Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

September 4, 2009

The local chamber of commerce and business community have made efforts to become part of the solution to the situation in ManuelAntonioNational Park. At present, the nonprofits ProParques and FUNDECOR are working with other national parks in Costa Rica, providing funding and services to lighten the load of the Environment, Energy and Telecommunications Ministry (MINAET) and to help engage more tourists. A public meeting was held recently, as was a fundraising luncheon at the Kamuk hotel to collect money to repair the trail to Punta Catedral. For more information on how to help with this great cause, please contact the chamber of commerce at 2777-0749.
