About El Encanto de la Piedra Blanca 

El Encanto tourism project was set up in 1996, as part of the various initiatives of the Conservation and Development Association of the Mountains of Escazú, CODECE. Due to the natural beauty of the mountains, many people have been building homes here, posing a serious threat to the natural ecosystems. As a way to fight back, in 1985 the community of San Antonio organized themselves to defend the natural beauty of the Escazú Mountains. Since then, the community has continued defending their right to fresh air, clean water, and to better their standard of living. 

The Encanto de la Piedra Blanca emerges as a tourism project with the aim of preserving and sharing the rich cultural heritage that San Antonio de Escazu offers. At the same time, it develops new sources of income for the surrounding community.
