We at ItsMyCasa believe strongly in creating as small a ecological footprint as is possible.

Our goal is to support groups that we have found that help the flora and fauna to recover from the damages done by rapid development.

We encourage our guests to enjoy our natural surroundings while supporting ecological groups that keep our eco-tourism sustainable.

Ecological tourist information

  • Enjoy nature but don't chase or touch wild animals.
  • Leave everything as you found it, don't remove anything that is part of the natural environment such as rocks, shells, or plants.
  • Stay on the trails: trails are designed to prevent the erosion caused by the transit of humans on the soil.
  • Encourage responsible behavior to your family and others.
  • Report environmental damage to authorities.
  • Participate in local conservation activities.

Please, Don't feed the Wildlife: You might find feeding the wildlife to be a fascinating experience. You probably think that they need to be fed. But the truth is that you are actually harming them:

  • Feeding interferes with the wildlife's natural habits and upsets the balance of their lifestyles.
  • Wildlife can be susceptible to human diseases. They can actually die from bacteria transferred from you, that has no ill effect on humans.
  • Irregular feeding leads to an aggressive behavior towards humans and other species.
  • When we feed an animal, we are actually affecting its' natural diet. Fruits, especially those containing pesticides, can upset their digestive system or cause dental problems that can lead to death.
  • Feeding creates a dangerous dependency on humans that diminishes the wildlife's survival capabilities.
  • Contact with humans facilitates poaching and the trade in illegal wildlife and makes them an easy target for hunters.
  • Please help us spread the word, be an eco-tourist by explaining to your fellow companions. Let nature take its' own course!

Kids Saving the Rainforest

ItsMyCasa is also proud to support monkey bridges (blue ropes suspended across roads) so the endangered and beloved mono tití's can cross roads without having to go down to the dangerous and unprotected ground. It also keeps the monkeys in the area from using the dangerous electric lines to cross the road.
These bridges are provided by the organization of kids saving the rain forest. Please visit their site and help this very endangered species survive.

We are but one species on this beautiful world,
let us help protect the diversity given to us as a gift.

The monkeys here were amazing – we saw all 3 kinds and heard the howlers welcome us the 1st morning and send us off our last morning. Thank you all for making our wedding a very memorable experience.

Just hanging around the pool at the casa, we saw howlers, about 30 mono Titis, the white-faced monkeys and even a 3-toed sloth right on the railing next to the hammock!

The best part of the vacation though was lazing around the pool, sunning and reading books and, of course, our daily afternoon visits from the monkeys. We saw a lot of mono titis, a few white-face and saw (and heard) a howler. The real treat was a couple of the mono titis carrying babies on their backs! Now, time to head back to reality although we are very rested and rejuvenated. We love Costa Rica and hope to return soon. Thanks for everything!
