Hello! We are MareBlu an Environmental Conservation Organization, based in Costa Rica, founded 4 years ago by our director and activist Geronimo Ciuti Z.

MareBlu is the first official Ocean Plastic recovery expedition program of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

Our main goal is to make the oceans, rivers, and coastlines plastic free primarily through our coastal cleanup expeditions. We also have an approach with regenerative programs that are possible thanks to our international volunteer program. We have had volunteers from more than 25 countries around the world participating in our projects. We also receive sponsorship from Companies and friends that believe that change is a priority for our planet.

MareBlu’s Volunteer Camp is located inside of Punta Leona Resort, which is an hour’s drive from San Jose International Airport. 

Punta Leona is surrounded by natural beauty and in the heart of the central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

This location allows us to be close to many beaches, that desperately need our help. Plastic Pollution from our main rivers coming from San Jose combined with poor commercial fishing practices are the major sources of contamination on the coastlines. Our camp has sleeping quarters for 12 volunteers at a time and serve all meals.

The main focus of the project is on

Social Impact

There’s so many ways you can get involved to help the environment, to make an impact against Climate Change and help people from surrounding Communities of our beautiful country that are in need of a new opportunity.

As you can see in our video, through one of our Initiatives called “Fishing Plastic” we can do an effective partnership, and ensure sustainable results necessary for the ecosystems and the people in the area. By sponsoring activities like this you are helping not only to recover tons of plastic and other materials from our coast lines to be up cycled but also giving families the opportunity to have a job and bring food to their households.
