Costa Rica enjoys three types of tourism and Ailanto aims at satisfying all of these segments.
Health tourism is an old concept. People have been traveling from their home countries to other
parts of the world for centuries in search of new personal medical treatments. The reasons for this
of tourism are as varied as the travelers. People choose Costa Rica medical services for two main
reasons: high quality and reasonable prices.
Rising healthcare costs in the United States and Canada have been the greatest boost to
international health tourism, but are by no means the only factor driving this new industry. The main
engine driving the new wellness revolution is the baby boomers, the population born between 1945
and 1964. One billion baby boomers turn 60 this year and are looking for effective strategies to stay
healthy, young-looking, and more active. This population represents only 16% of the world population
but controls 65% of its wealth and resources. Baby boomers are considering the higher quality and
wider spectrum of health care services offered in Costa Rica and other Latin American destinations.
Some important trends guarantee that the market for medical tourism will continue to expand in the
years ahead. By 2015, the health of the vast Baby Boom generation will have begun its slow decline,
and with more than 220 million Boomers in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and New
Zealand, this represents a significant market for high-quality medical care.
The primary goal of Ailanto is to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of international
visitors. To establish balance and health, guests are encouraged to spend extended periods of time
at the facilities. Some may visit for only a few days while others may choose their healing holidays to
several weeks. When they are not busy undergoing treatments at the centers, they can join friends
and family members to partake in the many social, cultural and sport activities available at the
Resort. Activities at our health community or nearby include nature walks, tennis, swimming, fishing,
horseback riding, hiking, cooking, painting, gardening, bird watching and sightseeing.
Costa Rica is easily accessible by air from all parts of the world. It has an open health care system,
well-equipped modern clinics and hospitals, and medical personnel trained in the finest international
teaching centers. In 1995 the World Health Organization ranked Costa Rica amongst the top twenty
medical systems in the world.
At 50,895 square kilometers, Costa Rica is the second-smallest Central American nation after El
Salvador. While occupying only .06% of the planet’s land mass, it boasts 6% of the world’s
biodiversity. At its narrowest point in the south, only 119 km separate the Caribbean from the Pacific.
One can savor a leisurely breakfast on the Caribbean and take an ambling five-hour drive to the
Pacific for dinner. At its broadest point, Costa Rica is a mere 280 km wide.
Lying between 8 and 11 degrees north of the equator, Costa Rica sits wholly within the tropics; it
boasts more than a dozen distinct climatic zones. Atop the highest mountains in cooler months, even
ice and snow aren’t unknown.
Costa Rica sits astride a jagged series of volcanoes and mountains, part of the great Andean-Sierra
Madre chain, which runs the length of the western littoral of the Americas. From the Pacific coast of
Costa Rica, great cones and domes dominate the landscape, and you’re usually in sight of
volcanoes in the northern part of the country.
Beaches are a major calling card of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, which is deeply indented with
bays, inlets and two large gulfs, the Golfo de Nicoya (in the north) and Golfo Dulce (in the south).
Ailanto Recreation Area is located right at the foothills of the Miravalles Volcano surrounded by a
7500-acre protected area, with its own micro-climate; it enjoys warm days and cool nights. It is the
ideal place for a relaxing and restoring vacation.
Eco-tourism, also known as ecological tourism, is a form
of tourism which appeals to the ecologically and socially
conscious. Generally speaking, Eco-tourism focuses on local
culture, wilderness adventures, volunteering, personal growth,
and learning new ways to live on the planet. Eco-tourism
usually involves travel to destinations where flora, fauna, and
cultural heritage are the primary attractions. Responsible Eco-
tourism includes programs that minimize the negative aspects
of conventional tourism on the environment, and enhance the
cultural integrity of local people. In addition to enjoying the
environmental and cultural aspects, an integral part of Eco-
tourism is in the promotion of recycling, energy efficiency, water
conservation, and creation of economic opportunities for the
We adhere to the rules of Eco-tourism by:
1.Conserving the biological and cultural diversity through ecosystem protection
2.Promoting the sustainable use of biodiversity by providing jobs to local populations
3.Sharing of socio-economic benefits with local communities and indigenous people
4.Increasing the environmental & cultural knowledge
5.Minimizing the environmental impact of tourism
6.Featuring the local culture, flora and fauna as main attractions
For many countries, Eco-tourism is not simply a marginal activity to finance protection of the
environment but a major industry of the national economy. In Costa Rica Eco-tourism represents a
significant portion of the gross domestic product and economic activity.
It is estimated that there are more than five million Eco-tourists worldwide, with the majority of the
Eco-tourist population coming from the United States, with others from Western Europe, Canada, and
Australia. Costa Rica is a world-renowned Eco-tourism destination, with millions of tourists coming
and continuing to come to enjoy this country’s bounty.
1% of Ailanto’s operating revenue has been earmarked for
improvement of the local roads, village and services for the
residents of Fortuna and Bagaces.
Ailanto will establish a free training center to teach the
English language to those who wish to learn and to train
its workers in the Ailanto culture of service and customer
satisfaction. In exchange, our residents teaching English
can receive Spanish lessons so that they can also learn
how to communicate with their neighbors.
