Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

October 6, 2011

Congratulations to Byblos Resort and Casino on the road to Manuel Antonio National Park for its recent Certification for Sustainable Tourism (CST) qualification. The hotel has worked hard for two years to qualify as a sustainable hotel and join the prestigious list of other tourism operations in our area participating in the CST program. 

“For a 25-year-old hotel, we have made great strides in trying to reduce our overall carbon footprint and show our commitment to the environment. We freely acknowledge that we have much more to learn and do to earn further leaves in the CST program, so we will not be sitting back satisfied with how far we have come,” said Kimberly Barron, marketing director for the hotel.

Tennis Club Quepos will host the Quepos Open 2011 Nov. 1-6. The club is looking forward to sharing a beautiful environment, friendly atmosphere and some great tennis matches with the community. Registration for the tournament is open until Oct. 20; email tennisclubquepos@gmail.com or call 8666-4212. The tennis club is in the Palmas Pacifica development, 2.5 kilometers from the Palí supermarket on the way to the airport.
