Today we learned about the culture of Costa Rica. The Osa Peninsula is a region of Costa Rica that protects about 80% of its land. Many locals started projects that harmonize with the culture of conservation in this region.

We landed at Playa Blanca and were greeted by many scarlet macaws as well as many other bird species. We embarked our buses to visit some of the families and to learn about their projects. We visited sites focused on gold panning and sugar, a cacao and vanilla plantation, the heart of palm projects, and explored the forest trail of an old farm that has recovered their ecosystem for conservation.
