    For four years, the Jacó Impact Social Movement has changed the way of thinking and acting of a large part of the people of Constance who live in the coastal town (Jacó). Its representative Yorgina Ureña, as a prepared woman and also a professional surfer, has led activities in areas such as: Environmental (with cleaning of beaches and rivers), cigarette butt collection campaigns and recycling workshops).

It is worth noting that the most characteristic of Jacó Impact is teamwork, solidarity and attention for everything related to the community.

    Jacó Impact in conjunction with organizations such as Vida Azana, Buena Nota Hostel, Jacó Walk and Jacó Surf Experience, carried out a clean-up of the beach and other areas of the community, where they collected approximately 25 kilos of garbage and 1,000 cigarette butts.

    The activity had the participation of 40 volunteers, all of them with the purpose of always giving the natural essence of the Costa Rican way of being. “The reality”, Ureña says, “will always be that you must have a sense of belonging, even if we do not all live in the same community, the purpose is to maintain order, cleanliness, love and cultural value”.
