Blood Donation Campaign

 

Generosity is one of the most ennobling of the virtues one has. Sharing with others, living today and doing good without worrying about tomorrow – this is what embraces the essence of a generous being. It is how hearts are conquered; get to know each heart so that all become one with yourself.

There is no doubt that voluntary blood donors have saved not one life but many thousands of lives. But the supreme value of blood is not in the red liquid that flows through our arteries and veins, but in the love of the heart that compels it to surrender.

To share your love by giving blood elevates this humanitarian act to heights almost divine. This is what employees of Parador Resort & Spa have done today; join the National Bank and generously share a bit of life to those who need it most.

THANKS TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED A DROP OF LOVE. “

Packing for A Purpose: Making a Positive Impact in Manuel Antonio

 

Since opening our doors in 1993, Parador Resort & Spa in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, has inspired travelers to protect, recycle, respect and honor precious resources at home and beyond, a fact that recently earned our hotel the coveted Platinum Award for “Leader in Sustainable Tourism” from National Geographic Traveler Magazine and Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI).

The global initiative Pack for a Purpose caught our attention the minute we heard about their work encouraging travelers to use available space in their luggage to provide supplies to the communities they visit. Just five pounds (2.27 kilos) can make a world of difference.

We joined forces with them and today, thanks to our generous guests, the kids of the Anita and Quebrada Arroyo Primary School and the El Negro Primary School are smiling as they learn. View Photo Gallery>>

The children in our area have now been blessed with the pencils, notebooks and books they needed to enhance their education, social skills and lives.

Recently, our resort had the honor of hosting the VIP crew from “Little People, Big World” who filmed an entire episode about the Roloff family on a visit to Costa Rica.  

To our surprise, Amy Roloff, an early education teacher, her son Zachary’s girlfriend Victoria Patton, who’s studying to be an elementary school teacher, and Molly Roloff, a Spanish major in college, took the opportunity to deliver the supplies to the schools and spend some time with the students.

This is what we call making a lasting impact on the lives of children! Would you like to join us? Click here to learn more about what supplies you can bring >>

Teach the Children Well: “Jacinto Basurilla” Event

Teach the children well: Parador Resort & Spa was among the sponsors of a recent activity in Manuel Antonio that took one more step towards ensuring a better future for our children and our planet.

The “Jacinto Basurilla” event—hosted by the Costa Rican Tourism Institute—brought together 150 kids from several local schools to teach them how to care for the environment and their community in different ways such as recycling, by not throwing trash in the streets and more.

A big shout out to our team at Parador for volunteering and to all the kids for a job well done!! View Photo Gallery >>
