Caminos de Liderazgo seeks the cooperation of the private, public, academic, and non-profit sectors to encourage the creation of value for all, improving the quality of life of the inhabitants of the region and allowing the understanding of conservation as a source of added value for the social and economic development of Osa. 

One of the most fruitful alliances we formed for this project was with our mentors to include a mentoring component to the formation of our entrepreneurs. During the length of the project, besides the training workshops, each tourism entrepreneur received support and guidance from a local mentor with more experience in the tourism industry. 


In the same way, on a local level, cooperation mechanisms were generated to guarantee an inclusive decision-making process when it comes to the growth of the project. 

On February 6th, 2015, the Caminos de Osa Association began to take shape, with the goal of creating a local governance entity that manages the financial, environmental, and social sustainability of the Caminos de Osa tourist destination as a means to encourage the integrated and sustainable development of the region.
