Santos tours was established in 2003 as a community support organization in Los Santos area by two students of Tourism Administration of the Cartago Community College: Jonathan Cerdas and Carlos Marin. The pristine beauty of their native land inspired them to develop an organization to support local communities using rural tourism and adventure. Santos Projects combines these two elements with a concern for the social issues of the local communities and environmental conservation. Santos Projects provides guidance, education and inspirational environmental consciousness to more than 70 families who otherwise would not have such opportunities due to the remote location of their communities.
We believes that working with local communities directly is the most effective way to raise awareness about the environmental and conservation challenges. Los Santos region has been promoted as one of the best destinations for rural community tourism through its participation in various national tourism and commercial fairs.
We has many objectives within the communities of Los Santos area. The major goal is to transform the vision of community members and show them that there are many sustainable ways to improve their way of living, thus helping the planet where we all live. Volunteers are a key element in this process, because they help improve different local projects.
We received a certification from the Costa Rica National University for being the only local organization supporting the development of sustainable farms in the region. Santos Projects receives support from US and Canadian volunteer organizations.
We received a donation biodiesel Machine from International Student Volunteer to produce biodiesel for the ecological coffee famers.
Come, visit us, and lets do it together.
