Summary of Pura Vida Cause
Community located in the Yorkin Indigenous Reserve, on the shores of the La Amistad National Park on the border between Costa Rica and Panama. In this community live the indigenous Bribri population that maintains its traditions, lifestyle and indigenous legacy of the southern Caribbean of Costa Rica. The community has cocoa and banana plantations that together with tourism are its main economic activities. The disadvantages of this community are that they do not have electricity and its difficult access, because in order to reach Yorkin, it can only be done in Cayuco or a local artisanal boat or walking for several hours through the forest.
This community seeks to transmit to tourists and volunteers basic knowledge about conservation processes, harmony with nature, Bribrí indigenous culture and generation of opportunities thanks to their traditions and experiences.Blogging gives your site a voice, so let your business’ personality shine through.
