Claiming the prize “Community Climate Neutral”, it is a source of reduction, removal and compensation of greenhouse gases. By 2021, the sum of all the efforts of the communities of Costa Rica will succeed in turning the country into “carbon neutral”.
Playa Blanca is well known for its beautiful white sand. In fact, this beach has been used many times to film commercials for national and international television, and even for movies. The beach is small and is easy to walk from end to end. Along the beach there is vegetation that provides plenty of shade. Playa Blanca is a five star beach, the only one in the Central Pacific with this distinction. No doubt this wonderful and nearby place will be etched in your mind.
Check-out from the hotel is on Sunday at 12 pm and we will go back to Heredia through a modern highway filled with beautiful look-outs.
