Food is Farm-to-Table.
Blue Osa gets all its fruit and vegetables from their own organic garden, coconut trees and pineapple patches on the property or from the local fishermen and neighboring farmers who use principles of organic farming.Blue Osa Invests in the Local People & the Community. The staff at Blue Osa are employed year-round. Many hotels in Costa Rica employ staff seasonally during peak season and fire them during the “off season”. This has led to higher crime rates in the country during the times of low employment. We have an employee training system and also actively sponsor kids at a local school. Click here to read more.
Blue Osa Promotes Local Eco-Friendly Businesses.
Hosting a local farmer’s market on Tuesdays, local jewelers, ice-cream vendors, and artisans display their wares for guests to buy. Blue Osa also promotes local sustainable eco-tours to the rainforest and contributes a portion of the Animal Sanctuary tour fees directly to the animal sanctuary. Blue Osa also encourages their guests to use Nature Air, the world’s only carbon neutral airline. Some of Blue Osa’s vacation packages include the price of a flight on Nature Air. We also encourage their guests to use public transportation, the local collectivo.
