Sumario: This article presents the importance of having indicators of sustainability in the monitoring process of peripheral spaces around protected areas that support the development of conservation activities. The analysis was done by means of developing a case study that estimated the Sustainability Approximation Index (IAS) in the periphery of Alberto Manuel Brenes Biological Reserve (ReBAMB). It included a study of the environmental, socio-economical and infrastructure conditions of the communities located around this protected area. The results provided by the IAS show a value of 0,59 which is considered as an intermediate value according to the evaluation applied by this methodology. It reveals that even though there is not an excessive deterioration of the variables studied, there is a call for the generation and restatement of the development policies applied in the analyzed zone; this will guarantee the consolidation of the ReBAMB as a protected area that will benefit the communities and the conservation processes carried out by in the country.
