First Time at HQ
/ Leave a comment

After a couple of months after being a part of the EcoCostaRicaTravel team, today and for a couple of weeks I’ve had the opportunity to work directly at our Headquarters at Escondido, California.

I will start by saying that I met the team from a distance, joining the company from Colombia. They have always been 100% receptive to the feedback that I had for the different areas of improvement, and were very considerate of the things that entailed working from a different country. That being said, I had no idea that I would come to find a family in such a diverse team.

Escondido is gorgeous, like a dry mountain range that was swallowed by the pacific several million years ago. Full of wildlife, scenery that vary from small mining towns and livestock ranches, to the pacific coastline beaches, piers and multi million dollar homes.

The view from the office is unlike anywhere I’ve worked at. Coming from the city where my view is usually gray days and endless office buildings in Bogota.

The team is conformed of very dedicated people with a very unique and contagious passion for Ecology. They have a heightened awareness for the current state that our planet is in and how they can minimize their footprint on it. I am a toddler in this aspect but my eyes have been opened and I am absolutely eager to learn and apply this.

EcoCostaRicaTravel is about having this same conscience and understanding that it is not a limitation, but a way of life. It is understanding the world we live in and what we as humans can do to minimize the effect we drive. It is about knowing that this consciousness does not limit the traveling that we can do, nor the fun we can have. Moreover, knowing that luxury is not the inverse of Eco or Sustainable, but that it can go hand in hand. At the end of the day, I feel better about it. Are you ready to feel the same way?  

Hurricane Season 2016
/ Leave a comment

For the team at EcoCostaRicaTravel, safety of our Eco Friendly travelers is the highest priority and we believe knowledge and awareness are the path to a wonderful and safe trip. If you are traveling to Costa Rica in hurricane season, both Pacific and Atlantic (Pacific hurricane season begins on May 15 and Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1), we have very good news for you. Unlike most destinations in this general area, Costa Rica is considered a Hurricane-Free Zone. In the last 100 years, only Hurricane Cesar and Hurricane Mitch (1996 and 1998) have traveled all the way across the Central American landmass.
Costa Rica almost always gets wonderful heavy rains from the hurricanes that form in the Atlantic and rarely on the Pacific side. However, as you can see from the NOAA maps, the storm itself does not hit Costa Rica.

We are sharing maps of hurricane paths of the past 100 years from NOAA and links for even more information
