Florblanca has teamed up with the Nicoya Peninsula Waterkeeper organization to help preserve and restore our land and marine resources here in Playa Santa Teresa. Our efforts with the Waterkeeper are in keeping with our Community Outreach and Development work through our Sustainability program.

We recently joined the Waterkeeper and local Mal Pais school children on a project to reforest the riverbanks.  Our Sustainability Director, Maricel Segura, joined the group and worked on planting trees and vegetation along the rivers. Together with the Costa Rica Blue Flag Ecological Program, we are all working towards protecting and sustaining our beaches and our land so that we can enjoy them today and in the years to come.

We are so excited to have the Waterkeepers right here in Santa Teresa!  This is a wonderful opportunity for our community and a powerful way for Florblanca to continue moving towards sustainability and ecotourism in Costa Rica.
