Posada rural La Amistad – Isla de Chira
If you need to renew your energy for a few days, the small island of Chira is the perfect place since it is not easily accessible for travelers, even though it is located only an hour away from the tourist city of Puntarenas. Meals are traditional, made from ingredients bought in Puntarenas, and can be prepared in the oven using solar energy.
Of the 10 women who founded the women’s association Damas de Chira and created this project in 2000, there are only 3 left who are continuing this hard work. Their initial goal was to improve their incomes and send their children to school. They also work on reforestation projects and on fire prevention. Although the project was initially poorly received by the people in the community, they succeed to demonstrate that hard work and good management practice can provide real benefits in a community, thanks to community tourism.
The accommodation package includes breakfast for 2 people.
