Santa Teresa, Costa Rica beaches win Ecological Blue Flag Award

Walk out on the beach in front of Pranamar Oceanfront Villas & Yoga Retreat in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica and you are greeted with a stunning view of a long, curving beach of light sand, volcanic reef and rolling blue waves. What you don’t see is trash.

Pranamar’s clean beach of Playa Hermosa (“Beautiful Beach”) is thanks to the hard work and dedication of Costa Rican Maxfred Moraga and the committed business owners who sponsor him in a community beach cleaning program. The effort was recognized recently when Playa Hermosa was honored once again with the Costa Rica Ecological Blue Flag Award by the Costa Rican Tourism Board for being one of the cleanest beaches in the country. The Santa Teresa area beaches of Playa Hermosa, Playa Santa Teresa, Playa Carmen and Mal Pais all received Ecological Blue Flag Awards for 2014, along with a record 104 other Costa Rica beaches, at a ceremony in March 2015.

Pack with a purpose when you visit Pranamar Villas in Costa Rica

Many guests at Pranamar Oceanfront Villas in Costa Rica – especially those who come on a Costa Rica yoga retreat – ask if there is anything they can do for our community they will be visiting. The desire to give back or contribute to the place people visit as tourists is a fast-growing movement around the world. Volunteer vacations, or volunteerism, are a very popular way to take a vacation. Another way is to “pack for a purpose” and bring needed school and community supplies to your vacation destination. “Every time there is a yoga retreat coming and they ask us if there is a way to help the community, we tell them to make a little space in their luggage and bring colored pencils, scissors, notebooks, coloring books, etc. to donate to the local schools,” commented Tania Bertolo, Concierge at Pranamar Oceanfront Villas & Yoga Retreat.
