As a hospitality business located on the idyllic Nicoya Peninsula, we’re committed to preserving the natural, beautiful habitat we call home and which sustains us. To that end, there are a number of eco-friendly projects and initiatives we’ve implemented and participate in.

We’re well aware that, today, visitors to such beautiful parts of the world as ours are as concerned with protecting their environment as they are exploring them and getting all they can out of their visits. We’re sure, then, should you visit us, you’ll be pleased to learn of our eco-friendly aspirations and activities, and will want to support us in our efforts.

Ocean Friendly Business Project

The aim of the Ocean Friendly Business project is to achieve harmony between commercial progress and the preservation of our peninsula’s coastal ecosystem – by respecting and preserving our unique environment.


Overseen by Nicoya Waterkeeper, a water pollution prevention organization, the project guides local businesses in sustainable, ocean-friendly practices via environmental training, tools, and resources. Ocean Friendly Businesses, therefore, commit to cease using and selling single-use plastics, to recycle and compost the waste they generate, and to properly treat their wastewater.

Bionest Wastewater Treatment System

We have installed an eco-friendly Bionest system to treat our wastewater. An entirely natural solution, the system will see our wastewater discharged into an on-site drainage or drip irrigation system while offering superior treatment (resulting in clear and odorless wastewater), a modular configuration (the biomass of the system grows as demand on it increases), a reliable resistance to organic and hydraulic shocks, low maintenance costs, and long-lasting components, thereby ensuring the system itself will never need replacing.

Off-Grid Solar Energy System

We’re also aiming to implement a solar energy system (via HiPower) to ensure the energy we rely on is independently generated off-grid, in a thoroughly environmentally-friendly and sustainable way.


Installing such an energy system should guarantee our energy supply is entirely reliable and our energy consumption thoroughly efficient, while reducing our electricity costs and, of course, significantly reducing our CO2 emissions.


If you would like to know more about our eco-friendly commitments and plans, please don’t hesitate to contact us – we’ll be happy to talk to you.

Raw Botanicals Organic Amenities

Raw Botanicals supplies Ventura Santa Teresa with high-quality, 100% organic amenities and cosmetics. Their mission is to lead a movement toward circular carbon positive and transparent luxury amenities. Their circular beauty & wellness model is core to drastically lowering our carbon emissions.


Sustainable luxury to us means providing our clients with products that are not only the best quality, but also do the most good.


Simply put, luxury sustainability means caring not only about how well the product works, but how it makes you feel, and most importantly how your decision will impact the world around you.


By choosing Ventura Santa Teresa you can be ensured that environmental care is one of the most important features of our mission.


Raw Botanicals believe that refill should always come before recycling. That’s why they consider themselves the pioneers of the refill movement in Costa Rica.
