Certification of Sustainable Tourism Commitment All of hotels used by Distinctive Expeditions hold a Certificate of Sustainable Tourism. In order to qualify for this award, the hotel must practice conservation in three areas. The resort must be environmentally conscious by ensuring any activity minimizes damage to the environment (flora, fauna, water, soils, energy use, contamination, etc.) and ideally tries to benefit the environment in a positive way (through protection and conservation).The property must be socially and culturally aware so that any activity does not harm, and may revitalize the social structure or culture of the community where it is located. Finally the hotel must be economically responsible by continuing to contribute to the economic well-being of the local community. A sustainable business should benefit its owners, its employees, and its neighbors. Distinctive Expeditions is committed to using hotel/lodges/resorts who are recognized for their efforts in these three areas of conservation practices in Costa Rica so our country can be enjoyed by photographers, travellers and citizens for generations to come.
