The government established the Blue Flag (Bandera Azul) Certification program in to engage all coastal communities in taking care of their beaches. Costa Rica′s Blue Flag program, modeled after a European program to identify and celebrate the world's cleanest, safest beaches based upon ecological quality and visitor protection, certifies only the best quality beaches in the nation. Costa Rica created its own Blue Flag program with strict objective rating standards involving water and beach qualities of cleanliness. Only those beaches obtaining a water and beach quality score of 90 or higher (out of 100) are certified as “Blue Flag.” The National Water Laboratory conducts regular bacteriological sampling of water
at our beaches, since water quality is one of the most important factors in determining whether or not beach communities gain (or lose) the coveted Blue Flag status. Other factors include tourism safety and beach cleanliness. Playa Flamingo, known locally also as “Playa Blanca,” has received the highest possible Blue Flag designation for a beach in Costa Rica, that of three stars. The entire community recognizes that our efforts at the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa are a key factor in ensuring that Playa Flamingo has sustained its Blue Flag Certification for many years and this year received a three star rating.
