We innovate to Promote Sustainable Tourism

CANAECO is a private non-profit organization that works to promote sustainability in the Costa Rican tourism sector. It was created on June 17, 2003, becoming the first chamber that specifically addresses the issues of ecotourism and sustainable tourism in the country and in Central America.


We support companies in their sustainability management.

For more than 20 years we have developed projects that allow companies to strengthen their sustainability management through training, volunteering, awareness campaigns, consultancy, strategic alliances and development of projects such as the Climate-Conscious Travelers Program and the International Conference in Sustainable Tourism, Planet, People, Peace.
