Puerto Jiménez in Southern Costa Rica is bathed by the waters off the Pacific Ocean. Here you’ll find the freshest air and the purest water in the world. Home to the Happiest People in The World and Costa Ricans living up to their saying- Pura Vida. The Golfo Dulce’s river mouths are thick with mangrove and endangered species. Waters are inhabited and visited by dolphins, humpback whales, turtles and other elusive species such as the whale shark. Endangering the integrity of Golfo Dulce and nearby watersheds, large hotel and residential developments lurk on the horizon unless we are careful. Osa has gradually prospered thanks to a low-intensity tourism industry in the hands of Costa Ricans and foreigners who have made Osa their home.
The primary mission of OsaGreenTV is to protect wild areas in and around Corcovado National Park. By preserving 200+ acres of rainforest, promoting environmental educational awareness and supporting sustainable eco tourism in rural areas. We promote the use of natural materials and resources when building and educate about sustainable building methods using bamboo, teak, cob, limestone, reusable and recycled materials. My Youtube channels support Costa Rican made conservation videos and powerpoint presentations regarding environmentalism on the Osa Peninsula. We promote economic growth in rural areas and support low intensity development in the hands of local people and Costa Rican entrepreneurs.
For years Crocodile Bay Resort has been talking about building it, 1st throwing millions of dollars at it to make it look slick for the global market. Their construction of a Hilton hotel in the area and the consequent Botanika real estate development that entails would be the hammer blow that starts a chain of unwanted development in and around Puerto Jimenez. All the permits of this hotel and marina have been approved, however, there is a last resort that we can use. We can write to the senior executives of Hilton, informing them that a development of this size is not welcome in the zone and that any transgression and infraction by part of those involved in the project, will be monitored, and will be taken to the press.
