Creating Blue River Resort & Hot Springs jungle hotel in Costa Rica is the realization of a dream. It's dream was to create a place where people and nature can come together in a harmonious and sustainable manner. It would be a place where families can enjoy quality time together, where one's mind, body and soul can be rejuvinated and where local people can access to the wonders in their own backyard. When Blue River Resort & Hot Springs was only an idea, the following statement for the resort's mission, vision and values was created:
"The Company's mission is to foster a unique brand of ecotourism that exposes international visitors and the children of Costa Rica to the natural wonders of the country in the form of a profitable business that practices the principles of sustainable development."
To achieve this mission while:
- Achieving and maintaining successful businesses
- Educating in true environmentalism and ecology
- Investing in children as an investment in our future
- Showcasing the natural beauty of Costa Rica"
"The company's values will achieve this mission by maintaining our hotel and partnership with our guests and children, by exposing people to the importance of ecology. The result is a win-win relationship for business with respect to return on investment as well as for the environment."
Being in Costa Rica's jungle, Blue River Hotel places great emphasis on sustaining the environment and supporting people living in the small communities in and around the hotel. They also run a rescue center for animals that provides sanctuary to the bird species that have been injured in the Rincon de la Vieja, Guanacaste region. They consider it their obligation to ensure that both local people and international visitors enjoy the natural beauty and qualities of the surroundings. The owners also believe the future is the hands of children and advocate investing in their future. The Resort offers immense opportunities to educate guests and locals about the environment. By practicing and educating good environmental practices, we will be a model for others.
The ownership also believes in supporting the people who live around this Costa Rica jungle hotel, especially the children. The Company has a partnership with schools in Costa Rica to bring children at the resort's expense for a one day experience, to learn about natural wonders of Costa Rica By hiring local workers, as much as possible, to build, maintain and operate the hotel and tours we hope to alleviate the employment struggles in the area.
