Solid Waste Management Plan 


Ocotea Tours & Transfers is aware of the importance of proper solid waste management in tourist destinations like Monteverde. Monteverde has undergone a transition in the type of business in the last 30 years, which have varied from farming to economic development based on tourism. 

For this reason since May of 2014, Ocotea Tours & Transfers joined the project Building the foundation for an Integral Solid Waste Management in Monteverde Puntarenas (
Desarrollando la bases para un Sistema de Gesti�n Integral de Residuos S�lidos en Monteverde de Puntarenas). This initiative is led by the UNED and has the support of COMIRES in order to build its Comprehensive Plan Solid Waste Management, along with other organizations in the Monteverde district.

We are implementing concrete actions such as the installation of two bins for waste separation at source. Moreover, recycled paper is used in all possible cases, the rest is donated to a local artisan for mask making and other paper based crafts; and individual food packages are avoided to reduce waste.  

As company we expect to complete our Waste Management Plan by the end of the second semester, which will be an important contribution to reducing the negative impacts of solid waste generation. 

We will keep you updated!


Rain for Reforestation


En Ocotea Tours & Transfers we know about the importanc of the forest as an esential art of life on Earth, its oxygen, fresh water, shelter and food supply for many species of plants and animals; in addition to safeguarding the environment, prevent landslides, and contribute to climate change mitigation. 

For this reason, we use this rainy season to encourage and implement reforestation. In these months the trees receive rainwater, adapt well to the soil and start rooting to have enough strength for drier times and thus ensuring its survival. 



Parade for Climate Change in Monteverde


Ocotea Tours & Transfers joins this parade to support from Monteverde the UN summit in New York on the climate crisis. UN Secretary� General Ban Ki-�moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
