      What is a Costa Rica Eco Hotel?

      Eco hotel is a term used to describe a hotel or accommodation that has made important environmental improvements to its structure in order to minimize its impact on the environment. The basic definition of a green hotel is an environmentally-responsible lodging that follows the practices of green living. These hotels have to be certified green by an independent third-party or by the state they are located in.

      Traditionally, these hotels were mostly presented as Eco Lodges because of their location, often in jungles, and their design inspired by the use of traditional building methods applied by skilled local craftsmen in areas, such as Costa Rica.Today, the term has developed to include properties in less “natural” locations that have invested in improving their “green” credentials..

      At Tico Travel we have a number of hotels that we work with that support these type of hotels so if you let us know, we will choose a hotel off our menu that meets this criteria
