si como no

Introduction

Si Como No is an unassuming, family-friendly luxury eco-resort surrounded by Manuel Antonio’s rainforests. Known for earning the highest CST 5 LEAF Certified sustainable property rating, the resort has been consistently responsible for promoting eco-tourism in the area in form of everything from a fastidious recycling policy to path-breaking conservation programs. Though not a thoroughbred eco-lodge, Si Como No’s owners have made abundant efforts to mitigate the resort’s effect on the surrounding environment and local community. The property’s most significant input to the cause of local eco-tourism comes in the form of a Butterfly Garden and a well-maintained 30-acre wildlife retreat. Not just that, following the vision of founder CEO Jim Damalas, the resort even takes the region’s local eco- cultural practices to adjoining farm villages. Jim Damalas has dexterously woven quality, comfort and convenience with environmentally responsible tourism and seamless hospitality.
