Sustainable development

To honor these requirements, Peninsula Papagayo created Creciendo Juntos to support local families and help the communities around Peninsula Papagayo reach Costa Rica's standard level of socio-economics.

In 2022, the resort leadership plans on further honoring the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by starting the measurement of emissions across the entire 1400 acres of the resort. These measurements will help leadership craft the plan for reaching net zero emissions by 2030.
