At Finca Rosa Blanca, we are honored and proud to again receive our elite-level sustainable certification under Costa Rica’s Certification for Sustainable Tourist (CST) program.

According to the CST, sustainable tourism is “the balanced intention to use appropriately our natural and cultural resources, to improve the quality of life of local communities and to obtain economic success in the activity, which will also contribute to the national development.” In other words, we work to protect the environment, our community, our people, and our greater nation and world. And through us, our guests do, too.

This is one of the country’s highest honors in responsible tourism. The certification recognizes Finca Rosa Blanca’s efforts to reduce our impact (including being carbon-neutral), prioritize conservation, involve our community, support local cultural experiences, stimulate the Costa Rican economy, educate both our staff and our clients, and protect the environment.

We are also proud to hold a 5 out of 5 ranking from Costa Rica’s "Blue Ecological Flag" program. This recognition awards our work to mitigate, reduce, and reverse climate change, both at Finca Rosa Blanca and on our certified organic coffee farm.

Finca Rosa Blanca to Be Featured on Leave No Trace (TV Show)

We are so excited to welcome the crew of Leave No Trace, a luxury travel show that scours the globe in search of the most breathtaking, inspiring, and incredible experiences that focus on ecotourism, sustainability, and social responsibility.

The show was born of the desire to demonstrate that even the most luxurious, most spectacular, and most unique travel experiences can also be environmentally responsible.

In the first season, host Richard Crawford traveled to extraordinary destinations – from Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas and the Outer Hebrides of Scotland to seeking orangutans in Malaysia and glamping in Kenya’s Massai Mara. Next stop: Finca Rosa Blanca, at the crossroads of regenerative luxury, organic coffee farming, cultural explorations, and Costa Rican cuisine that creatively honors the culinary traditions of the coffee highlands.

Our episode will air in 2023.
