The Sustainable Jungle Podcast

31 · OROPOPO EXPERIENCE · MINDFULNESS & DEEP TRAVEL IN COSTA RICA

January 10, 2019

Tomás and Marcelo are two Costa Rican biologists who founded deep travel, ecotourism company, the Oropopo Experience, based in San José, Costa Rica. They have a “strong passion for the understanding and protection of tropical environments, as well as sharing the scientific information with people”. Their mission is to “provide authentic experiences around ecosystems and communities of Costa Rica, highly focused in biology, human quality and operational sustainability”.

We spent two weeks hanging out with these two passionate biologists in San Jose as well as the jungles and towns of rural Costa Rica. It was quite the epic adventure and at the end we sat down with Tomás and Celo to chat out what floats their boat, mindfulness in nature, their favourite moments in wild places, why Costa Rica is winning at conservation and renewable energy and thoughts on becoming a more sustainable person. We recorded this episode on the banks of the Tortugeuro river so you will hear the sounds of birds, boats and locals going about their business. Enjoy!
