A volunteer group, the Vicinos Naccion, has created and implemented a beach cleaning and protection education group for the three beaches of Ballena National Park: Playa Uvita, Playa Colonia, and Playa Pinuelas ecosystems.
The school is a not for profit project, serving Kinder-12th grade, which according to its website has a mission to, “create a bilingual educational setting…where students learn, explore, and grow with respect and attention to the environment, diversity and social aspects that exist around us.”
Uvita police officers have met no cross fire and have been seen as unthreatening while at the same time serving as a protective security measure in regards to the subtext of possible increased danger to the area on account of its rapid growth and progress.
San Isidro commences its 4th year of the successful Singing Alive festival (Cantando la Vida) this weekend, January 14-16, at Finca Amrta (Organic Farm and Health Center) in the central-southern pacific coast of Costa Rica.
