REMOTE Talk with Hans Pfister in Costa Rica now available on Youtube

April 10, 2019


An award-winning hotel owner based in Costa Rica, Hans Pfister led one of the best moments of REMOTE Latin America Costa Rica 2018. Comprised of inspiring lessons learned from 20 years of working in sustainable and ecotourism with the Cayuga Collection, his talk is now available on the REMOTE Channel on YouTube.


He posed such provocative questions as:


– Why should a seaside restaurant in the tropics serve salmon, if it’s not naturally from the region? Knowing that plastic bottles and straws are harmful to nature, when are we going to stop using them?

– Are we giving the right value to the people with whom we work and the local population?



Hans assumed that travelers want authentic experiences, like when he hosted Michael Schumacher and saw how the Formula 1 pilot felt at home when playing soccer with the hotel employees. To watch the entire talk, click here.
