Tourism is a strategic tool to combat poverty and encourage development, especially in countries whose socioeconomic situation is at risk. But to manage all national efforts without any plan and without determining the class of tourism that's desired can compromise the future of nations. Costa Rica is no exception.
Sustainable tourism results in being more attractive to travelers, savings in operations and preferential treatment, including economic and business benefits.
Costa Rica is host to a meeting of the International Working Group on Sustainable Tourism, which will mull environmentally friendly initiatives that could be adopted in tourism policies.
According to industry players, rural community tourism is growing "slowly, but surely."
At the International Tourism Fair of Madrid 2012 (FITUR), the region is jointly aiming to give impetus to sustainable tourism.
