Ecological Blue Flag
The BAE program was implemented in 1996 in Costa Rica under the auspices of the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism and the Costa Rican Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers. This starts the work with the only category of Ecological Blue Flag of beaches and it keeps extending over time to many other categories such as schools, municipalities, sustainable homes, etc. always with ecological implications.
It consists of maintaining our beach with minimum quality that considers it worthy of its Ecological Blue Flag. This includes cleanings, labelling, analysis and control of water at the beach. In addition, we are giving environmental talks to the community in order to explain the importance of the program. All this is monitoring and controlled by the ICT and AyA of Costa Rica.
