At Tango Mar Hotel we are aware of the importance of offering our services in accordance with a global operating system that respects the environment and supports the community.

Our commitment is confirmed by the implementation of sustainable practices, by means of which we have started the process to obtain the Tourism Sustainability Certificate (TSC) issued by the Costa Rica Tourist Board (ICT).

TSC was designed to classify and distinguish tourist companies according to the degree by which their operations come close to a model of sustainability, in terms of the management of natural, cultural and social resources.

This award is issued by the National Commission of Accreditation located in Costa Rica.

Currently, we have achieved the implementation of recycling programs and water and energy saving programs.
