Costa Rican Bribri natives will have their own tourism agency

Recently 15 graduates of the Program of Local Indigenous Guides received their accreditation as local guides by the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT); this thanks to the efforts of the Equal Gender Office, and the career of Sustainable Rural Tourism Management of the Technological Institute of Costa Rica (TEC).

This was a process of three years of education and training in Talamanca, and it’s the only touristic guide program with a world view, not just in Costa Rica but in Central America, which means that these group of graduates are specialists in Bribri-Cabécar cultural heritage of chibchence lineage.
