US Ambassador to Costa Rica, Fitzgerald Haney, visits INOGO and Caminos
On April 4, 2017 Ambassador Haney visited the Osa Peninsula, with the goal of seeing first-hand the results of different efforts in the region that have been funded by US entities seeking to promote conservation, development, and security. The Ambassador asked to meet with Caminos de Osa and INOGO during lunch, which was prepared by Caminos entrepreneur and board member Rocio Vargas. Rocio and her team prepared the lunch using 100% local products, and with a sophisticated twist brought by the recent efforts to develop the gastronomy of the zone (funded by CRUSA, BID-FOMIN, and implemented by IMAGINE XYZ).
During the lunch, the conversation centered around the special characteristics of the region, including the welcoming nature of the people and the opportunity for people to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature. This opportunity to disconnect and find wellbeing and health is something that tourists are seeking when they come to the Osa Peninsula. The group also discussed the importance of leadership opportunities for youth, including exchanges to get to know other parts of the country in order to provide them with an expanded perspective.
