We believe in giving back to the community and organizations that have helped foster our success. Every year, we allocate a percentage of our profits toward charitable organizations that are voted on by our staff. We have attempted to maintain a balance between organizations that focus on assisting people, wildlife & mature when selecting charities each year. Here are a few of the non-profits we are proud to sponsor:
The Billfish Foundation — The only non-profit organization dedicated solely to conserving and enhancing billfish and tuna populations around the world. A three tiered strategy of research, education and advocacy is employed by TBF in order to create marine conservation strategies that benefit oceanic resources while also empowering the recreational fishing community. We believe in the importance of protecting Costa Rica’s marine population from commercial fishing, as well as supporting the greater good that the sport fishing industry contributes to like conservation and the local economy, and therefore are corporate members of TBF.

Manos Abiertos (open arms) — If you ever start to lose faith in humanity, you need to pay a visit to the incredible facilities of this organization. A non-profit institution dedicated to the caring and attention of children, adolescents and adults with physical and mental ailments. They help people with chronic sicknesses, cerebral paralysis, cancer, AIDS, and other terminal conditions. All patients are extremely impoverished or are in a state of abandonment. This group of incredible individuals takes care of those poor souls who are too great a burden for even the Costa Rican public hospitals. What was once a very humble facility has, through generous donors from around the world, grown into a full-scale hospital that gives quality medical care, attention and love to those who would otherwise be forgotten. Along with a financial contribution on behalf of the company, our staff donates time, clothing and other needed materials several times each year. Visit the Manos Abiertos Website.
Amigos de los Parques — an organization that helps to fund and protect the national parks of Costa Rica, which make up over 20% of the country’s territory. The parks are often under-funded and are regularly being infringed upon by poachers and unscrupulous land developers, so they need constant vigilance and support from the for-profit community that benefits from their
existence – like the tourism industry. We are proud to be associated with this organization and their bold efforts to maintain Costa Rica’s excellent nature preserves. Amigos Website.
