Named one of the top agricultural projects in the country, the multi-award-winning Home Gardens initiative supported by Peninsula Papagayo and Creciendo Juntos in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture welcomes 50 new families from another eight communities to its groundbreaking seven-month agricultural training program, while recent graduates from the local community of El Triunfo have banded together to become Peninsula Papagayo’s first local produce supplier.

The third annual Peninsula Papagayo Invitational will take place on January 13th & 14th, 2022, with proceeds earmarked for a new technology hub to benefit local families in the surrounding communities.

What does local outreach look like at Peninsula Papagayo? Here are two recent examples: Four Seasons guests in town to support youth literacy through book donations to local schools; and a long-time resident member with a history of giving back — dedicated to putting healthy food on the table while creating a brighter future for local families.

Creciendo Juntos turns 20 and continues to grow and make a difference in the 19 communities surrounding Peninsula Papagayo. Its latest public-private partnership, a new medical clinic in nearby Corralillos, opened July 7, 2021. The group’s executive director, Elsa Bonilla, sat down with us recently to talk about the group’s latest public-private partnership and what it means for local Guanacestecans.

The 2nd annual member-guest charity golf tournament will be held January 23-24th with 100% of entry fees to benefit nearby Guardia High School.

One of the highlights for the players at this year’s member-guest charity golf tournament was spending time with former World No. 1 Ernie Els. The 2019 Presidents Cup captain was in Costa Rica to host the annual event, in aid of local schools.
