“Why we came to Costa Rica” by Bastien Vansoye
With the idea of starting our travel agency back home!
But let us explain that more specifically. 3 months ago we decided to use our backgrounds of world travellers and university graduates to give another travel experiences to people: a more sustainable experiences!
With Costa Rica as the leader of eco-friendly tourism, it quickly seems that it was the right place to learn more about it. Our plan was simple: find the best local tour operator we would like to work with in Belgium and propose them to come work with them for a while. Thanks to the Certification for Sustainable Tourism (CST) that certifies tour operators acting with a sustainable model, we quickly identified Green World Adventures and its level four at the CST.
A couple of mails and Skype calls later, everything was settled down: we would begin to work with them on September first and help for two months on new clients search, itineraries design and daily tasks.
After two weeks with Alberto and Diego from Green World Adventures, it was definitely “seguro” that we were in the right place to learn about sustainable tourism, and all that in a great atmosphere! We are looking forward to the coming weeks.
