Villa Blanca has been accepted as a "Gold Level Green Leader" in the TripAdvisor® GreenLeaders™ program,
which helps travelers around the world plan "greener" trips by highlighting hotels that engage in environmentally friendly practices.
This is how we deliver exceptional experiences in Costa Rica that are shaped around the unique bio-regions within the four climate zones in which we operate.
Reducing our carbon footprint while increasing our activity in protecting the natural resources in our areas of operation is one of our key objectives. The other is the economic sustainability of the communities adjacent to the places where we operate. We believe that Costa Rica's natural resources include its people, heritage, and culture.
Therefore, we actively support programs and initiatives in the towns and communities surrounding each hotel, including our long-standing commitment to hire locally.
Not only are we conscious of our methane and carbon footprints. We are also aware of the footprints we leave on the 2,000-acre Los Angeles Cloud Forest Private Biological Reserve under our management.
Our commitment is to minimize the disruption of flora and fauna in the reserve and surrounding habitats by carefully designing trails and access infrastructure so that guests can experience these rainforests as close to their original condition as possible.
