    Bandera Azul Ecológica Program in Punta Leona: A way of life

    For more than 8 years we have offered our visitors a vacational area in harmony with nature, surrounded by clear and safe beaches. Punta Leona’s staff consists of a security committee for the beaches Blanca, Mantas, and Limoncito to reinforce the Bandera Azul program. This award signifies not only a way of life but also a responsibility to environment and a constant search for improvement.

    The time and effort spent on health, nature, environmental education, and a quality of life has generated a change of attitude within Punta Leona. A series of environmental programs have created an awareness for improvement in daily activities, work, and free time pleasures among the committee members (beach members and community members).

    Thanks to Bandera Azul Ecológica we have begun to take action towards improvement in operations within our installations. This program has motivated technological innovations and a redesign of our internal procedures with positive results within and outside our community.

    Presently Punta Leona and its beaches Limoncito, Mantas, and Blanca have the exclusive honor of 4 stars in Costa Rica.
