITI CONSERVATION ALLIANCE

Titi Conservation Alliance is devoted to protecting Costa Rica’s endangered Titi (squirrel) Monkey in the Manuel Antonio area through Sustainable Development, Habitat Reforestation and Environmental Education.Working closely with the community as well as other like-minded organizations, the Titi Conservation Alliance has – and continues to – make substantial contributions towards protecting and sustaining Costa Rica’s fecund but fragile Central Pacific region eco-system.

PACK FOR A PURPOSE

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination.
