Congratulations Ojochal!

Ojochal, on the Ballena Coast was approached in April of 2015 by the officials for Blue Flags, as a community, to see if they were interested in doing the work towards receiving a Blue Flag.  At a “town Hall” meeting of the community, it was unanimously decided that we would. A committee was formed and together with the local “ADI” / town council, the process was begun.  

One year later…here we are!

This first white star on the Blue Flag is for:
The “Category Community” – for the organization and development in accordance with the protection of natural resources, the search for improved hygienic and sanitary conditions and improved public health for Costaricans.
