Non-profit foundation created in 2008 to help people with cancer, their families and close friends, Funcavida is specialised in supporting, training and assisting people living this situation. More recently, the foundation opened a travel agency, FUNCAVIAJES, (duly registered at the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo ICT, member of ISTO), which offers tourism 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 from the tourism and other fields. The Foundation is a partner of the "National Programme 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.
