Green Costa Rica Hotels celebrate Award by offering Deals

Two eco-resorts located at Costa Rica's Manzanillo Beach have been awarded the Ecological Blue Flag for 2009. These two exceptional Costa Rica hotels have been taking extremely good care of the beach they share by keeping its shores clean, unpolluted and protected to ensure that it remains that way in the future.

Blue Flags are not that common or that easily awarded and those beaches selected as part of the scheme must comply with a strict set of rules and guidelines which range from the quality of the bathing water, to the state of cleanliness, waste disposal and ongoing environmental activities offered (minimum four). Currently there are over 3300 blue Flag beaches in the world, most of which are in Europe where the scheme originated back in 1987 during the "European Year of the Environment". In the Caribbean there are only 2 islands with blue flags; the Bahamas with 2 blue marinas and Puerto Rico with 5 impeccable blue beaches. With Costa Rica being the third flagged country in the tropics, travellers heading here can rest assured that they will be at one of the world's purest beach holiday destinations.

The Allegro Papagayo Resort and the Occidental Grand Papagayo Resort who now stand as proud winners of this important environmental recognition are the only Costa Rica hotels with their own stretch of blue flagged beach, and as environmentally-friendly pioneers they want to celebrate their eco achievement with guests by introducing a set of new summer deals. At the Allegro Papagayo they've reduced their nightly rates starting from $68 whilst also running a Kids Special where children under the age of 12 can stay for free until 18th December. A great way to get the little ones involved in fun environmental beach activities during your Costa Rica holiday at these pure shores!

At the nearby Occidental Grand Allegro Papagayo they've also reduced their nightly rates which now start from $122. In addition to this they also feature a Special Free Night Promotion that consists of a fourth night free if guests book three nights in Royal Club accommodation.

With the new hot offers at these award-winning Costa Rica hotels and their impeccable new landmark beach there's no better excuse to indulge in an eco-friendly Costa Rica holiday and enjoy its pure waters at what has now been officially declared one of the best beaches in the world!
