Earth Day 2012 celebration!

El Remanso's staff, together with their families participated in the annual Earth Day celebration yesterday, April 22nd, in the local community town of Puerto Jiménez. The events started at 9 o'clock with a "Earth Day parade" of local conservation organizations and students from the local schools.

Pediatrician's visit for local kids at El Remanso

Last Sunday we had a pediatrician from San José here at El Remanso to visit the children of our staff and kids from the local community. We transformed one of the cabins to an improvised "visiting practice" for the day. Costa Rica is well known for it's good healthcare system but the remote area of the Osa Peninsula does not count with a specialist pediatrician. The kids enjoyed the day with some games and a lunch after the doctor's visit!

How much did you know about Vanilla?

And we are not talking about our wonderful cabin! A part from giving its name to one of our Deluxe Cabins, we have several vanilla plants flowering right now at El Remanso Lodge.
