Because of these our efforts in sustainable best practices, we have been awarded the maximum five green leaves from the Costa Rican Tourist Board for our compliance with the CST (Certification for Sustainable Tourism), a new program to encourage Ecological and Sustainable Tourism in this country.
We are proud that we have obtained a 100% ranking and the highest score of all participating hotels in Costa Rica.
Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation and Inn has 30 acres of hard bean coffee which is certified organic by the Rain Forest Alliance, an international organization called BCS OKO Garantie and is certified sustainable by ICAFE, the Costa Rican National Organization for Coffee. We have planted over 5,000 native trees on our plantations producing shade for our organic coffee and with the help of the environmental protection agency (MINAET) and local school children. We have also created biological corridors for the birds and animals of the area.
We use no agrochemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides on the farm preferring to apply the natural compost from our vermiculture (worm beds) and composting at the hotel and to use the natural enemies of the fungi and pests which can plague coffee.
