How do the Travel Experts save us money?
We save you money by knowing how best to visit the country. For example, the best ways to combine tours for a better rate and to maximize your vacation time. The cheapest most effiicient ways to get from point A to point B with transfers and by applying discounts to your package price when we are able. You can even haggle with us, we cant always get better rates but we dont mind clients asking :-) - We never raise rates on any hotels or tours.
What is Dogland Shelter & Project Sanctuary - Costa Rica?
Dogland Shelter - is one of the few shelters in the country. They are a non profit, no-kill shelter located in San Ramon. Currently the shelter houses about 160 dogs. The shelter was created by Helene Wirt and her devotion and deep love of animals has touched us greatly. C.R. Referrals is proud to be a corporate sponsor of the shelter. Every client who travels with us we make a spnsorship donation to the shelter in the clients name.
Project Sanctuary - Costa Rica is an idea that has come out of necessity. Services that are taken for granted in many countries around the world simply don't exist here. Costa Rica has no dog catchers, few shelters, no adequate facilities at all for a growing problem. Dogs and cats of all ages are dumped on the streets of Costa Rica every day. A lack of education and poverty leads to families and individuals not getting their animals fixed. This inevitably leads to babies who more often than not end up in the streets. Many people try and do the best we can with what we have, but it falls way too short of any lasting impact.
Project Sanctuary - Costa Rica is just in its initial planning stages, but when finished, will be a small farm where abandoned and unwanted animals may find safety and love. The facility would provide medical treatment, a rigorous adoption program, regional educational programs, and free Spay & neutering clinics. STRONGLY against euthanasia.
In the end we would like to bring all the separate groups and individuals working on this problem, throughout Costa Rica, and later, Central America, together, to fight this on going issue. If successful we will be one of the first animal shelters in all of Costa Rica. The Sanctuary will be launching a website in the 4th quarter of 2010, until then check back here for updates.
Who are you?
C.R. Referrals is the brainchild of a group of people who were working in the Tourism Sector and Real Estate Sectors here in Costa Rica. They all share this in common, a love of Costa Rica and a love of animals of all kinds.
We came to the conclusion that more needs to be done. The idea of taking a common business practice here, providing what we know as Costa Rican insiders, and working in the Travel / Real Estate sectors, & getting local area businesses to address a problem that is happening in their own back yards. Seemed like common sense...
The decision to put two seperate companies under a single website was a business desicion, as we work towards a common goal
How are the businesses in your referral network chosen?
Our Travel and Real Estate Experts have put together a list of companies, that in first hand experience in dealing with, and knowing personally, have shown a certain pride and dedication to the work they do. Many of the companies the Travel Experts use also hold "Certificates of Sustainable Tourism". These certificates are given out by the ICT to acknowledge businesses that go above and beyond in conservation, community programs, and sustainable (green) operations of there businesses.
Cost of services was not as important a consideration in putting together our database of affiliates. Quality of service, "green" practices in the day to day operation, and most important personal experience were the determining factors.
You really need to be the best of the best to make it onto this list.
