Montezuma, Costa Rica – For many countries across the world tourism is one of the most significant contributors to their economy, but unfortunately, tourism while beneficial to the economy is not necessarily such a positive influence on the local environment. In recent years the world has become more aware of topics such as global warming and being a little bit more environmentally conscious, but for one hotel owner in particular environmental projects have long been part of their routine.
Long before environmentalism became popular, at least for the general public Patricia one of the owners of the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Montezuma has been organizing and leading local environmental projects. As one of the leading family hotels in Costa Rica, the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort owners understand the importance of looking after the local environment, both for today’s business but also for future generations.
Consequently, Patricia, and some of the other owners of the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort, have organized beach clean-ups for many years, typically when the amount of plastic waste washing up on the beach has become excessive.
Generally speaking, this is usually after the rainy season. Patricia regularly cleans and maintains her own beach and the neighboring beach at Piedra Colorado river. Patricia is also on the Board of Directors of the Karen Mogenssen Reserve. The Costa Rica Beach Resort works to fundraise for the reserve to purchase and protect more land. They ask their hotel guests if they would like to contribute $1 per day during their stay to be donated to the reserve, along with personal donations and fundraising.
“I am lucky enough to live and work in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, and it is one of my driving passions, to ensure it stays that way,” said Patricia of Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. “Sometimes when I see all of the plastic waste being deposited on our beautiful beaches, it can be soul destroying, but I am determined to keep working hard to eradicate the problem, and preserve our beautiful beach resorts for future generations. I hope that our future generations get to experience the wonder that is Montezuma Beach.”
