Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.

4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.

 Lapa Rios - Costa Rica
Standard FB Room
Set in a private nature reserve, spread over 1,000 acres of rainforest, Lapa Rios Ecolodge overlooks the pristine point where the Golfo Dulce meets the Pacific Ocean. Built in harmony with the surrounding forest and beach, the main lodge and bungalows are connected by paths and steps. Sixteen spacious bungalows nestled within the rainforest exude tranquility. Lapa Rios is a model ecotourism project that exemplifies why “a forest left standing is worth more than one cut down”. It is an ideal vacation experience for people that like nature and will like to learn about conservation culture and biodiversity, honeymoon couples looking for a unique kind of experience, as well as families with older children wanting to spend some real quality time together. Activities at Lapa Rios are focused around the rainforest and the nearby ocean: rainforest hikes, bird watching, ocean kayaking, horseback riding or surfing. All guided tours help support the ongoing maintenance and land preservation of the rich Osa Peninsula biodiversity. Choosing to hike and learn about the rainforest interconnectedness, with a trained and experienced local guide will provide an authentic local interpretation and will help the community employee’s economic support. Guests can enjoy a relaxing massage, participate in yoga classes, relax at the pool with a tropical cocktail or just doze away in a hammock. Lapa Rios has won worldwide awards for social and environmental excellence, and it is featured as a sustainable tourism pioneer in many international publications and research projects. The Eco Lodge employs only local community members, is committed to environmentally sound practices and has been awarded Costa Rica’s highest sustainable tourism certification (CST).
