Ways we Work with Community and Education 2018-06-21T13:56:28+00:00

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, a number of 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.

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

Find out how guest donations are helping inspire the next generation to environmental stewards.

Schools in the area such as Colegio Santa Teresa often have limited resources. We work with the non-profit organization Earth Equilibrium to support Colegio Santa Teresa through their “Learning is Change” program. This education program teaches the young students about the importance of environmental stewardship, and is fully funded by the generous donations of our guests. Donations also help provide basic school supplies for around 200 kids.

LOCAL PRODUCTS

From tasty ingredients to sumptuous bath products, immerse yourself in everything Costa Rica!

At Latitude 10°, 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 too. 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.

TRAVEL LOCALLY, TRAVEL AUTHENTICALLY

“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.”
