Bonus points: During turtle nesting season (May to July) it is even possible to participate in a night excursion to watch the leatherback turtles nest their eggs.

Costa Rica Flamingp Beach Resort Earth Friendly RoomsHow green will your resort vacation be?  Flamingo Beach Resort has set earth friendly policies in place. For example: All of the products used in our housekeeping, food & beverage and laundry departments are biodegradable and certified as environmentally safe. They do not use any abrasive products that contain acids or bleach, and all paints are 100% lead-free. Before any garbage leaves our premises for the local landfill, all contents are completely sifted and any recyclable bags, bottles, cans and other plastic and/or metal products are separated for recycling. 

Energy use. The Resort works diligently to save energy in a number of important ways including the use of biodiesel fuel derived from cooking oil used in the kitchen, the installation and use of low-energy consumption lamps, light bulbs and appliances, and judicious use of washers, dryers and hot water heaters.

Water use. Water is one of the most precious resources in the dry, tropical forest, so they work particularly hard to maximize water savings through flow meters and pressure control, and carefully treat our wastewater at our own treatment plant that meets the highest international environmental standards and is constantly monitored and tested to improve water quality. 

Community connections. Assisting local communities is an important part of the commitment to creating a better world. For example, they collaborate closely with CEPIA Association-a non-profit organization that seeks to promote health, education, sports and culture for children and teenagers from low-income families in Guanacaste's coastal communities-by providing food, supplies, meeting and banquet spaces for a variety of their sponsored events.
