Two years ago, in September 2019, Peninsula Papagayo launched the coral restoration initiative. Spearheaded by Miguel Sánchez, General Manager of Papagayo Explorers, the coral restoration initiative aims to build awareness of coral degradation worldwide, and to recuperate the lost coral beds in Bahía Culebra. Throughout the year, members and guests of the peninsula are invited to participate by joining the Papagayo Explorers for a dive down to explore and clean the coral nurseries just offshore. Now, for the first time since embarking on this initiative, Peninsula Papagayo will be participating in Coral Mania – an annual, worldwide event to harvest corals from nurseries and outplant them in nearby reefs where the coral structure has collapsed.
