Cañas, Guanacaste. Taboga was awarded the `four-star Ecological Blue Flag´ under the agricultural category.
The `Blue Flag Ecological Program` was born in 1996 aiming at the cleanliness of the Costa Rican beaches. Over the years, this initiative was broadened to include different development areas and productive sectors of our country. Its primary objective is the conservation and protection of water and natural resources and the improvement of hygienic-sanitary conditions and public health.
