Our History:

ASEPALECO was created with the initial energy of the DRIP initiative, a project by the Costa Rican and Dutch governments. Among the many activities that DRIP performed, they also developed a momentum for organizing the conservationist sector in the Nicoya Peninsula. In 1991, ASEPALECO was formally founded during an assembly of more than 100 members. Later, DRIP concluded its projects with ASEPALECO and today the organization continues its successful work independently.
