Dogs become noble and adored members of millions of families and accordingly, they have to be treated like ones. For this reason, Perro Aventurero or Adventure Dog has decided to host a hiking event in the Botanical Garden, Else Kientzler, in Sarchí, where you can bring your mascots and enjoy a wonderful day and be able to hike with your dogs and get to listen to a free expositions on dog behavior and training.

Moreover, thanks to Perro Aventurero’s partnership with Adopciones Grecia, not only will you get to spend quality time with your mascots, you will also be able to hang out with stray dogs and possibly adopt one.

The event coordinators have also wanted to motivate and support national entrepreneurs by creating El Mercadito de los Perros, a.k.a the Dog’s Market, where you will be able to find artisanal products for dogs such as ice creams, fragrances, soaps, clothing wear and accessories.

With respect to Costa Rica, dog adoption has been increasing but it has not yet reached the level that has been expected, thus meaning that events such as these drastically aid in helping abandoned and homeless dogs to find a home and a family to live with.

The worldwide famous model and singer arrived in Costa Rica with their kids (North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm) to relax and indulge in the beaches of Costa Rica. Last time the renowned couple visited Costa Rica was in January of 2017, where they where in the pacific coast filming episodes for their well known show Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Who are they?

You could call Kim Kardashian a model, entrepreneur, reality TV star, socialite, either one is accurate. As for Kanye, people like to refer to him as one of the greatest rappers of all time, however, he has also delved into the fashion industry and partnered up with Adidas to create the most sought out shoe known to this day, the Yeezy. Knowing this, we ask ourselves the following question: why do they come visit Costa Rica and what is the bigger picture regarding Costa Rica’s attraction?

Interestingly enough, Costa Rica has been over the last couple of decades a magnificent place to vacation and stray away from fame and attention. Take for example Rafael Nadal visiting Dreams las Mareas in el Jobo de la cruz, Guanacaste or even world cup winner Raphäel Varane soothing in la Fortuna, San Carlos. The reason for this lies in the beauty of Costa Rica’s beaches, hotels, wildlife, and rainforests but most importantly in its people, who treat you as one of their own and welcome you with no prejudice whatsoever. Costa Rica stands out among America and is evidently a place where stress is dismissed because of the country’s intrinsic alleviating nature.

The mangrove trail will allow you to go at peace and learn all about the ecology of this essential ecosystem while you appreciate its inhabitants (monkeys, herons, crabs, racoons, crocodiles, sloths).

Wallmart is on the brink of employing 162 workers with disabilities in Mexico and Central America.

Wallmart in Mexico and Central America has decided to reach out to groups that they traditionally don’t go to, this being an indicator that the economy is finally reaching full employment. Their sub-manager of Corporate affairs, Mariela Pacheco, says they want to encourage the participation of diverse human talent, in an environment of equal opportunities in all areas of the company.

Diversity has now become a value-add for businesses and a growing number of firms are now including people with disabilities into the picture. By bringing in people who think or work differently due to their disability, companies are therefore bringing people who look at and solve problems differently. A job most times becomes a big part of someone’s identify, and therefore, it is imperative for individuals with disabilities to have the opportunity to work and help as best as they can in a business.

The vacant jobs in Wallmart are for the subsequent work positions: cashiers, cooks, shop assistants and butchers, production, drinks, groceries, backroom, bodega, area coordinators and assistants, managers, sub-managers, decorators, and store administrators.

Through their program, Wallmart without Barriers, the company has the goal of hiring 257 individuals in 2019, with 95 people already working alongside them; ultimately aiding in the reduction of the gap between employed people with disabilities and the general population.

All of this thus indicates that Costa Rica and Central America might be shifting their work paradigms and start including people who previously have never been given the chance to contribute or be an asset in a business.

3 Incredible National Parks On Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast

3 Incredible National Parks On Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast

June 3, 2019

Properties in Costa Rica

National parks abound in Costa Rica, making nature one of the most appealing reasons to visit. Indeed, some are surprised at just how many such parks there are across what is ultimately not a very large country! And because there are so many to choose from, it can help to break things down into regions when planning a trip.

In this piece we’ll do just that, with a focus on some of the national parks alongside the nation’s Pacific Coast. We’ll look at three parks, as well as some of the nearby towns and attractions that make them suitable for a full vacation.

Santa Rosa National Park

Santa Rosa National Park is almost the northernmost park in Costa Rica, and is just south of the Nicaraguan border. From a travel perspective, it’s also quite accessible because of its close proximity to the mid-sized city of Liberia. This isn’t necessarily one of the country’s best-known cities to people visiting from abroad, but it’s one that may come up in travel research because of the range of outdoor activities people tend to enjoy there: coffee farm tours, horseback riding, Tenorio River rafting, and even a nearby volcano trek. This, plus Liberia’s own international airport, makes it a perfect place to start a vacation.

As for Santa Rosa National Park, it was actually the first natural expanse of its kind officially established in Costa Rica. This happened in 1971, and ever since it’s served as one of the most striking parts of the country to visit. Santa Rosa is home to seaside mountains, miles of lush vegetation, unique flora and fauna, and gorgeous beaches (though some of them are rocky). It’s a virtually unmatched area for sightseeing and getting in touch with Central American nature.

Marino Las Baulas National Park

Marino Las Baulas National Park is located west of Santa Cruz in an area where small towns, beaches, and even some of the country’s casinos are the more typical tourist attractions. The casinos aren’t necessarily the draws they used to be given that they’re not as unique to travelers anymore. In particular, a lot of American tourists once frequented the casino in this area because they don’t always have access to them at home. However, with an emergent online casino business in the American Northeast, Americans no longer have to travel too far to enjoy casinos. Still, while they may not specifically draw tourists the way they used to, some indoor recreation such as a casion can still be enjoyed by people who wind up in the area and want to break up their time exploring the outdoors.

The park itself though remains the area’s main attraction, no matter what kind of trip you might be looking for. Marino Las Baulas National Park covers a fairly large area directly on the coast, and is known for its well-preserved beaches, its mangrove sanctuary, and even some of the local wildlife. You can spend most of a vacation here lounging on a gorgeous stretch of sand, but be sure to take a tour of the turtle (“baulas”) conservation areas as well!

Corcovado National Park

The first two parks discussed are farther north, but it seems only right to cover a more southern option as well – and Corcovado National Park doesn’t quite get enough attention. Located very close to the Panama border, it effectively comprises the bulk of the Osa Peninsula. As such it’s somewhat more remote than the options mentioned above – though it should be noted that even given this distinction, it’s only about a four-hour drive from San José.

Because Corcovado National Park is somewhat more remote, a vacation there can be a little bit more planned as well. That is to say, this park isn’t meant for casual sightseeing or beachside lounging, but rather for a pre-planned, organized trip. Most start such trips at Sirena Ranger Station, which is effectively a lodge where people can either take day trips out into the park, or, with an advance booking, stay overnight. From this station, guests in the park can enjoy hiking trails, access to the nearby coast, and a lush surrounding habitat where the local wildlife – including monkeys, exotic birds, and the like – is often on full display.
