Our institution is part of the Dona Tapa Project, an environment and social responsibility project of the Costa Rican Accessible Tourism Net, aiming to make the Costa Rican beaches accessible to all people with any kind of disability or reduced mobility so they can enjoy the sand and the sea.
This Project consists in recollecting class 2, 4 and 5 polymer plastic and then recycle and value them in order to create plastic wood. With this material specialized items are created such as retractile runways, which provide an easier transit for the wheel chairs on the sand. The objective is that Costa Rica gets to be the first country in Central America with accessible beaches.
Through this project we support and are in accordance with:
- National strategy to separate, recuperate and value the residues (ENSRVR)
- National Plan for the Solid Residues Integral Management
- Objectives of the sustainable development
- Ecological Blue Flag
- Declaration for an accessible tourism for everybody in Latin America and the Caribbean
