What impact does ‘With the jungle in our heads and our hands on our hearts’ generate?
In economic affairs, they make the operation of tourist services a profitable affair, operating -with excellency- the hotel of the Natural National Park Ensenada de Utría and articulating the different links in the value chain; they hold activities oriented towards the conservation of natural assets of the region, profiting from the phenomenon of migration of whales, turtles and birds, which occurs in the waters of the Pacific during the months of July to November each year. They promote -since 2010- the Migration Festival, which was born as a pedagogic and social cohesion strategy, to dynamize educational and productive processes, which place value on the environmental and cultural assets of the territory, stimulating the offer of tourist services, creating environmental sensitivity.
