In Costa Rica tourism is an important activity for the country brand. It is in constant development and improvement in all the activities offered. In this way, a quality, competitive tourism development and excellent attention to visitors is guaranteed.

The ICT (Costa Rican Tourism Institute) works on different proposals so that the Costa Rican tourism industry maintains an excellent reputation in the international market. In the same way, through various programs, it promotes the visitation of nationals to different places in Costa Rica.

One of the programs is Social Tourism created in 2018. Hotels from different parts of the country participate in this program. The main objective is to promote alliances with communities and hotels in different areas and offer accessible and inclusive tourism.

By the year 2022 there were already 36 companies that participated and had received recognition for it. Different public entities and non-profit organizations have sought to offer activities that benefit the quality of life of the population, validating, as they say, the right of every human being to leisure and recreation through tourism.

“The project that we carry out within the ICT Social Tourism program consists of providing the opportunity for people with disabilities, children, youth, and adults from different parts of the country, to go to the sea to have the experience of adapted surfing, enjoy a day at the beach and the physical and mental health benefits that the sea provides.
