Most recently, they opened a travel agency, FUNCAVIAJES, (duly registered at the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo - ICT, member of ISTO), which offers tourist packages in Costa Rica (domestic tourism) for health and well-being based on social tourism. The packages are specially designed with government institutions and private companies (tourism and others). The Foundation is a partner in the "National Program of Integral Social Tourism", created by ICT and launched in June 2019 on the occasion of ISTO Americas' Meeting of the Americas of Social Tourism.
