Tomorrow's a big day for us: we get evaluated for the Certification for Sustainable Tourism! Ever since El Remanso's creation, we've strived to make the most positive impact in our surroundings, producing 100% of our energy from renewable resources, putting our property into conservation, working with local providers, cooking with as many organic ingredients as we can get, refusing to treat our pool with chemicals or placing air-conditioning and cable in our rooms, hiring only local people, inviting you to enjoy the rainforest in its most natural state and many other efforts. We are constantly trying to do things better and this certification is our opportunity to see how well we are doing! Tomorrow the Costa Rican Tourism Board will take a thorough look through the lodge, talk to workers and guests, take all the evidence we have managed to gather for the certification and then take it all to be evaluated with a team of experts. Hopefully in about a month or two we should know the results! Please send us your good wishes. We’ll let you know how it goes! For more information on this certification, please visit
