Reforestation is the most important action Nayara Tented Camp takes to protect the rainforest and the wildlife that lives near and in the resort. Planting new trees reduces the number of greenhouse gases in the air, benefiting the local climate. As those new trees grow, they help rebuild endangered habitats, the leading threat to the health of all wild animal species. They have slowly and painstakingly replanted native species in the forest and set out a tropical garden throughout the resort which has created a natural refuge for birds, monkeys and sloths. They have an extensive collection of tropical plants including palms, cycads, flowering trees, and vines. Their collection also includes different varieties of ginger, heliconias, and tropical bamboo.

Nayara Tented Camp thinks local, they want their local community to thrive. The majority of their staff members come from the neighboring town of La Fortuna de San Carlos. They offer them free transportation, sustainable tourism education, and health services. Some of their additional local initiatives include free early education for their employees’ children, financial support to a local orphanage (Hogarcito de Niños) and support for local artists.
