Rural communities within the region of Monteverde, Costa Rica, and along the long-distance hiking trail the Sendero Pacífico lack an equal distribution of tourism. We worked alongside the World Trails Network to encourage the communities’ socio-economic development by evaluating e-commerce platforms and analyzing the logistical feasibility of placing locally made products onto the national and U.S. markets. We interviewed community representatives and local producers to learn of the best options to develop a phased-in digital marketplace. We created an informational manual highlighting a step-by-step approach with details about product regulations, shipping options, and e-commerce platforms for the communities to become engaged in the world of digital commerce.
