Leo Chaves at La Carpio

Leo Chaves at La Carpio

We are very proud of our friend and colleague Leo Chaves Salgado, Customer Service and Operations Director at Costa Rica Sun Tours. For the past 18 months Leo has been spending many of his Saturday mornings at La Carpio, a marginal neighborhood in San Jose, sharing his passion and knowledge of photography with community residents. These photography workshops are part of a very successful program of La Escuela de Musica Sifais (The Sifais Music School) which promotes personal growth and social integration through the development of artistic talent.

Earlier this year when Leo was escorting one of our travel partners, Cinzia Mucciante of South America Travel Centre, on a trip to Tortuguero, he mentioned his involvement in this program.
What a happy surprise when 4 brand new Cannon cameras arrived at our office this week courtesy of Cinzia and her husband John, for Leo to use in his workshops. Muchas gracias!
If anyone else might be interested in learning more about this project or donating a new or used camera please contact Leo at leoaves@crsuntours.com
