Get Involved and Grow Together
For guests who wish to make a difference while travelling in ways that are personally enriching for all involved,
This Peninsula Papagayo-wide initiative was created in 2001 to help provide education and economic opportunities and preserve tradition and culture for 19 different communities in the Guanacaste region. It is hoped that its recent new non-profit organization status will expand its outreach and impact.
Through relationships with local schools and organizations,
- Adults or children may become Backpack Buddies, filling a backpack at home with much-needed school supplies that will be delivered upon arrival to a student at one of 18 elementary and three area high schools, or can be personally delivered while school is in session
- Families or groups may participate in school outreach programs, including tutoring, cooking and sharing meals, playing sports games, and building or supplying a new classroom
- Families or groups may also support a family by providing meals, supplies or other needed goods, or even invite the family to join them at the resort for a meal and activities
The Resort is able to arrange five programs a day for five families or five individuals, and note that there is limited availability. Pre-advance booking through reservations is required, so reserve at time of booking or before your trip by calling the Resort directly at (506) 2696-0000.
