For good sustainable development, a balance must be sought between the appropriate use of natural and cultural resources, the quality of life of the communities and the economic success of the activity. This contributing to the economy of the country but without affecting future generations. For this, the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) created the tourism sustainability certification (CST) so that the companies that develop with this activity become aware and make proper use of their resources without harming the environment or the communities that surround.
The main purpose of the CST is to turn the concept of sustainability into something real, that is put into practice and that is necessary for the context of the country's tourism competitiveness. With this, tourism companies are motivated to improve the way they use natural and social resources to better position themselves in the market. In addition, it motivates them to help their communities, which helps their economy.
To qualify companies there are two levels: The Basic and the Elite. Il Viaggio Travel is proud to be an Elite Level company where the improvement and continuity of the management process has been demonstrated according to the criteria established by the ICT Standard 2.0.
DONATAPA Environmental Project
Il Viaggio Travel is part of the Donatapa Project. This is a social and environmental responsibility project that anyone can join in by donating all 2-4-5 types of plastic. With it we are going to create plastic wood to design and build everyday products such as tables, chairs, garbage cans, among others. Donatapa's flagship project is the implementation of Accessible Beaches throughout Costa Rica with the use of retractable walkways made with plastic wood. Our dream is that all the country's beaches offer an accessible space to people with disabilities.
