Community & Education
at Latitude 10°
We believe the concept of “local” is the key to sustainable hospitality. That’s why we hire local and buy local, and invest in our community and natural surroundings.
Supporting Nicoya Peninsula Waterkeeper
For improved water quality along our beautiful coasts.
Once a month, our staff members volunteer with Nicoya Peninsula Watekeeper. This NGO’s mission is to monitor, protect and restore water quality in the coastal watersheds and marine ecosystems along the Nicoya Peninsula. They conduct research and field work, and run education programs too. We currently support their waste management best practices initiative.
Your donations help inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.
Schools in the area such as Colegio Santa Teresa often have limited resources. For years we have worked to support the young students of Colegio Santa Teresa with an education program that teaches them about the importance of environmental stewardship.
Since its inception, the program has been fully funded by the generous donations of our guests. Donations have also helped provide basic school supplies for around 200 kids.
Immerse yourself in everything Costa Rica!
We make a conscious effort to source as many products as we can from as close to home as possible. The fish we serve is caught in nearby Malpais, and much of our restaurant food comes from just around the corner. Our minibars are stocked with only local drinks and snacks, and our organic, flavorsome coffee is of course Costa Rican. Guests can enjoy 100% Costa Rican bathroom amenities, and our resort furniture is also locally made.
“On our second-to-last day we requested something special for our last dinner: “Could we have Lobster and Steak?” We weren’t sure if they would be able to do it, but the next morning, low and behold, the Chef stopped to show us something he was carrying. He pulled a lobster out of his bag! He was able to find one that was caught by a local fisherman just the day before.”
