It Takes a Village…

They say, “it takes a village to raise a child”, and all of us at Florblanca couldn’t agree more with this statement! It is difficult to express just how important community is in the lives of children, but it all starts at school where they learn about our culture, traditions, and essential knowledge for the future. The need for a quality education in a positive learning environment is so valuable to students now, which is why we knew exactly what we wanted to do when an opportunity came our way… 

This year, there was a need in our local schools for more space and enclosures to teach the rapidly expanding student population. There was not a doubt in our minds that we needed to contribute to this effort! After all, we could each recall memories of chatting a little too loudly to a friend sitting next to us in class, feeling extra loved by that one special teacher, and using our given talents to exceed in a subject we were passionate about. 

School is where we each begin to discover ourselves – and we believe that our community thrives off the uniqueness each student brings to their home and to the classroom. These students are the future leaders of not only our community and world, but even this resort.

Thanks to the effort from our staff and guests, we were able to donate tents which allow additional students to receive a high-quality education. This would not have been possible without the kindness and generosity of those who support us at Florblanca Costa Rica.

So, when you come to visit the breathtaking beaches of Santa Teresa with Florblanca, you can rest well and feel connected to the community knowing that we share the same value as you – loving those around us. Thank you for your support that allows us to help students in our community experience a brighter future. You are making a difference in their lives by staying with us. You have become a part of their village.
